Wedding Card

I made this wedding card for my brother-in-laws wedding. His wife is also a crafter, so I felt like I really needed to go above and beyond to make a special card for their wedding.

This was my first try at this trifold card, and I think it came out great. As I was looking for inspiration for the card, not only did I turn to their wedding invite, but I actually used part of their invite to make my card! I used a stamped image in the center and used the letter "L" from the front of their invite, as well as some of the paper and ribbon from it. My sister-in-law was just so amazed by our card, and I was so proud to give it to her!
