Wedding card and new items in the clearance rack

Hi Everyone
We have a friend's wedding this weekend and I love that she's very much into handmade. I did invitations for her sister's baby shower a few years ago and I knew I had to make a card for her and her new hubby :) I don't know about you but wedding cards have to be one of the hardest style of cards for me to make. I did some Pinterest searching for ideas. Ever notice that embossing is a pretty standard thing for wedding cards?
Anyway...Here is what I came up with...I didn't think I would like the white and cream color together but it really worked...Here are a few more photos
 Card details: Measures 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. I embossed some whisper white cardstock using an old Cuttlebug embossing folder, added the natural ribbon, 1/2 a tea lace paper doily and stamped out the mr. & mrs. with Crisp Cantaloupe ink. I used Baked Brown sugar ink with a hostess stamp set and punched it out using the Decorative Label inch.  I then added a very vintage button to finish off the card. I also matted the white embossed layer to some very vanilla cardstock and then mounted that to my whisper white card base.
Supplies: Whisper White Cardstock (100730); Very Vanilla Cardstock (101650), Decorative Label Punch (120907), Natural Ribbon (127844), Tea Lace Doilies (129399), Very Vintage Buttons (129327), Crisp Cantaloupe Ink (131176), Baked Brown Sugar Ink (131174), Paper Trimmer (126889), Snail Adhesive (104332), Banner Greeting and Sweetly Framed Hostess Stamp Sets.

It's a great time to stock up on some oldies but goodies and save up to 80% off (while supplies last).
