"Portrait" Paper Wedding Card

My family and I have been battling some wicked sicknesses this last week. We've all taken our fare share of down days. My poor kiddos are so brave when they're sick, but man is it heart breaking to watch them. Needless to say my craft room has been empty this week!

I made this wedding card several weeks a go for the sweetest couple!

The love birds are from the Joys of the Seasons Cricut cartridge. The "I Do" sentiment is from the Tie the Knot Cricut cartridge. I cut both out in the base and shadow cuts.

I used the Crate Paper "Portrait Collection" 12x12 paper kit from Shop Pumpkin Spice. The paper has this amazing vintage feel. And the sticker embellishments have a ton of options from wedding, to travel, to everyday journaling. I just love this paper kit!

I just adore making wedding cards for couples in love. I remember my wedding day and all the blessings and joy I felt. When my husband and I opened our cards the next day, I remember crying over what people had written. All their thoughts and prayers meant so much to us. I still have every card we received for our wedding. I just can't part with them!
