Live Beautifully Wedding Card

Tomorrow the daughter of one of my scrapbook friends is graduating from college with a teaching degree and in two weeks she's getting married. I've often wondered why June has traditionally been a month for weddings. Maybe it's tied to the timing of graduations. I'm just thrilled for her daughter because she already has a teaching job in a big district in our metropolitan area, not an easy achievement. Both of her parents were teachers, so I'm also glad, as a retired teacher, to see a young person continue with teaching. (My own children saw how much I worked and knew they'd never want to be teachers.)

So with wedding bells ringing, I just had to share a wedding card:

The papers and the gold embossed rose and leaves stamps are part of the Live Beautifully special for May since this is National Scrapbook Month. I watched a youtube tutorial from Really Reasonable Ribbon for making bows with ribbon printed on one side. I was thrilled that all the hearts ended up facing the right direction.

The inside verse is decorated with a zip strip from the gold outlined flowers paper. That verse is one of Papertrey Ink's Tucked In stamp sets.

Thank you for visiting! May God bless your crafting and the recipients of your crafting!
