Son's and "Daughter's" wedding card

I made this card for my son's (my baby) & his bride's wedding this Saturday. The card is 8 1/2x11 folded. I used white textured cardstock for the base. Their names on the front is layered Nestabilities ovals, radiance white, glitter white, and a charcoal foil. The couple is from Cricut's Wedding Solutions cut at 3 1/2" done in charcoal foil shadowed with glitter white. The bell is from the same cartridge cut at 2" and cut in glitter white, shadowed in the charcoal foil and the bell layer was done in gold foil. The "lace" on the 2 sides is a Martha Stewart punch. It all sits on a piece of embossed white cardstock. I added a few pearls and a piece of ribbon. The inside is computer generated as is my logo on the back of the card.

Symapathy Card

This card was done with my Cricut machine. The bird and the branch with flowers is from Home Decor - the bird cut at 1 3/4" & the branch at 3". The "with sympathy" is from Calligraphy at 2". The card is 8 1/2" x 11" folded - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" in black textured cardstock. The 1st colored rectangle is 7 1/2" x 4 1/2", the black rectangle is 6 1/2" x 3 1/2". The smaller colored rectangle is 6" x 3". There can be so many variations of this card - just changing the colored paper and using different store-bought flowers or cutting flowers from the many cartridges - the possibilities are endless.
