Punched Hearts Wedding Card

I've almost got graduation season behind me (still a few more cards to share) and that means it's time for Wedding Season! I made this card at a class this week and LOVED it. So quick, easy and elegant. I think I'll make a few more in different colors so I'm ready for whatever invitation shows up in my mailbox. I have a heck of a time photographing white cards, especially at my desk. It's a rainy day in MN so my outside photo studio is closed. That would be my front step or window ledge. :o) I apologize for the off color in the pics, hopefully you can use your imagination to sharpen things up.

Priscilla always gives us 2 versions of the weekly sketch. This week I went with simple.

My Creation
Image Detail
This is SO easy! Punch out 3 hears (1 black, 1 white, and 1 in 'girly' white). Trim the black heart edges and glue on top of the white heart to create a tux. Add a bit of 'collar bling' to each heart and it's a bride and groom.
I tend to hoard my scraps and couldn't toss out this piece of decorate paper after I punched the heart. I used the negative space for the inside of my card and punched another black heart to fit into the space. A simple rub-on for the sentiment and a few hand drawn doodles to frame it.
