Wedding Cards!

My Mojo has dun gone up an' disappear'd!  I had some wedding cards in mind and couldn't come up with a plan of my own and I found these ones on Pinterest complete with a free downloadable template.  Sometimes CASEing a card helps bring the mojo back.  These cards were inspired by Stamp-n-Design and another card by Stamping Princess whose card was also inspired by the the original Stamp-n-Design card.  I was able to import the pdf template into Inkscape where I was able to convert it into something I could cut on the Cricut using SCAL2.  The dress was embossed with Sizzix's Snowcap embossing folder.  The inside stamping and sentiment comes from Inkadinkado's 97892 Marriage set.  I like how quickly they came together and how they could easily be customized to match the any colour scheme of a wedding.  I considered stamping a "Mr. & Mrs." sentiment to the left of the dress in white but it was a tad large and it would have needed to placed on an angle. I thought it might take away from the simplicity of the card. The only other addition i might add is a velum belly band with the Mr. & Mrs. on it to hold the card closed.  I love gatefold cards but it irritates me that they don't stay closed nicely. 

Thanks for looking!
