Wedding Card with the Cricut Expression Machine

No Gravatar

A very special friend of mine recently married the love of his life in a small ceremony in Southern California and I wanted to make them a wedding card that they would appreciate.  After watching a series of professionally made videos Paul and Jen (involving ninjas, a Glee tribute, and their dog’s version of how they fell in love) were in, and looking at some of their wedding photos, I was inspired to make a card using their wedding colors.

I got the idea for my card design from a photo of a sample card that came with the Cricut cartridge I used.  I used my Sweethearts Cricut cartridge to cut out the shapes and dry embossed the background paper and sanded it.  The ribbon came from an old baby shower invitation I had received and saved to re-purpose someday.  I inked the edges of the cut-out shapes and added sparkling crystals to the flowers as a mini replica of bride’s bouquet.

Check out some fun pictures from Paul and Jen’s wedding!

  • I love my Cricut Expression but I wish I didn’t have to keep buying cartridges! Still, I must admit the results are stunning.
