This card will be the last card that was related to the wedding invitations that I recently made.
A few weeks ago when I was making the wedding invitations, Joan had asked me to go to her daughter bridal shower but I told her no. She had asked a few more times after that and again I declined.
Then last Friday, Joan called and asked me was it possible to make her a special invitation to put in the new photo frame that she bought for her daughter bridal shower. I told her "Sure, it was possible". An hour later I called Joan back and told her that her special invitation was done. Joan didn't question me. Although, she thought that I was insane. I took it as a compliment. :)
The new invitation that Joan asked for wasn't any special from the other. It was just smaller 4" x 6". Joan had asked for four 5" x 7" special invitations that looked like post cards. She was going to frame them so she didn't need the front of the invitation. Then she bought a smaller frame for her daughter. The frame hold two 4 x 6 photos. Joan thought it would be nice to have the invitation on one side of the frame and a wedding photo on the other side. She cut one of the 5 x 7 invitations, of course that didn't fit in the 4 x 6 frame. Joan told me that it took her sometime to call me to make her that invitation. I just didn't understand why would she hesitated. I told her I was glad she decided to call me to make her that smaller invitation. The new invitation fit perfectly in the crystal photo frame and I forgot to take the picture.
Joan called me later Friday evening and told me that I HAD to go to the bridal shower. She wanted to introduce me to a few of her good friends. I couldn't declined her this time. Joan was so excited. So I told her O.k I will go to the bridal shower. I couldn't go empty handed. I had to make her (the bride to be) something special. I didn't have time to make something elaborated. I was thinking of a mini album or a guest signing book but I didn't have time. So I made her this card. This card was inspired from a card that I saw on google. If you google "quilling cards", you would fine tons and tons of beautiful quilling cards.
I didn't know Desirae well. I met her once before this so I thought a congrats card would be appropriate.
Here is the inside.
I knew she was going to frame this card so I didn't elaborate the inside. I like this short and sweet stamp from Whimsical Word (SAB).
It was my first time attending the bridal shower. Joan was making sure I felt comfortable because I told her I didn't know any body at the shower but it turned out I knew a few people. I told Joan I had a good time and I was glad that she MADE me went.
Thank you for stopping by again. Have a wonderful weekend!
