Wedding Card

Hello everyone, hope you have great plans for this Mother's Day weekend.
I have a wedding card to share with you that I made for my niece that is getting married and I am unable to attend so I wanted to make something special.
I can not take credit for this card as when I saw the card on the Team KNK blog I knew that was the special card I had to make, so it is totally scraplifted.
The cut files are all designed and set up my a lady that goes by Bird.  She
is so very talented and extremely generous as she shares are her files for FREE, so make sure you go check out her blog.
My card is pretty much a replica of hers except that I added a touch of pewter color as that is the wedding color.  Everything was cut using Bird's files, Make the Cut software and my Cameo.
Just like Bird I used a variety of paper textures, mostly pearl white textured papers.  I embossed parts of the cake to give it a little decorative look. 
Here is a close up of the flowers & leaves that are all made from vellum. 
I carried the same theme to the inside.  I printed the verse on vellum using my Canon printer.  The ink does not dry immediately on vellum so the second it came out of the printer I sprinkled it with pewter/silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I did the same thing on the small saying on the front of the card.
I added a couple stickers to dress up the inside.
Since this card was a bit bulky and it had to be mailed it would not go into a regular envelope so I made an envelope box for it's travel from Arizona to Chicago.
Here it is all tucked away in it's envelopbox.  I place this into a padded envelope and added some foam and other packing to make sure it arrived safely. 
I got word that it did arrive at it's destination safely. :).
In case you are no familiar with Make the Cut software you should check it out HERE,  It is by far the best die cutting software out there.
Well thank you for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think about
my wedding card.
Hope everyone has a very Happy Mother's Day.
