We were privileged to be invited to the wedding, yesterday, of our friends, Rachel and Aaron.  It's been a LONG time since I attended a wedding, and both of our boys were so excited about getting dressed up in suits.  Jack and Ethan were the only children invited to the wedding, and they made me as proud as always!

I am pleased to say that I introduced Rachel to Stampin' Up! last year, hee hee.  I knew she was using Blushing Bride cardstock, the Bella Toile stamp, and Basic Black ribbon to create the wedding bonboniere (using Stampin' Up!'s pillow box die, no less!), so I made our card to tie in with the theme.

Firstly, here's a photo of the bonboniere on our table:

And here is the wedding card I made:

Stamps: Bella Toile, Perfect Punches
Card: Shimmery White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride
Ink: Blushing Bride and Basic Black stampin' pads
Other: Basic Black satin ribbon, Modern Label Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Pinking Heart border punch (*NEW - out 1st December!), mini glue dots, Tombow multi glue

Here's the happy couple signing the marriage register (aren't they beautiful?!):

A rare photo of me, with my two handsome sons:

... and a gorgeous photo of all three of my "boys" (that's Andrew, my hubby, between Ethan and Jack):

Here's one more shot of the happy couple, Rachel and Aaron, at their wedding reception:

It was a very rainy day, but nevertheless a happy, relaxed and highly enjoyable one.  Rachel and Aaron are such a loving couple; they have a  very bright married future ahead of them.


  1. Absolutely stunning card Christine - it's so elegant & a beautiful colour combo. How clever you are to make it to match Rachel's theme! :)
