Wedding Wishes for Jason & Moe

The friend who ordered this wedding card also requested a cute version for his friends Jason and Moe. I had to clarify whether Moe was a guy or girl because I've never known a Moe to be a girl. True enough it was a girl but these days you never know, right? Better to get it right the first time! I have to admit that making this card was extremely difficult for me. I wanted it to be both cute and elegant. I had the car sitting around for almost a week trying to figure out the layout. I almost didn't personalize this card because I didn't know how to fit it in with the car. I created so many mock versions that it gave me a headache. I decided to leave it for a few days, hence the cards for my friend's Dad, and that worked well.

Once I returned to the card it was easy. I wish you could see how gorgeously sparkly the car is. I wanted it to be a white limo so I used watermark ink and heat embossed sparkly embossing tinsel on top. In the close up photos you can see all the multi-coloured specks. It's so pretty and the photos do not do it justice at all!

The teal background gives the card its masculine element and the pink on the car makes it feminine. I thought the kraft banner with the bride and groom's names gave the card a nice modern feel.

The stitching is only done on the kraft cardstock and doesn't bind the banner to the card itself because I personally don't like seeing stitching on the inside of a card. Occasionally there's no avoiding it but I usually try to think about my stitching beforehand. :)

Good grief, woman, did you seriously mask all those letters?! Whew, I'm tired just looking at it.
Know what, though? It's totally awesome. Super-cute, in fact.
Oh, and my mom's oldest friend's name is Moe. Short for Maureen :)

Ha, I agree with Angela; you are a masking fool...please tell me there's some special trick. How did you even plan it out?

Love the teal and pink together and the sparkly white limo!
