After the memorial on Saturday, the hubby and I attended my boss', although I really consider him a friend, wedding. This one has been a long time coming and I was delighted to attend (even though I'm really not a fan of social events and get really anxious about them). It was an Episcopalian ceremony. I've never attended one and it was quite beautiful (although the incense was a little much for my head). It was an amazing sight to see him so happy and so in love.
The reception was nice. It was a beautiful night outside. I tried the pear cider (delicious) and chatted with some co-workers. Kids ran around playing with a basket of balls that David brought out for them. It was such a beautiful night and the best part was seeing David so very happy. I can't think of a more deserving person.
I decided to make a card for him (he very specifically said no gifts). I thought about doing something whimsical, but then changed my mind for something more formal. I don't have many traditional wedding stamps, but I did find this delightful silhouette in an Inkadinkado wedding set. I used some Verafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I used a dies from my new My Favorite Things Blueprints #13 set for the flag. I embossed the vellum with a Victorian folder from Cuttlebug and then used the large stitched die from the Blueprints set to cut it down to size. I stamped the sentiment on the card base using a stamp from the Simply Sentimental set from Newton's Nook. Then it was a matter of laying it together, added a little Lawn Trimmings in Silver Sparkle to finish it off.
