Congratulations in Red

13 Oct

congratsredSome time ago I had a very “last minute” request for a wedding congratulations card. Sadly, with it being so late, I only had half of an evening to make a card – it’s not much time to plan and become creative (especially mid-week), but I knew I didn’t want to make a typical wedding card in white. I also decided that since the time was so short, I’d go for simplicity.

I came across some white flowers in my endless stash and decided to use them before I forget again that I have them. I thought of a wedding card, but then I wanted something more “universal”: this card will work as a wedding congratulation, a card for a beloved one (are there any romantic guys who still give their girlfriends cards?) or even a birthday card for this romantic girl, who reads books and listens to classic music all the time.

And since Craft-Szafa asks for a banner of their challenge, here it goes:

Wedding Congratulations

wedding2I think it’s very easy to overdo a wedding congratulations card – a bit too much shiny or gold or silver and suddenly you find it too tacky and not elegant at all.

That’s why, even though I’m tempted to add more ornaments, I do try to stay on the “safe” side: simplicity side.

And in the end, it’s hard to go wrong with pure white adorned with a bit of gold (or silver), isn’t it?

This card was made some time ago as a wedding congratulations for my friend. I wanted to keep it simple and elegant, but couldn’t resist to add a bit of pink.
