WMS July Release-Day 2

     Welcome back for day 2 of Waltzingmouse Stamps July release! Thank you oh so much for the comments. I always love to hear what you have to say!
     Today the WMS Design Team is showcasing two wedding-themed sentiments that are large and oh so lovely.
     I am continuing my post from yesterday and showing you the inside of the gift card holder. Today it is all about the sentiments and I just love how Claire made them so elegant. *sigh*Bride & Groom 1

     To finish off the front of the insert, I used the background stamp from Asian Gardens for a very simple border and it visually ties the insert and the outside of the card together.Bride & Groom 2

     The inside is a bit hard to see what I’ve done. The insert is three fold with one end glued onto the middle section. Before I glued it, I punched two small holes and cut a slit connecting them making the opening to insert the gift card.
     I think these two sentiments are wedded bliss! They both come from the soon to be released set Big Day Additions.Bride & Groom 3

     Like I said yesterday, I think this holder could be tweaked to become an easy wedding invitation. There is room for a reply envelope and the slot could hold the RSVP and reception info instead of a gift card. My goal is to try to make this into a template and post for you all to use. Wish me luck!!!

     Next up, a “save the date” card. Actually, it is not a card in the sense that you open it up; it’s just one panel. I designed it so that it could be run through a printer (before the embellishments are added) to add the names of the parties and the date. A magnet could be added to the back so it can be hung on the recipient’s fridge. The hearts are from the previously released set Sweethearts. It makes an awesome compliment to this month’s release…think Valentine’s and then some. I will play with the combo more for August’s SOAP.
     The rests of the sets are from this months release. The large oval and matching border are from Ovals-Classic Frames. The silhouettes are from Cameo Creations, The sentiment comes from Big Day EssentialsSave the Date 1
