A wedding card

I have totally forgot to show you the wedding card I made for my cousin's wedding this summer... I had been wanting the Caketopper stamp set from The Greeting Farm for absolute ages, but couldn't really afford it... So when I got the invitation to the wedding, I was so thrilled to have an excuse to buy this stamp set.... It came in the post just in time for me to be able to make the card before I went away on holiday... so if the card seems a bit simple, it's just because I had to rush it a bit....
Well, without further ado, here it is:

Again, I've made a pop up card. It's so much fun to make these cards.... I don't seem to be able to stop...
You just pull that flap at the top... and voila... up it goes! I was in such a hurry to get this card finished that I forgot to put on the ribbon to pull out the card at the top... would have made it a bit easier to pull out... ach... never mind, it's too late now anyway. I have also stamped a greeting on the "pull out flap" (or whatever it's called....) It says "Beautiful Life".
Apart from the Caketopper stamps from The Greeting Farm I used a few other "old" ones. The image is coloured with water colour pencils and the sentiment and bells are mounted on 3d cushions.

Det bryllupskortet var helt lekkert og når bruden også lager kort, ble det nok tatt godt vare på.
