Cherish the Moment - Card - DT Reveal

I have a wedding this Saturday, and I have been on this card kick for a little while, so I thought what a fun thing to give someone for their wedding, a beautiful handmade card.  I used the wonderful cutter file from RSMobely Designs (file RM00142) that is full of fun flowers.  I altered a bit from the original design, I layered them with an extra smaller layer and distressed the paper more, but the flower shapes, center, and the leaves are all from the cutter file.

I found this cut little tutorial over at Frosted Designs for a fun little card, and on that card are the cute little hearts to represent the bride and groom.  On her card they are larger and the center of attention of the card, but i so wanted to use that idea for my wedding card.  So I added the little accent of the hearts to the side of the words.  They are super easy to make, just punch or cut hearts in white (2) and black (1), cut the sides of one of the white hearts off to make the tuxedo vest shape.  I then used a black sharpie marker and added dots and a little bow tie, then used pearls down the center of the white heart for the bride heart.  Put them together and poof, a cute little bride and groom.

The bride's colors are yellow, so that is the reason for the yellow flower and the touch of yellow flowing in the card.  All the papers in this card are cream or black cardstock, I then just used ink and stamps to create the newspaper look, the lace trim on the tag, and the yellow in the flower.  I then just tucked some tulle and a couple of pearl pins behind the flower, and done!!

For the inside of the card I wrote a lovely sentiment and repeated the bride and groom hearts, but on a larger scale.
