It's Thursday and I'm bringing you a card I made for a friend of mine! We planned a morning back in June to do a mini workshop at my house (hah, I'm talking like I'm an instructor or something) so she could create some cards for graduation and also a wedding. We worked on the graudation cards too long and the wedding card still needed to be done, so I went ahead and pulled this together. It's not a traditional looking wedding card, but I really like how it came out.
My friend told me that the bride loves classical literature and the groom likes to play computer games. I really wanted to make a card that used both of those elements. I was delighted to have the help of my mother-in-law, who is an avid reader, tell me some classics that might work on a wedding card. We found a list online and as I did a sound off, we narrowed it down to three authors, two of poetry and one of short stories. Having them online I printed out my choice in an old looking font and then distressed in Ranger inks and here's a TIP; if you print things out on a Laser printer that uses toner it can be scrapped off with a sanding block then cleaned up with the adhesive remover eraser!!!!!
Classical literature, check!
Now for the gamer groom. Too hard to add some time of a game so I opted for the puzzle card. This mojo sketch hides the Joy Card fold nicely and might even intrigue the groom to figure out how to put it back together again.

Here is a list of challenges that the card is being entered.
