Newlywed Monogram


It's time for this week's Gallery Idol contest. The theme is weddings. I always enjoy making wedding cards. My favorite is this cake card, but now I like to incorporate an elegant style. When making wedding cards, I like to personalize them, typically by using the wedding colors. You can get an idea of wedding colors by analyzing the invitation most times. Here, I wanted to take it a step further and add a monogram. At weddings, many couples use a monogram of their names together, so I wanted to display that in a card. Who doesn't like to see their name?!

So, please hop on over to Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest and check out all of those fabulous wedding cards, then vote for your favorite! Have fun!
