For the Bride and Groom.....

Hello everyone: The RETRO RUBBER challenge has a new challenge for you to play with and the theme is WEDDINGS.  I haven't had requests for Wedding cards lately so this was a great opportunity to make one and keep it handy.  I wanted to use this adorable cutouts I've had since like forever and this was my chance.  Here is my card, hope you like it.

 I had this little cutouts in my embellishments drawer, they were bought in Mexico some years ago and had been neglected for a very long time, I think they are the cutest. I had to fussy cut around the image as they have a somewhat wide outline and, since I wanted to put the Groom behind the Bride, that outline was in the way.

 I adore the faces of this images, the Bride, with a blissful look on her pretty face, so happy and dreamy, the Groom.....well.....he looks happy too but, judging by his grin and the sweat on his brow, he also looks.....Ehmm! worried? scared? I don't know, what do you think?
The lovely flowers that serve as a backdrop for the sweet couple are die cut with the fabulous and sadly retired "Botanical Blooms" die set that came out in the 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog, I only bought the dies.  The sentiment is from the 2009-2010 Stampin' Up! set "Teeny Tiny Wishes".
Here is a picture of the finish inside of my card.

The sentiment and the little flowers in the corner are from a 2010 Flourishes set called "Picking Wild Flowers", the die cut is from a Spellbinders die set called "Oval Regalia".
I hope you join us in the RETRO RUBBER gallery, don't forget to visit my awesome teammates' blogs and see their fabulous creations, you'll be happy you did.

What a great way to use this bride and groom from your stash! I am almost sure that it is from the comic strip "Cathy", I used to love her goings on! The flowers are so pretty and the sentiments both front and inside make the card just right!

Absolutely the cutest wedding card that I've ever seen, Maria! Your attention to detail is always spot on. Your stamped sentiment is so elegant. I will have to make sure I remember that one for my next wedding card. Love it!!

Oh, Maria... so many sweet details... where do I begin? I used to buy cut outs and somehow got away from it. This couple is adorable. However, it is the beautiful white botanical flowers that steal the show... so very lovely!!
