Elegant Wedding invites

I made this card after I saw the 2 way open challenge on SCS. I had an elegant look and I thouhgt it would work great for a formal occasion such as a wedding. I started with a 6"x 6" base of River Rock CS, i then cut A 5.5"X 11" PIECE OF bayou Blue CS sored it at 5.5and cut a triangle off the top squaree of the card. I adhered the square piece of Blue bayou to the River rock Base so the triangle opened to the left. I then cut A PIECE OF 5"X10" Piece of Soft Sky, socred it at 5" and adhered it to the top of the Blue Bayou opened. I stamped Together Forever from that stamp set in Blue Bayou and Versamark and on very Vanilla CS then embossed it with irredescent ice.I placed it on the left bottom corner of the Blue Bayou triangle that was matted with River Rock cardstock and framed the words with a silver frame from the silver hodge podge set. I stamped the monogram from the Lovely Letters Stamp set (in this case an H, with Blu Bayou, versamark, and embossed it with irredecent ice. I punched it out with using the 1 1/4 circle punch, then used the 11/3 circle punch to punch a Blue Bayou circle and using a pop dot popped the monogram up on it. I stamped and embossed the wreath in the together forever stamp set, punched it out , and using pop dots adhered the monogram to it. I adhered the monogram to the right corner of the soft sky portion of the card. I then made a wedding invite for the inside of the soft sky part of the card. I used the computer to type it up and layered it on blue bayou CS layered on River rock. I cut a piece of CS vellum to exactly fit over the very vanilla invitation. I embossed the flower from the stamp set on the upper right corner of the vellum and then placed the vellum the invitaion.
