Wedding card and gift

I went to a cousin's wedding a couple of weeks ago.  I could tell from the invitation they were going for a country theme.  There was an image of a mason jar with a daisy in it so I lifted the idea for her card.  The jar is an image from the Silhouette store and I put the inside in vellum.

The wedding was a perfect blend of theme and tradition.  The bride wore a traditional but not fussy ivory gown. The bridesmaids wore red satin knee length dresses paired with cowboy boots.  They carried a mason jar with a lit candle inside and a sprig of greenery and a pine cone on the outside.  The groomsmen had on red shirts, ties and black pants and probably boots though I didn't notice.  The Christmas tree covered with Chrismons and one altar arrangement were her flowers.  The programs were printed on kraft paper and reminded me of a placard for a old country store with each item typed into a box in varying fonts. We didn't go to the reception as it was quite a drive away but I'm sure it was also tasteful and fun.  I do love a unique take on a traditional wedding.

Using the colors from the invitation as a cue, I did this canvas for them as a gift.

They can add their own wedding photo.

Congratulations, Samantha and Dustin!  We wish you much happiness.
