Hiro and Tomomi's Wedding Card

If anyone still remembers Simply Sentiments magazine, one of the features that I loved the most was 'The Last Card' which appeared on the last page of the magazine and talked about the story behind the cards we create. I love hearing stories, especially stories that inspire us to make the cards we do.

So here's the story behind this wedding card, made for a couple in Japan. Hiro was a foreign student my mom had staying with her a few years ago. He fell in love with Canada during his year here and has been back several times since. He recently got married and in August was bringing his bride to Canada for their honeymoon. Unfortunately, a typhoon made it impossible for them to get out of Japan and they had to cancel the trip. This is their wedding card.

Paper is SEI, Christmas Mint, bird is from Prima and glitter die cut is from Making Memories.

Sad that they didn't get their honeymoon, we're all hoping they come next year so we can meet the bride.

Hope you're having a great weekend,
