When I saw today's Ways to Use It challenge was to use stickers, I thought I'd have to skip it since I wasn't aware of owning any and went on to make my wedding card. Then I remembered these definition sentiments and checked them out, and they are stickers. I stuck mine onto a piece of cardstock so that I could pop it up on an embossed heart, which is cut free hand. If you find that tricky you can google a heart (or any object) in images, and use the outline for a template. Last year I did wedding invitations for our neighbor and she wanted lace covered, and this is one of the card bases that was left over. What a job, each card had lace stretched over it and glued on the inside, so they had to have a liner glued in to cover up the edges. I added some ribbon which was wrapped around a Christmas present and a vintage button - got a jar of them in the St. Georges Market in Belfast's city center.

Bridget, this is the most romantic and frilly wedding card I've seen in a long time. Fantastic!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

what a lovely wedding card Bridget! what a project to make invitations in this design!!! Love the lace around the card (looks just like the lace I used on my wedding dress that I made myself many years ago!) that plaid embossed heart looks wonderful with the ribbon and button too!
