Lace Covered Wedding

Last year I made wedding invitations for our neighbors daughter and each one was completely covered in lace - I glued a liner inside to cover up the edges - needless to say, it was a big job, but she was delighted with them!  For this I used one of the card bases that I had leftover.  I cut out an embossed heart free hand - but if you find that tricky you can always google a heart in images (or any object for that matter, I've done a guitar, boat, and various other things) and use the outline as a template.  The ribbon here was on a Christmas present and I used a vintage button, which was in a jar of them which  I bought at St. Georges Saturday morning market in Belfast city center (or "centre" for my U.K. readers!)
I entered this in Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It challenge because it was about using stickers - I stuck the sentiment sticker onto cardstock so that it could be popped up.
Supplies include:
Lace
Papermill Shop cream linen cardstock
Vintage button
Ribbon,
Sizzix plaid embossing folder
Making Memories Definitions sticker
