Wedding Shower Card for Jackie...

One of my daughters is getting married in May.  Her fiance's grandmother hosted a shower for her last weekend and I decided to give them an "organization package" for a gift.  I gave them a filing cabinet, paper shredder, fire/water proof chest and hanging files/file folders.  I immediately thought the card should reflect the gift, so I made this adorable filing cabinet wedding card.  Never thought I'd use all those words in the same sentence, did you?  LOL!

I used a Whisper White card base and a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White embossed with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder (smooth side up).  I used some retired Brushed Silver card stock for the filing cabinet and a bit of the Silver Foil for the handles, lock and bow (Balloon Pop Up Thinlints Dies).  I popped up the bottom drawer to put in the Wedding Wishes (Rose Wonder stamp set) sentiment.  I also added a personal note using lots of organizational puns to the happy couple.

Sometimes, you can let your gift be the inspiration for your card.  Try it out and see what you come up with!
