A wedding card using Baroque Motifs

I have a small basket of cards for sale on my desk at work. I don't sell many, but they are mainly class samples and extras anyway. As I work with mostly men, as you can imagine, there is not alot of action at the card basket.... guess I need to make more "I'm sorry I did that" or "wanna fool around" cards, lol! The best thing that happens from having this box there is that it will promote the "how do you do this" converatoion or "do you have any ____ cards". This happened the other day when one of the guys was looking for a wedding card and asked if I could make him a really big card. He wanted bigger, but I told him it would be tough to find an envelope for as large as he wanted. This is a full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper that opens in the middle. I think it's called a gate fold card with a belly band made from vellum to hold it closed. The 2nd picture shows the inside of the card. I made another one in different colors that I'll post after I send it out. Thanks for stopping in today!
