Hearts Card Design - Art Every Day #1

On November 5th, my father-in-law is getting married.  We are thrilled for him and his bride.
I find it so heart warming that these two found each other.  Both are in their 70's, both lost their spouses about 7 years ago.  Here's to you, John and Margaret!!

I won't bore you with the many, many designs I went through trying to create the perfect card.  Of course, I still don't feel like it's perfect, but the wedding is soon, and hubby likes it, so it's a go!

I created the same card in color and in Black and White, we both liked the colored version, but it didn't print well, (I colored it with Photoshop, and we need to get some ink for our printer.), and we thought the Black and White was classier so we went with that.  Here's both:
Two Hearts - Black and White

Two Hearts - Color

Feedback is always encouraged and appreciated.

  1. Congratulations to the happy couple! I like the colored one, too. Too bad your printer didn't work, but black and white is more traditional, I guess. Looks nice either way. :)

  2. Love the dimension you create with color and shading - lovely sentiment as well - thanks for sharing!

  3. I love the vibrant colors, but black and white is a wonderful choice for a wedding!

    Congratulations to the happy couple :)


  4. I really like all the doodles you used to create these hearts. The b/w one will be the perfect wedding card.

  5. love the black and white one! So classy looking.

  6. Thank you all!
    We're sending the B&W. However, I think I'm going to take the color version to a printing place (like Kinko's or something) and have them print it, I'd like to see it on paper.



OH, how exciting! You're leaving a comment!
I love comments, it's like that special little card you get in the mail you didn't expect!
Thank you!!!
