Three Weddings and

Looks like we are in for a busy 6 weeks. Three family weddings to attend in that time period. These day's it is most practical to give a gift card or just cold hard cash. I decided I would just bite into the task of making the cards. Three makes it somehow more worthwhile for me.

 I decided I would bite the cardmaking conundrum and just do it. My thought process was to keep it all one colorless {white} theme. 

I had a look at the stash and went through all my cuttlebug folders and die. This is what I did:
I started with premade blank envelopes and cards
I decorated the envelop to give it that extra something

 I ran the front page of the card through with this sheet music emboss plate.
You can buy a doily, or cut one out of vellum or tissue for a sheer look
then I cut butterfly's from a piece of pearl paper. {Check the gorgeous selection in store}
I played around with the butterfly placement a bit
 Dug through the stash for more white bits
 If you know your brides colors you could add in a bit of their colors for ribbon, or string trim
You could cut the butterfly's in their colors 
Here is the finished set of three.
They will do well enough I think. These day's most couples need cash more than they need a gift, so on the inside cover I will secure the $$$.
 How much do you give as a gift?
They are all nieces so very close family.

These are gorgeous! And doesn't it always seem like everyone gets married at the same time? Like babies, they seem to happen in waves :) I love the doilies & the shimmery butterflies!
As for money, it seems like the standard at the moment is $100 if you can afford it. With three that close together though...yikes!
