Fizzy Congratulations

For a while I've wanted to make a wedding card which brings in the tradition of tying tins to the wedding car.

I remember having a few sips of coca cola as a kid and really disliking it, with the result that to this day I've never touched it again. But everyone else in the house likes it and I have to say I do like the coca cola cans, lol! Anyway for this card I printed off some tiny images of the cans, applied Glossy Accents and tied them to the wedding car with thread. The sentiment was embossed and I just did a slight bit of colouring on the car.

To personalise the card I printed off initials, stamped the registration plate around them and cut the plate out to adhere to the car. The initials I used are my hubby's and mine. I can't believe we'll be married 18 years this year! So the saying is true, time flies by when you're having fun!

So glad you are having fun - and sharing it with us, Heather. This is so creative! I've actually never seen cans tied to a wedding car, but I hear that it is done. Love your little cans and your sweet personalization. Happy 18 (we are at 15)!

Hi Heather, Love your cute Wedding Card, so clever to use the coke cans. I don't like coke in fact I'm not a fizzy drink person, much prefer elder flower presse!!
