A Wedding Card for Little Red Wagon #686

Time for another Little Red Wagon challenge, with Chrissy as our hostess this week. She's chosen 'New Beginnings' as our theme. This would be perfect for a New Year's card, but it could also be for a new baby, a new job, a new home...or as in my case a wedding. Click on over to see what the other girlfriends have come up with and link up your own 'New Beginnings' project!

This was a last minute card and I needed to do it quickly – no-brand ragged edge dies to the rescue! Since I use these dies so often (e.g. this mooning leprechaun St. Patty's card) and really do like them, I thought I might share with you how you can find them. I found them again on Amazon France where I purchased them, but like everything else lately they've gone up in price. I paid €3.20 in  November 2020, the least expensive I see now is €9.99.  Amazon USA is better; I see them there for $5.99. I prefer not to link up to Amazon, goodness knows they've got enough business without me helping them out, but if you're interested, search by 'Vintage Torn Rectangle Frame Stitched Cutting Dies' and you'll find them at various prices. 

The digi is a Papercrafter magazine wedding digi freebie. Paper is from Mode & Travaux magazine's Noël 2020 paper issue. Embellishments are a wooden flower and pearl. Amelie font was used for the sentiment.

  1. I am smitten with that sweet wedded freebie couple! Love those jagged-edged dies too. The colour scheme is fabulous as well. I found the dies on Amazon Canada for $5.99 Canadian with an additional $4 for shipping. Do I thank you for being an enabler or scowl toward France?! :)
