Just back from a most amazing weekend in New Orleans for my good friend Katherine's wedding. This is the card that I made for her, that uses fabrics that are in the quilt that I'm making for her. I attached the rectangles to the card using Mod Podge, let them dry, then stitched around each layer. I would up cutting out the cake, and Mod Podging it to a new card so that it's slightly lifted off. I am really pleased with how it came out.
We ate really well—fried oyster po'boys, cafe au lait, gumbo (seafood and chicken andouille), sugar coated beignets, eggs sardou—and I totally enjoyed bridesmaiding on Saturday and helping Katherine get ready for the ceremony (which included activities like embroidering the bag that held the glass for the Jewish ceremony and holding a large mirror as she had her hair done), and dancing for hours at the reception. It was completely Katherine and Jonathan, and also completely New Orleans. I will share pictures once I have them ready!
