My mother was invited to a wedding and the grooms didn't want any presents but told everyone that they like beautiful cards. My mother wanted me to make a large card that she could place some money into it and she wanted the card to be able to stand out as a present as well as a card.
I asked her to contact the grooms and ask them what their favorite color was. So with blue and purple as my guide I started on this card. I wanted the card to be masculine but at the same time with a little feminine touch.
I struggled a bit with the flowers but decided on wanting to have a single big flower as a focus with the smaller ones around.
When you open up the card you can lift up the first page and place money or other small items in there.
