Favor bag wedding card

I needed a wedding card and I really didn't want to pay 5 dollars for one!

So, I got out some of my scrapbook paper stash and some cute favor bags to see if I could create something bride-worthy.  The envelope is a favor bag (from Pick Your Plum) with a 3x4 from the happy-go-lucky line by Kasie Fry from Echo Park. I thought the spring colors were perfect for a spring wedding, and they matched the bags and embellishments I had on hand. 

For the inside, I just cut a piece of patterned cardstock, from the same line, to fit into the favor bag. Then I attached a small glassine bag to the front for our gift, which is always cash. Because that's one thing newlyweds always need!  I stuck a sticker flag from the EP paper onto a long toothpick and added some gingham ribbon and a sentiment sticker.  

Ta-da!  A cute wedding card that didn't cost a fortune!  And Kurt and Kate, if you see this before tomorrow, I guess I should congratulate you on having the spare time to go blog hopping the day before your wedding!  :)
