Wedding Wishes

My Dad is attending the wedding reception of the daughter of an old family friend in a couple of weeks and he asked me to make him a card for the happy couple.  If you know my Dad at all, you know that he definitely has a sense of humor.  He asked me to make a funny card for him - this is it!

I love how the image turned out each character was printed, colored and cut out 3 times and then pieces were layered together (you can see this best in his hair and vest).  Kind of a cool technique, but wow - time consuming!  I also learned that it is not a good idea to put an image that has something attached with a pop up glue dot (man was I afraid I was going to have to start all over when it squished and stuck to the cutting mat!!).

Here's some close ups of the details:
