365 #65 A Wedding Card

This card is a special request. Friends of ours are going to a wedding and asked me to make their card, so here it is! The image of the couple is from the book The Columbian Speaker For Boys and Girls, 1901. The text is from The Mother Tongue, also 1901.

I've been making xerox copies of my favorite cards. This will be the first time that someone receives the copy, rather than the original. As those of you who have received cards know, the originals aren't very polished. There are edges and texture and glue smudges sometimes. The copies always thrill me for their smooth, cohesive wholeness.
