I don’t know how many times I’ve started a blog post by apologising for the length of time it’s been since I last posted, but here I go again! Life just gets busy!
Today I wanted to show you some wedding cards I made for a dear friend’s wedding a few months ago. This is a snippet of their wedding invitation, which inspired me to make not one, but three cards for their wedding!
I tried to use their design as inspiration, and the colours they chose were uncannily similar to Stampin’ Up!’s Night of Navy and Very Vanilla.
Design one – wedding gate fold card
(I used my sponge daubers and pearls to add colour and sparkles to the embossed flowers)
(I love this teeny tiny sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set)
Design two – embossed wedding card
This card actually used a Christmas embossing folder tipped on its side. You’d have to look very closely to see the Christmas details at what should be the top! Again, some sponging and pearl details set it off.
Design three – wedding easel shaker card
This was my son’s favourite! He loved the heart shaped cup and shaking the card to make a sound with all the little cut out hearts with the small heart punch.
I loved them all, but ended up using the gate fold card as my card to the happy couple. My son insisted on the shaker card being from him, and my parents ended up using the other card. So none of them went to waste!
Please let me know if you’d like instructions for any of these cards and I can post the dimensions.
Which one was your favourite?
