Today we went to a wedding. It was a really lovely service and special to be a part of it. This was for friends of Josh’s and he was one of the Groomsmen. He looked pretty swish if you ask me but I can say that because I am his mum. 🙂
We managed to grab a family snap. It is not often that we are all together. I don’t often share family stuff here but today I will….. 🙂
Anyway, you didn’t come here to see family snaps you want to see crafty projects. I wanted to share the Wedding card I made. Now I have known about this wedding for months as you do but I just didn’t know how to go about this card. The Invitation had Ombre blue stripes so I considered working something in with that but I ended up with this. Hope the Bride and Groom like it.
I went with Dapper Denim card base and Soft Sky mat. On the White card I stamped the sentiment from Rose Wonder. If you can see closely at the bottom is a new Embossing Folder from the Upcoming Occasions Catalogue. I broke it out of it’s package just for this! This is the ‘Falling Petals’ Textured Impressions Folder. They look like falling hearts. Just a couple of Tips with this folder: 1) When you emboss you might get little marks or the “hearts” squished looking. I added a piece of scrap paper in the folder on top of the card when I embossed it which prevented this. 2) This embossing folder covers the full card but I didn’t want all the card covered only to emboss just the bottom edge. This was hard to do because of the position of the hearts. So I cut a separate small strip of Whisper White card the width of the full white card piece and embossed just the strip. Then I adhered that piece straight on to the card. You wouldn’t even know!
The ribbon used is not Stampin’ Up! The larger swirly hearts are cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. I cut one in Dapper Denim and one in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The little sparkly heart is a heart punched from the 2-Step Owl Punch in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. It adds a little sparkle.
This is the inside of the card.
Mmm? Shame the lighting isn’t great. The weather has been a bit funny. Hope you get the idea anyway.
This sentiment is also from Rose Wonder set. I thought it needed something else to the inside so I punched some little hearts from the 2-Step Owl Punch in Dapper Denim and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
Thanks for visiting today.
