I am still using the gorgeous Sweet Soiree Specialty paper, and on a mission to #usethatpaper. You don’t have to store this precious paper. It is too lovely NOT to use.
Today it is wedding cards. The beautiful paper which is what I think are wedding cakes on it makes very quick, special cards.
You don’t need a lot with this gorgeous paper. I added a Silver Foil mat under the paper, a sentiment, some bling and either some Silver Thread or Silver ribbon. The sentiment for the one at the top is from Floral Phrases. The sentiment on the card below is from Balloon Celebrations.
I hope you like these cards and please, #usethatpaper.
Thanks for stopping by.
Last week I had a big week making wedding cards. I had 8 to make all up. Two were for a family wedding last week and one for a family friend and then Josh has 5 weddings coming up. Yes, 5!
So I thought I would share them with you. The lighting is not great for these. Sorry but I hope it gives you a good idea.
This first one uses the retired Bundle of Love DSP. I had a small piece left which I thought would work a treat AND one last little embellishment. The card base is Sahara Sand. The sentiment is from Rose Wonder. The ribbon is the Very Vanilla Satin ribbon retired also. I cut a leaf spray in Sahara Sand and in Vellum. This was for our nephew’s wedding.
This one I made for my Mother In Law to give our nephew (her grandson) as she was unwell to make a card. The hearts are from Sunshine Wishes cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Rich Razzleberry card. The sentiment and the little swirly flourishes are from Floral Phrases. The main colour is Rich Razzleberry and I used some Rich Razzleberry Cotton ribbon (retired).
I made a couple of these ones below in Sweet Sugarplum using Sunshine Wishes and Floral Phrases again. This time the sentiment is from Rose Wonder. I have used the retired Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.
These next 2 I made the same. I made 2 in Island Indigo and 2 in Crumb Cake. These cards were inspired by an idea on Pinterest.
To create this card:
I cut the flower (from the Rose Garden Thinlits) from the Whisper White card and then embossed it with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This piece was adhered to the card mat (Crumb Cake or Island Indigo. Then I adhered the Die cut flower on to the card and adhered the whole piece to the Thick Whisper White card base. I cut a leaf spray from Crumb Cake (or Island Indigo) and also with Vellum. The sentiment is from Rose Wonder set. On these I added a little bow with either the White Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread.
Perhaps Linen Thread is not considered very elegant for weddings but based on a number of the invitations that Josh has received they are quite often very rustic in the crumb cake colour or with doilies and/or tied up with twine. So I think these were well suited.
Hope they inspire you for your next wedding cards. These will get me by for a couple of months!!
Have a great day,
Have you seen the new Floral Phrases Stamps and the Detailed Floral Thinlits in the Catalogue? They are just so gorgeous. It makes elegant cards so easily. I had a play with them yesterday and thought I would show you my creations.
These cards were inspired by 2 I had seen on a Facebook group I am on. I love the new Dapper Denim Incolor too. It just adds to the elegance. 🙂
The Detailed Floral Thinlits cut so easily. I then placed it on the Whisper White card mat so I could line it up to stamp on the white card. Then I could adhere it in place with the Fine Tip Glue and then to the Dapper Denim Card base. The stamped strip is in Sahara Sand. The butterfly was stamped in Dapper Denim and is from the Papillion Potpourri set.
The Rhinestones add a little sparkle. I debated on whether to tie around some White Baker’s Twine but decided against it. When it was all stuck together though I realised that I should have done it and kept coming back to it. In the end I added a small twine bow.
This second card was in Dapper Denim too. This time I stamped the floral image and then added the “spots” in the Crumb Cake. I wanted to keep the sentiment simple so I stamped the floral border in Crumb Cake on a piece of card strip and then stamped the greeting over the top. This time I added some Pearls for glamour. I sponged the edge of the card too which softens it.
Here is the stamp set and the Thinlits if you haven’t noticed them before. They are available to order from my store.
