Last week I spend several days down in South West Wales for a friends Wedding. I love making wedding papercrafts, and have made a few sets of wedding stationary over the past couple of years. Luckily for me, I didn’t have to make anything for this wedding, just a pretty card to wish the happy couple a great day.
Their wedding invitation was a bang on trend watercolour effect post-card in a pretty pool colour, so I took inspiration from that to make their wedding card. I do this quite often when making thank you cards, or cards for a specific event. Using colours or themes from the invitation / day / party to make the card.
The Floral Phrases stamp and die bundle is perfect for weddings; and would make beautiful invitations. If you grab the bundle (rather than the stamps and dies separately) you save 10%. I’m loving the HUGE selection of bundles in this years catalogue, there are just so many great chances to bundle and save!
The card was a little tricky to work out, I will try and get some proper measurements for you and maybe do a video in the next few weeks, but I had to make this particular card in a bit of a hurry so didn’t get the chance to write it down! It uses half a sheet of A4 (A4 cut length-ways). The die pack includes 3 dies, the two different sizes of details floral dies and one edge piece. I used the edge to cut off either end of the sheet of A4, and the cut the detailed dies – the larger one at one end and the shorter piece at the other.
The it was a simple case of scoring the card just underneath each die cut piece to form the card. The Whisper White piece of card stock required a little bit of trimming to get it to fit, but like I said, I will get the measurements and hopefully a video sorted for you in the coming weeks.
I added a sentiment using the 1-1/4″ and 1 3/8″ circle dies, with a hole punched at the top for a piece of bakers twine. After I tied the bow I did stick this to the top of the punched circles with a glue dot as it wanted to move around too much for my liking!
The sentiment inside is taken from the Floral Phrases stamp set (as was the outer sentiment), stamped in Pool Party to match the rest of the card.
What is your favourite type of card to make? I would love to know, let me know in the comments section below
