Wedding Card no. #5

Happy Friday!!! :o)

Today I want to share with you a CAS (clean and simple), tri-fold Wedding Card I made last month. I made it for my good friend who needed a wedding card for her family member. The wedding was three weeks ago. Congratulations to a couple!!! :o)


I used BEAUTIFUL Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp. This is my fifth take on this stamp. If you like, you can find my previous cards using this image hereherehere and here.


How I made the card...

First I worked on a card base. I made two white top folded card bases, both same size (4" x 5 3/4"). I wrote couple's names and wedding date on my computer in MS Word (font: Palace Script) and printed it on one card base. I trimmed the card base a bit and glued two card bases together, to get tri-fold card.

Then I stamped the image on a watercolor paper and colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black marker.

I stamped another image on a white cardstock paper panel, slightly smaller than the card base, colored bouquet "green parts" with green markers and rest of the image with a grey marker. I glued the panel on the card base.

Then I softened the watercolored image with a stylus ball on a soft working mat, which curled the image a bit, and glued the image over the grey colored one. This added a bit of dimension to the image.


Lastly I made an envelope from a vellum paper, slightly larger than a card base. First I stamped elegant swirls on the vellum paper, using a Distress Ink Picket Fence. I left it dry for couple hours. When the ink was dry, I cut the paper to a desirable size and made an envelope using MS scoring board.

Card measurements: 101 mm x 146 mm (4" x 5 3/4")
