Wedding Cards

Make Wedding Cards Unique for the Bride and Groom

While many everyday cards seem to be discarded by the recipient, people often seem to keep their wedding cards (and also their baby cards!) I have seen scrapbooks made up entirely of wedding day memorabilia, including every card given the couple by their family and friends.They like to keep handmade or printed wedding invitations, thank you cards, and just about everything else created for their special day.

If you live in a remote area or have limited access to shops, buying a special greeting can be doubly hard.So being able to customise a card for a wedding day is extra special indeed! Aren't you glad your craft supplies can provide you with what you need to make a truly unique card? I really enjoy being able to do this.

I've seen lots of repeat cards in those memento albums as well, having lived in remote areas a lot of years myself. Sometimes the choice is not as large as we would like or there may be one card that makes all guests think of the happy couple, so many people wind up buying just the one style of card. By making your own, you will be sure no one at all will be buying that same card!

Perhaps you already make wedding cards, invitations, save-the-date cards, thank you notes and order of service booklets. I hope you will feel free to inspire us with your work and maybe even share a wedding story or two by uploading some examples using the form at the bottom of this page.

The card with the porcupines was made for a couple who seemed like the perfect pair, and who only had eyes for each other! They both love animals and I used the colours I knew they would be choosing as a theme for their special day.

The card I made shown below was to suit a wedding where the bride and groom arrived separately in vintage cars. The married couple also left in a vintage car together!

Wedding Cards

I went to a family wedding where I took great delight in thinking about the bride and groom and in choosing new paper, stamped images and embellishments I thought they would like. I took time to add lots of little details like the gilding of the edges of my layers, doodling, embossing the stamped image and adding ribbon.

I used a new collection of papers that had just come out (they were made by Stampin' Up!). And adding the little pearls just seemed so right. I even customised my hand made envelope by lining it with matching paper and writing the bride and groom's names in my best hand written, flourishing, illuminated font with my markers.

I wrote exactly what I wanted to write inside my card as well, because I could :)

Of course, I also enjoyed myself crafting this card, but let's not tell the bride and groom there were any other reasons for me to sit down at my craft desk.

I made sure I lined the envelope with the same designer series paper I used on the card front in the project shown below.

Wedding Cards

You can make your card special in many, many ways. Try the following, for instance:

  • tailoring your card to the wedding colours, themes, and settings.
  • Taking the time to find the perfect quote for the inside greeting.
  • Adding pieces of wedding dress fabric or lace or pressed flowers that you know will be in the bride's bouquet.
  • If the event is to be formal, you can make your card in a formal style. If it is a less formal occasion, then you can make a casual or even a funny card.
  • You can add photos to your cards perhaps using the Easel card design,

There are just so many good reasons to make wedding cards and just as many ways to make them unique.

If you make your own wedding greetings, I hope you will add a picture and maybe a story about them here. I would love to see your own approach to helping to make a special day even more memorable and unique.

Some more examples of wedding cards I have made. The first card was made with a die cut to add texture, and I knew the colour scheme for this wedding also.

The next card I made using vellum to soften the flower images I stamped directly on the card. This was for a more formal wedding and I knew the bride adored gold. See the little punched hearts I added to the envelope? They coordinated with the gold embossed hearts on the vellum.
