Make your own wedding greeting cards2 enhance a special day
"True love stories never have endings."
Young friends got married today. Making my own wedding card to congratulate them was top on my priority crafting list this week. Lately I have been enjoying the use of my Big Shot more and more, so I got it out to play again and started thinking about how I could make a special project for my friends.
Here's my Stampin' Up! Supply List:
Here's what I did:
First I made my cake image by stamping in Stazon then colouring in the image with my markers. I added some rhinestones to the decorations on top of each cake layer. I edged the image with a marker as well and then I matted it onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
Next I ran some Very Vanilla cardstock through my Big Shot machine with the embossing folder. I trimmed the element to fit on the left hand side of my card front.
Using some Organza ribbon, I tied a piece around the Very Vanilla embossed image and made a bow.
Then I mounted the cake image to the right using Stampin' Dimensionals
Tip: If you wanted to make the embossed image stand out more, you could ink it or turn it over and treat it as I have on this Manhattan Rose element.
One more thing - for wedding greeting cards2 to be truly finished, find a lovely quote to go inside and sign on the back that you are the card maker. I stamped a quote from God's Blessings (NLA) for the inside on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it to the card base.
I made another card as an order for a lady and have featured it on Susan's Saga if you would like to see that. It features its own envelope as it is quite a 3d greeting.
May the wedding lead to a strong and happy marriage, filled with blessings!
