I was asked by the school Principal if I would make a wedding card for one of the teachers. I also needed it to be bigger than my usual cards so that all the staff could sign it.
So I went searching for some challenges to give me some inspiration. I have only made one or two wedding cards and I don’t have many stamp sets that are appropriate for a wedding either, so I was a little stressed.
I found a fantastic sketch at Mojo Monday that I thought would work well with a larger card (my card is actually one A4 sheet folded in half). I’m sure I’ll be using this sketch again, it’s a beauty!
I also found a “new to me” challenge site called The Lollipop Ladies and their challenge is Tiramisu with the additional challenge of layers. I thought they would be lovely colours for a wedding card (and just a little different without being too different). I used shimmery white, vanilla, crumb cake and a dash of espresso for the colours and of course there are lots of layers too.
And this is what I came up with:
The only set I have for a wedding card really is an oldie (but one of my favourites), Always. I clear embossed the heart onto shimmery white with crumbcake ink and cut it out and then stamped the hearts again onto vanilla and used white embossing powder. I cut these hearts out smaller so that there was the embossed crumbcake dots showing around the outside.
I used the double bow tutorial by Ann Schach again too, but it’s a triple instead of double this time and I decided not to crumple the ribbon on this one. I also dug out an old sentiment stamp (that I love and have had in my collection for years) and stamped it with espresso.
Stamps : Always, Happily ever after (Artee)
Card : shimmery white, vanilla, crumb cake
Ink : espresso, crumb cake, versamark
Other : big shot, polka dot ef, finial press ef, clear embossing powder, white embossing powder, pearls, crumb cake seam binding
Hopefully all the staff, but especially the bride-to-be, will like what I created.
