Customized Wedding Card
A couple of weeks ago I received a request to design and create a customized wedding card. Needless to say, I felt delighted, honoured and a bit apprehensive. It’s one thing to design a card for a class or as a gift, it’s entirely different to design a card for someone else. The ask was to design a card that would fit into a custom designed cheque folder. So that is what I set out to do.
The colors were to be Fresh Fig and Sweet Sugar Plum with a touch of gold filigree.
Stamps: Flourishing Phrases.
Ink/Marker: Fresh Fig.
Paper: Whisper White, Fresh Fig, Sweet Sugarplum, Gold Foil.
Accessories: Big Shot, Layering Circles Framelits, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, So Detailed Thinlits Dies, Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Envelope Punch Board, Metallic Enamel Shapes, Adhesive Sheets.
The measurements for the card and holder are custom. I measured a cheque book and then made adjustments for the folder. A cheque folder is lower in the front than the back, has rounded corners punched with the envelope punch board. The folder is attached on 2 sides: along the bottom and one side.
To provide the touches of gold, die cut Gold Foil paper with the So Detailed Thinlit and attach to the Sweet Sugarplum layer
Die cut “congrats” from Fresh Fig cardstock and attach above the Gold filigree.
Now onto the card.
- The card base is Whisper White cardstock with Fresh Fig cardstock and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock layers.
- Emboss the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock with the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder or something similar.
- Attach the Adhesive Sheet to the GOld Foil. Create the entwined hearts from Gold Foil Paper using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. Use your Paper Snipes to slice one heart and insert the other heart around the slit.
- Attach the hearts to the card front. Easy peasy with the Adhesive Sheets.
Finally, stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock, die cut with the Layered Circle Framelits, sponge the circle with Fresh Fig ink and layer on a Fresh Fig circle.
