Wedding Card In A Bag
Have you ever given a wedding card in a bag? I thought I would create something different for an up coming wedding.
This year, Stampin’ Up! introduced the Glassine Sheets. Glassine sheets are translucent with a wax paper-like feeling. They are resistant to grease, air and water, which makes them an excellent choice for paper crafting.
This was my first time using the glassine sheets to create a project. I was quite pleased that the sheets were easy to work with.
Stamps: For the New Two.
Ink/Markers: Stazon Black, Watermelon, Soft Sky, Old Olive.
Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand, 2015-17 In Color DSP Stack (watermelon floral), Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, White Vellum Cardstock, Gold Foil, Glassine Sheets.
Accessories: Big Shot, Lovely Lace Embossing Folder, Gift Card Envelope & Trim Thinlits, Mini Treat Bag Thinlit, Lots of Labels Thinlits, Gold Metallic Thread, Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, Sahara Sand 7/8” Lace Trim, 1/8” Gold Trim, Mini Metallic Clothespins.
The wedding card in a bag was die cut using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit and then constructed normally. For adhesive, I used Mini-Glue Dots. After the treat bag/envelope was together, I embossed the whole thing with the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder.
How did I do the wedding card in a bag once I had the bag together.
I placed a piece of Sahara Sand card stock in the wedding card bag to write a message to the happy couple. This also helps to make the bag less transparent. The bag is wrapped with a piece of Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon and Sahara Sand Lace Trim.
To make the tag, a piece of the Watermelon flowered designer paper from the 2015-17 In Color Designer Paper Stack was die cut with the Lots of Labels Thinlits and squared off at the bottom. A piece of Fancy Foil Velum (gold hearts) paper was die cut the same size. The sentiment, flowers and leaves were stamped in Black Stazon ink. The flowers were coloured with Soft Sky and Calypso Coral markers and the leaves coloured with Old Olive markers. These were fussy cut and placed onto the tag. A Gold Foil heart was die cut with the heart from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit. Finally, a length of the Gold Metallic Thread was looped and placed behind the heart.
The gift card holder was made using the same DSP as the tag and cut with the Gift Card Envelope & Trim Thinlits. This can be tucked into the wedding card in a bag and the bag held closed with the Mini Metallic Clothespin.
Would you make a Wedding card in a bag as a gift and card for a couple that are getting married? For a more traditional wedding card, see this POST.
