Small Card for the Bride

Welcome to an extended Blog addition from TallJourneys,

When the wedding season is upon us (which lets face it, can be all year round) it is always a nice touch to give something other then money for the wishing well or a gift that sometimes the couple getting married already have.

Another idea (along with a gift) is a hand made card or gift (Check out Kelly Kent at https://mypapercraftjourney.com/ – look her up on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest for those who haven’t seen her creations yet! Kelly gifted some handmade thank you cards and a variety of things for a bride and groom.

In addition to wedding cards for the bride and groom as a couple, I created a small 3in x 4in card specifically for the bride (from the matron of honour) in the colours of the Bridesmaids dresses.

For the structure of the card I have used whisper white card stock x 3 of the same size pieces measuring.

  • length-9.6cm
  • width-7.3cm

One of the whisper white pieces I ran through the big shot using the decorative dots embossing folder (now retired).

As the brides chosen colours for her wedding were, sky blue, gold and white I was able to incorporate all of these with the gold emboss powder, ribbons (purchased through spotlight) and a pearl diamante (non stampin’ up). I also have used the circle stitched framelits for the front sentiment (I have also used the Blushing Bride Ink pad) with the Falling for you Stamp Set.

I had a small collection of doilies from a retired Stampin Up pack with I decided to make use of to make the wedding dress and found the following tutorial on pinterest- Angela Maryland from paperpaws.blogspot.com.au

The inside of the card I have used the versamark stamp pad, gold emboss powder and the heat tool with the sentiment from the ‘Flourishing Phrases’ stamp set.

There are many different ideas that can be personally designed to suit any celebration, this is just but one idea.
