Specialised Wedding Card

It has been a while since I last posted a blog, so I thought I best get on it and post some of my recent creations but some I am very proud of! A friend of mine asked if I could create a wedding card for her to give to her sister in law and her husband, which I was only extremely happy to do.

I am a big lover of the colours ‘Night of Navy and Whisper White’ together they create a very sophisticated look when used along with the retired Floral Boutique DSP. The card is C6 size with the measurements as follows in Night of Navy

  • length- 27.8cm
  • width- 16cm
  • centrefold- 10.9- 11cm
  • zig zag indent fold- 6cm, 4cm, 2cm

Using the Night of Navy cardstock as the base (following above measurements) I also have trimmed an extra piece of Night of Navy which measures

  • length- 12cm
  • width-5cm

(an extra piece of Night of Navy was used with the Square Framelits, creating the front of the card.

I have also taken advantage of using the Vellum pearl coloured paper trimmed slightly larger then the Night of Navy.

  • length- 12.5cm
  • width- 5.5cm

Using Whisper White cardstock for the backing and for the inside of the card which have the following measurements (in total you will require 2 of these pieces).

  • length- 15.7cm
  • width- 10.7cm

also for the front zig zag section of the card I Whisper White was used measuring

  • length-15.7cm
  • width-1.5cm

I have also used whisper white card stock to create an extra pop out section (stuck on to the inner first crease of the Night of Navy cardstock. the measurements for this is

  • length- 11.5cm
  • width-9.5cm

(I wrote a poem which I specifically had printed just on A4 printer paper and just cut the image to size.)

For the front of the card I used the Square layering framelits as well as with the Lovely Lace embossing folder on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, measurements below.

  • length 11.5cm
  • width-4.5cm

The Floral Boutique DSP used  for the front of the card measures

  • length-10.3cm
  • width-15.3cm

The  front zig zag section is

  • length-10.3cm
  • width-1.2cm

whilst the inner DSP section of the card comes in at

  • Length-11cm
  • width-9cm

To complete the finishing product I have used the silver embossing powder, versamark ink pad, heating tool, falling for you stamp set along with a couple of non Stampin’ Up! products- white see through ribbon and a pearl diamante.
