Today, I’m am sharing two cards designed for a wedding.
It goes without saying that this year has been a socially terrible year. Many weddings have been postponed or cancelled so far. My sister in laws’s brothers wedding ended up being delayed twice and they eventually decided upon a small ceremony which ended up being delayed further due to the second lockdown (or Lockdown 2.0 as my husband calls it!) So they’ve managed to arrange a small ceremony - a feat nearly impossible in Indian weddings - post-lockdown so his sister can attend.
I was asked to make a couple of cards to mark the occasion.
The first is a card made using the Forever Greenery designer series paper. It’s wonderfully eye catching. I cut the piece into four quarters and then cut each quarter diagonally. The pieces were adhered onto a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock.
Using Versamark and Copper Embossing Powder, I heat embossed the area where I expected to place the sentiment. (Tip: to do this, lightly smudge the Versamark ink pad in the areas you intend to emboss - you can also brush off the area where there is too much embossing powder before heat setting it.) A stamparatus is handy for this.
I stamped a message in Pear Pizazz from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and then re-stamped and heat embossed the word “Happiness” using Versamark and Copper Embossing powder. I die cut this using the Stitched Shapes dies and heat embossed the edges before placing it onto the card using dimensionals and then embellished it with an Old Olive ribbon and Elegant Facetted Gems.
For the second card I used a piece of Artistry Blooms DSP and Forever Gold Laser Cut paper adhered into Magenta Madness cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set. I heat embossed and then die cut it using the Tasteful Labels dies. I placed some Magenta Madness ribbon before adhering the sentiment with dimensionals and embellished using Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
