This is another wedding card for my cousin. My grandmother asked for a handmade card that was pretty but not sappy. So I used the wedding invite as inspiration for this card.
Size: Horizontal side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a pink panel cut slightly smaller than an A2 card front. Using a circle die and a pencil, I lightly traced a circle on the card stock. Then I went through my stamp stash looking for any stamps that reminded me of the wedding invite. I found a bunch of dotted swirly stamps. Using Versa Mark ink and gold heat embossing powder, I created a design on my panel. I added some ink blending to the edges of the panel with Distress Inks to add interest.
Originally, this was intended to be a vertical card, but I could not find/create a Congratulations sentiment that would fit in my circle. So I turned the panel on its side. I stamped Congratulations on a strip of velum in Versa Fine black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added the gold hearts to the circle to fill in space.
Before adhering all of the elements together, I dipped the edges of the pink panel and the velum strip in Versa Mark ink and added some gold embossing powder. I love the way this turned out.
Lastly, I wrapped the velum strip around the pink panel and adhered everything to the white card base.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Science of Love, Critters in Costume, Stinkin’ Cute, Sally’s ABCs, Happily Ever After
Ink: Versa Fine
Distress Inks in Tattered Rose and Antique Linen
Hope you enjoyed the card
