I usually give a gift card to wherever the couple is registered for a wedding gift, so I love to make the wedding card that holds that gift. Today I am using stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry -- one block sentiment and three tiny peg stamps to create the floral sprays. The peg stamps are about the size of my little fingernail or smaller, and I love creating different designs each time I use them.
You can see in the photos above some of the steps, and my practice sheet for stamping. I used various inks from my collection, and stamped on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. My card is a horizontal standard A2 size. Everything is held together with Scor-Tape.
I cut an oval for my wedding "wreath." The first stamping step was the block LOVE, and then I added little flowers and leaves in a rather haphazardly planned way to create the floral sprays. For embellishment, I added ruffled ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon for a wedding garter look, and some pearls throughout the spray and around the "O", because they are elegant, and also my favorite! Can you find them all? There are 13!
I love being able to personalize each wedding card with the couple's colors, or something special just for them. It's much nicer than a store bought card - or a cheap gift card holder from Target!
I'm so glad you stopped by today! Next up is Teri Wilson. You are sure to love what she has to show you!
