Weddings are always so much fun. Getting together with extended family and catching up with one another’s lives is important. My husband and I are going to celebrate his cousin’s wedding this upcoming weekend. Time to make a card!
The wedding card uses the “Go Wild” Designer Series Paper stack. It has some really edgy and fun designs. I wanted an eclectic kind of look so I knew this would be perfect. The colors in the DSP were a good jumping off point.
The striped paper that looks like brushstrokes appealed to me for this project. I embossed the edge of the card (standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base in basic black) with the “Happy Hearts” embossing folder, making it just 2 hearts wide. After heat embossing the flourish in black embossing powder, I then glued a small piece of the black 3/8″ striped ribbon right below the flourish. The 3 inch strip of the stripe was glued next to the embossed hearts.
The ampersand heart image was then heat embossed in black embossing powder on a piece of the DSP with the hexagon dot print. I punched it out with the 2 inch circle punch. I framed it out with another striped DSP punched out with the 2 3/8 inch scallop punch.
The small love was stamped in Tip Top Taupe and punched out with the 1/2 inch circle punch. It was raised up on the heart image with a dimensional and the sentiment was also raised up with dimensionals.
To finish off the front of the card, a strip of pearls were added to the black ribbon and a few on the ampersand image.
The inside of the card was stamped with versa mark and heat embossed in black with an accent sentiment done in the tip top taupe. Let me know what you think in the comments section and visit my online store to purchase any of these products used here today!
