How many COVID weddings have you attended in 2020? If there was ever a time to make a special wedding card, this is the year! I know many brides who have had to change their wedding plans to something smaller and even online. I had a great time making this card to suit someone in particular – a bit rustic, a touch of blush with some elegant lettering.
I started with some paper from the Through the Lens-Wood which I think is discontinued but the new Worn Wood collection is just beautiful and would work also. I lightly sponged the edges of this Florals 1 dies with a light pink ink and the leaves from Florals 2 with different shades of green Distress Oxide Inks. The paper is muted with a sheet of vellum (glued on the corners which will be where the flowers go so that the glue markings will be hidden) so that the words will pop a little more.
I like to have all my pieces cut and colored so they are ready to go. I’ve also learned that having extras is faster going back and preparing them.
I glued all my pieces as shown above, adding some trimmed off berry branches. As you can see, I used some white craft drops for the berries. The center of the flowers I used some light yellow chunky glitter. I did not like the end results much so I went back and added a ring of glue around the yellow glitter to add a green chunky glitter. I love it now!
The flowers frame a simple white sentiment made from different word dies – I do love mixing up these dies to form my own sentiment.
Before I popped it onto my 5 x 7 card base, I did add a bit of olive green matting to my wood piece.
I love how dimensional this card is and that all the colors are a bit muted.
Thank you so much for looking!
