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.
Good morning all. Angela here as a guest designer. For today’s tutorial I have put together a fairly straightforward wedding card using Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s new Forget Me Not die set in keeping with the traditional “something blue” for the bride, along with several other of my favourite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Hi there, Artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a simple, elegant version of Always & Forever. This is perfect for a guy for Valentine’s Day, but by changing the colour of the gently sponged ink, you can pink it right up! By adding dimension to each layer, the result is a super special card for a super special person. Wouldn’t this make a stunning wedding or anniversary card?
This card is so simple to make. It took me longer to photograph it than to make it. And the photo really doesn’t do it justice!
It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial today for the Die Cut Design Team. This time round I decided to play with the ModaScrap Gatefold – Elegant Roses die to create a “Petal-Fold” card. It is an elegant card, suitable for weddings, invitations or any occasion where you want something a little bit different.
As the cardstock I selected to use for my card was duo-tone (also called “duplex”) – dark red on one side and light red on the other – I decided to keep to the three colors of white, dark red and light red for my card. By keeping the insert loose, I could turn it with the back showing when the card is closed, revealing the light red through the openings of the “petals”.
Hello there! Diana here with a soft card for a friend who would love a reminder of what you think of her. You can make her day by telling her she is always amazing! The flowers are made of felt so it even feels nice! I went with different shades of pink but it would look great in other colors. Check to see what you have in your craft room! Read on to see how I made this card.
My friends love knowing that I will turn their old calendars into something brand new! It’s a January ritual that extends throughout the year. Here it is March and I’m still having fun slicing and dicing the pages…
I cut some of the pages and fold them into envelopes. I cut other pages into small pieces for layering onto card fronts and gift tags! If the paper is heavy enough, I’ll even die cut some sentiments.
When I’m done, I give some of the cards and envelope to the friends who donated the calendars! I get to have the fun of repurposing would have otherwise gone into the recycling bin, they get to enjoy the calendar again in its second incarnation.
It’s Frances here today with another tutorial to share with you. I have been wanting to make a shaker card for a while, so I decided to create one using the new Heart Background die to make an anniversary card.
Hi there, artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a card that is easy to assemble yet has the clean and simple look that makes it stand out in a crowd.
One of the members of the Quietfire Design team was married this week, so to celebrate, we’ve been sharing all sorts of projects using the new lovey-dovey A Way With Word dies! Cherish, Forever, Always, Mr and Mrs and the Calligraphic Elements were designed with weddings, anniversaries and newborns in mind.
Our newlywed shared that she was going with white and grey (or silver) on the big day, so this card evolved in my creative space! I dropped in a hint of pink and I just love how it turned out.
