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.
It’s Christine here today sharing a card I created for my dear friend since high school (my 50th class reunion is this summer, hers was last summer). We now live an hour and a half apart but try to meet halfway for a day of shopping, eating and catching up every so often.
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 Suzanne here today! I’ve always liked the look of magic wands, headbands with butterfly antennae, and I’m a big fan of plant picks and decorations that florists use as a special accent!
It’s the combination of something attention-grabbing at the top and a slender column below that I find appealing. Fragile and sturdy at the same time, top-heavy, but without toppling…And SO easy to make!
I decided to create some floral decor, though I can easily see decorated sticks in a pencil jar, peeking out of the headband of a party hat, transplanted to a flower pot…
Hi Artlings! It’s Suzanne back today with another clean and simple card. Today I’m sharing how you can do a little surgical procedure on your A Way With Words diecuts to expand their usefulness. All you need is an X-acto-type knife, a cutting mat and a little know-how! Here’s how we do it!
