Hi friends! It’s EK, and today I am popping in to share a bold and bright ‘save the date’ invitation design.
So often I see an invitation or save the date cards and they are often created with pale or pastel tones and so serious. I thought it might be really fun to create a bold, bright, and fun ‘save the date’ card. And since I am using the ModaScrap Wedding Sentiments stamp set, creating this card will be so simple.
Step One: Trim a piece of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×8.5 and score and fold to create a A2 card.
Step Two: Using the smallest circles from the Dashing Circles die set, die cut a series of circles out of bright colored Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Ladybug Red, Bright Orange, Sky Blue, Spring Green, and Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Three: Create a frame for the card using two dies from the Dashing Rectangles die set. I used some Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock for my frame.
Step Four: Using the Wedding Sentiments stamp set, stamp images and a sentiment onto your die cut circles using some black ink.
Step Five: Adhere the black die cut frame to the card using some 3mm Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Six: Adhere the die cut circles onto the card frame, letting some of the circles dangle off the edge. Trim the bits hanging off the card so the circles become flush with the edge of the card.
Step Seven: Add some decorative drops to the card frame using a liquid drops. Did you see that ECD just add a brand new line of Craft Drops to their store? There are six new colors and I am so excited to play with these new craft drops!
I hope you got a kick seeing how I created this bold and bright save the date card. What I like about this design is I can change the stamp set and create a whole new card. Need a birthday card, this design will work. Need an anniversary card, this design could also work. And of course this fun, bright, bold design will be perfect for an anytime card!
