A Very Special Wedding Card
Good morning, Friends! Today I have a very special wedding card to share with you. It’s not every day that you get to make a wedding card for your son and his new bride! Our middle son, Andrew, was married last month and naturally, I wanted to make a special card to mark the occasion. Since I knew that red is the bride’s favorite color, I chose a simple botanical background with a bold red ribbon and hand crafted rose to star in this creation.
The Mr. & Mrs. stamp is fresh and modern when stamped in black ink on parchment paper. I used Spellbinders Labels Eighteen to to die cut the the stamped sentiment and matted it with red cardstock. Here’s a fun tip you might use. To create the perfect mat for this label, I just die cut the red cardstock, cut it in half lengthwise and glued it behind the label so that a small border shows all the way around the stamped panel. There is a very tiny gap on either side, but it is barely noticeable. I do this quite often when I want a very thin mat.
The background paper is Graphic 45 Botanicabella. This is one of my favorite collections, and I tend to hoard it because it is now out of print and hard to find. But it went to a worthy cause!
The rose is made with Spellbinders Spiral blossoms one. I’ve spritzed it with Copper perfect pearls.
The inside is very simple, and features a hand-written sentiment. I also included a gift envelope, but failed to photograph it. But I did remember to photograph the custom box I made to house the card and gift.
Here’s a photo of our new family:
Thanks for letting me share this special moment with you. I hope you found some good ideas and inspiration for your own card making adventures. If so, I’m happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
