A Very Special Wedding Card

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 ribbon is Red Organza from Really Reasonable ribbon.  I tied it with my Zutter Bow it All to make that perfect bow!

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.

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!

    Kathy –

    I had saved this post to comment on later because when I first saw it, I loved it, but I had to take time out to be with family. My mom passed away and being the child in town, I was the one the family leaned on. Now the busy part is over and I’m getting back to viewing my email postings. Your card is just beautiful! I love that you made in with red because your daughter-in-love loves that color. The photo is just lovely! I love the bride’s flowers and your red shoes! What a beautiful family! Following your posts makes me very happy!
