This is the first of a few posts today. I have a fantastic wedding party gift tutorial to share with you a little later today and another prize announcement so check back again soon.
I took to heart the things you wanted to see today and I also stuck with some of the ones I was originally planning to share with you. I will definitely be making more things to share with you including a program, save the date card and much more. I will share those a few days after the release.
The general consensus for everyone is QUICK and EASY--These are the 5 steps or less cards.
CARD 1: First up is a thank you card. Using this simple layout you can be sure to mass produce these cards as thank yous by changing the colours to coordinate with your wedding colours and choosing one of many coordinate images from Wedding Day.
I cut out a rectangle 3.5x2.5 in black and adhered a layer of aqua mist 3.25x2.25. I also cut out a .75 inch strip of spring moss.
I stamped randomnly on the aqua mist using aqua mist ink to create a monochromatic look.
I stamp on the satin ribbon and set aside to dry before adhering it to the strip of spring moss.
Adhere all layers and decorate with an embelishment (paper flowers are nice, primas, a brad, the scalloped circle, the scalloped square, etc)
CARD 2: Next is a card that can be used for any occasion. Because I am working with Wedding Day, i decided this could be a perfect card for the new couple. You can personalize this card by adding the couples last name under Mr. and Mrs.
I cut 3/4x4 inch strip of black cardstock and adhered it to the cardstock
I stamped the circular flourish with a circle nestabilities die and punched out the centre using the 1 1/4 inch EK Success punch. Adhere.
Stamp the sentiment Mr and Mrs
CARD 3: I just love flourishes and this was such a simple design too!
I stamped the flourish circle image in the centre of the card.
I stamped the square flourish image from the circle to the edge of the paper on both sides.
I punched out a 1 1/4 inch circle, stamped my centre image and placed it in the centre of the circle using a pop dot.
I stamped the sentiment Happily Ever After.
Designer Note: Turn it vertical and you have a watch!!!!
Card 4 I absolutely adore that the Wedding Day set is so versatile. With words like Love, Eternity, Happy Anniversary...just to name a few, this is so much more than just a wedding set.
I created an anniversary card, which could really be an all occasions card too.
I stamped randomly over the entire surface of the paper using 3 different ink colours and two different sized flourishes.
I stamped the square flourish on a strip of 3/4 inch paper and then stamped anniversary over top.
I adhered .5 inch strip of black cardstock as well as a strip of scallops and 2 inch strip of white cardstock.
I fasten prima flowers to the card using a brad.
My Challenge card
I was issued a challenge by one of my readers to make something other than a wedding or anniversary card. (Sorry for the poor lighting...I can't adjust this lighting in this card without the colours being WAY OFF so I left it untouched)
How about those numbers for adding special dates to your cards or tags?I love that you can personalize a card by adding an important date. This is perfect for birthday's, anniversaries, baby births, weddings, new years, Christmas and the winter holidays....oh the possibilities are endless. Note: Other stamp set used was Trajan Monogram Edition by PTI
I was also asked to share another wedding favour...
Here is a table number card (you could easily place the guests name in the centre for a place setting card too)
I saved the best for last today!!!
I created a personalized bracelet for the bride, bridesmaid, maid of honour etc... This is a
7 Gypsies antique brass naked bracelet I have had this in my collection for a while and it was Debbie Olson that recently inspired me to pull it out and use it once and for all! It was so simple to create...
I stamped my images and then place the round pebble over top and cut around it.
I adhered the back side of the stamped images and glued them to the round circles.
I connected all of my designs together and fastened them with pliers.
I stamped my sentiment and punched it out using the EK Success word window.
I'd love to hear what your fav project is today...also check out the post below for some exciting news.
