I was lucky enough to be invited to 2 weddings over the last few days, how fortunate am I, love a wedding. Both couples had a rustic theme, kraft cardstock, very vanilla and a pop of colour. With that ‘natural look’ in mind I made a wedding card for each couple.
Both cards are very similar and start with a Crumb Cake card base. Next I took a Crumb Cake panel 5” by 3¼”and stamped randomly all over the upper two thirds in Crumb Cake ink using many of the small images from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set to create the effect I wanted and I was really happy with the result.
I took a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 3¼” by 2”and ran it through the Big Shot using the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, love the effect this gives, and added it to the lower third of the panel with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I added the whole piece to a Very Vanilla panel 5⅛” by 3⅜” then to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock 5¼” by 3½” to match the colours the bride had chosen for her theme. I used some of the lovely soft Very Vanilla Lace Ribbon to tie into a bow around the topper which gives the card a more finished look, tying the top and the bottom together.
The whole piece was added to the Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was stamped in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and trimmed with scissors. It was added to the card front using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
For the second card I substituted Old Olive ink and cardstock instead of the Night of Navy and added an extra Very Vanilla cardstock panel between the topper and the Crumb Cake card base.
I was really happy with the way the cards turned out, I hope you like them.
