Wedding Cards

At last, a new post!  Although these are some wedding cards I made a little while ago but thought I'd share them with you.

The first one is a retro design using lovely patterned paper with retro circles, simply rounded the corners and taped onto a DL card.  The blue card strip across the front is matted onto a shiny  black card  and has the sentiment stamped onto a scrap of white card trimmed with a corner rounder.  The main focal point is the cute couple stamped and black embossed onto a white tag.  Another tag made out of the same blue textured card is placed behind.  Both tags are tied with a light blue velvet ribbon for extra texture interest.  To finish off, a tiny sparkly gem is added to the bride's hand.

The next one is based on the design as the first but with different paper.  The yellow, green and white paisley paper is gorgeous and is mounted onto a textured yellow DL card.  Both card and paper have their corners rounded.  The tags are as before but are tinted with yellow and green ink, as is the sentiment piece.

The white DL card has a shaker section with prisma glitter.  The sentiment is stamped and silver embossed and the main card has silver peel off corners.  It is finished with a silver cord with clear beads on the ends.

The last one has tiny real dried pressed  rosebuds held by pearlescent paper punched cherubs.  Hearts with swirls inside are stamped on the DL card  with Brilliance ink as is the paper with the sentiment (if I make this again I will use a different and smaller heart for this).  The wedding vows are made in Word on the pc and the opposite corners of the paper are curled and adorned with corner peel offs.

I am finishing off a batch of cards using my stash from my recent trip to the USA . I always prefer to make a few at a time ringing the changes but with the same theme.  I will put them on here asap.  Hope you enjoyed looking at my cards and thanks for stopping by.
