A friend of mine in Ontario recently asked me if I’d make a wedding card for a co-worker who’s getting married in June. Of course, I said I’d love to – it’s not often I get to make wedding cards! I asked about the wedding colours and was told it’s going to be a nature theme, with trees, greenery, eucalyptus, etc. Right away I knew the “Forever Fern” stamp set and coordinating “Forever Flourishing Dies” would be ideal for this card!
I had an idea for the card layout, using a woodgrain pattern of Designer Series Paper for the background. First I embossed the sentiment on the front layer and then I started stamping & die cutting all my leaves.
The leaves were stamped in different shades of green, as well as Gray Granite & Sahara Sand, for a soft, muted tone for the card. I couldn’t resist adding some gold embossed splatters as well. Once my leaves were stamped and die cut I layered them onto the Designer Series Paper with glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I trimmed off the excess bits around the edge and adhered the layer to the card front with more dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I layered Basic White card stock, over Designer Series Paper. A few stamped images also carried the front design into the inside of the card.
There may be a few people signing this card, so I wanted to make sure there was plenty of space for well-wishes for the happy couple.
The embossed sentiment on front of the envelope is from a retired stamp set called “For the New Two”. I love how the envelope coordinates with the card (part of the beauty of making our cards, right?)
I hope the soon-to-be-married couple likes their card – it was a real pleasure to make, that’s for sure!Product List
Enjoy the day, stay well & HAPPY STAMPING!
