This summer my husband and I are attending 5 weddings. Whew. A lot of weddings and a lot of traveling to get to them, only one is local. So, today I made our card for the bride and groom, including a gift card inside.
About my card
1. I originally CASE’d this card from www.StampinMary.com almost exactly for wedding #1 earlier in July. For today’s version for wedding #2 I changed it up just a bit with different colors, a double swirl, no ribbon and corner cropping.
2. I like the colors of my card to correspond with the wedding colors. It’s a thing, I can’t help it. ( I also sign and address my cards using a marvelous marker that matches too. I know, I know, OCD). Anyway, if the newlyweds notice it, they will be impressed that I took that extra step for them. If they don’t, it’s still a lovely card.
3. I love the swirl from Everything Eleanor, especially for weddings. You just can’t go wrong with it as the focal point or as the background. I also touched the corners of the whisper white with a corner punch, not SU so the Sky Blue could show through a bit. I repeated this on the corners of the inside piece of whisper white.
4. To make the gift card holder I used one of the tag slots from the chalk talk framelits set. Since this gift card wasn’t a traditional size, I placed the first slot in the top left and ran through the big shot. The placed the card and identified the placement for the bottom right corner. The magnetic big shot platform made this super easy to keep in the exact spot.
What I used: Stamps, Everything Eleanor, Label Love, Petite Pairs. Ink: Early Espresso, Sky Blue, Paper, Early Espresso, Sky Blue, Whisper white. Accessories Artisan Label, Stamp-a-ma-jig, chalk talk framelits, magnetic platform and big shot.
