Simple Wedding Card Tutorial

CHAPTER 6- Simple Wedding Card Tutorial
Hello! Kristie here from Kristie Kreates Today I'm going to show you how to make a simple wedding card

 Fold a 4¼'' x 11'' piece of white card stock in half to make a 4¼'' x 5½'' card base.

 Stamp a flower image on white card stock.



 Using scissors or a shaped punch, cut around the image.


 Attach the flower image to the front of the card,
 about 1/3  of the way down on the left side of the card base, using self-adhesive foam tape.


 Using the same color ink as the flower image, stamp a greeting on white card stock. 
Using a medium oval punch or decorative-edged scissors, cut around the greeting.
Use a large scallop oval punch to create an oval piece from the
same color card stock as the flower image.
 I didn't have matching card stock,
so I used the same ink and colored the scalloped oval using a blending tool.
You can also use a make up sponge to do this.
Attach the smaller greeting oval on top of the larger oval, 
 then attach the larger oval to the card front, lower right corner,
using self-adhesive foam tape


If you want to take this one step further, using a blending tool,
or make up sponge, ink the edges of the card base.
This will add a little more color to your card.
It's all a matter of taste.
