Chapter 2 Tutorial Wedding Card Recipe
Hello, Kristie here from
Today I'm going to show you how to make
a wedding card using the idea from Chapter 2
"1. Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of brown card stock in half
to make 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.
2. Stamp heart images randomly across the base."
I stamped mine with Versa Mark Ink which is
a clear water mark ink.
There is no color to this ink so it only enhances the
color of the card stock.
"3. Now stamp desired image (flower, bird, etc.)
on white or other colored card stock scrap.
Punch with medium oval punch or cut using decorative
edges scissors. Adhere to center of card front with glue."
I decided on this rose image, I stamped it with
Versa Fine Black Onyx ink and cut it with
a rectangle die as I don't have an oval punch
that was the right size.
I then adhered it to the card base.
"4. Utilize a favorite quote, printed on card stock
for the inside message of the card.
Example: 'Of all forms of caution,
caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.'
I didn't put a quote or sentiment in this card yet,
as I would like to wait until I'm going to use it.
I will then add a sentiment specific to the couple it is
This is where the card recipe ends in the book.
I have decided to take it a few steps further,
just to give some ideas if you'd like to kick it up
a notch or two.
Some people will like to leave it at this point,
some will like to add a little more.
Here I added the rose stamped panel to a piece of
yellow card stock.
If you know the wedding colors, you could use
a color that coordinates with their colors.
To take it up another level,
I stamped the rose again onto white card stock.
Then colored it with colored pencils and
fussy cut it, leaving just a small edging of
white around the image.
Using foam tape, I adhered it to the card
front, right over the other stamped image.
This gives the card a bit more dimension.
And the final card.
I'm sure any couple would be happy to receive any of these
cards, if it is the most basic or the most 'embellished'
they will be sure to love it.
There is more you could do to embellish it even further if you'd care to.
You could add "Wedding Wishes" above the rose,
add some "Wink of Stella" which is a clear glitter,
to the rose. You could use some ink or water color to
give that white background a bit of color.
It's all up to you and your tastes.
Thanks for stopping by today,
