Elegant Wedding Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

It is the last day of the half term holiday just the weekend to go now. We are heading off to Bristol later this morning.  We will be staying in the hotel we will be using for the wedding so that we can check things out. On Saturday we will be visiting the company who we are hiring the chairs from. It is going to be busy.

One of the ladies at work is getting married soon. It is only going to be a small affair but I wanted to make her a card. She showed me a picture of her dress and I used the colours as inspiration for this card.


I took an 8" x 8" card blank and trimmed it down to 7" x 7". I found two sheets of the pink card in my stash for the mats and layers. The paper came from a pad by Wild Rose Studios I am using these papers for our daughter's wedding. For the background detail I used the corner die from the French Collection Border Corner Tag die set by Creative Expressions. 


I cut the sentiment with the Expressions Ornate Oval On Your Special Day die set from Creative Expressions. I do cut these sorts of details from centre of the mats below to save card. 


I used a piece of matching paper and a Deep Punch around the page punch set to create the border. I added a plan square that I inked around the edge so I can write a message. 


I hope she likes this card. I isn't long till her wedding now they have only been planning it for a few weeks. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  3. She will treasure the card, Jackie - such elegance in the way the layers are done - WONDERFUL card! I'm getting old I guess LOL your blog has such tiny lettering, that it's hard to read. So I increase my browser to read, and then put it back to normal size. I hope the trip to Bristol was enjoyable! hugs, de
