Bridal Love Card

Hello

Today I’m sharing with you all the second bridal shower card I created last week which I mentioned in my previous post.

This card is a simple CAS style card where I cut and embellished the white cardstock front of the card to look like a wedding dress.

Love Bridal Dress Card

To cut the wedding dress shape I used a small and large Spellbinder’s circle die which I positioned on my card front and traced around one edge until I got the shape I wanted. Using a craft knife I then cut the dress shape before gluing a piece of black metallic cardstock behind it to replace the cardstock I cut away from the card front.

I then heat embossed my sentiment onto the black metallic cardstock and embellished the waist of the dress with some metallic flower trim and a small ribbon bow.

If you need a lot of wedding cards or thank you cards for a wedding, then this one would be great as it is so easy to mass produce. Now I just have to come up with one for the actual wedding next weekend!

Thank your for taking the time to stop by today.

Bridal Shower Card

Hi Everyone

I swear it feels like I have had heaps of weddings to attend this year and I have another one coming up in 2 weeks! When it rains it definitely pours! Lol! Yesterday I had the bride’s bridal shower to attend so I left the girls with my hubby for a couple of hours and got to enjoy some girly time with my sister-in-law and eat a lot of sugar filled goodies!

I created a couple of bridal shower cards for the bride (one for my mum to give to her, and one from me), so I’ll share one of them with you all today. We generally have what is known as “Kitchen Teas” here in Australia which is basically the same thing as a bridal shower but the gifts are all items for the bride’s kitchen.

Best Wishes Bridal Hearts Card

Instead of creating a kitchen tea card which usually involves cooking utensils or food etc, I made a card for her bridal shower focussing on the bride and groom in which I used hearts to symbolise the pair.

To create the bride and groom hearts, I just digitally cut some hearts from metallic cardstock and using my craft knife cut a short line down the middle of a black heart before folding the centre of the heart out. I then glued it to a white heart base and hand cut a little bow tie and added some enamel dots for buttons, to create a tuxedo. For the heart representing the bride I just dry embossed it with a flourish pattern and added some adhesive rhinestones for embellishment before gluing them to my card base using adhesive foam.

It was such a fun card to create and I hope she really likes it. I better get a move on and tackle some housework, but I’ll be back to share the second bridal shower card with you all shortly.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Chevron Tag Love

Hello

Did you all create lots of cards for World Card Making Day on Saturday? I managed to steal some crafty time and create a couple of cards, one of which is this Kraft and white coloured card.

Love Chevron Tag Card

I used the gorgeous Mix & Match collection from Kaisercraft to create this card. This is one of my favourite Kaisercraft collections. The colours are all so gorgeous and it features lots of Kraft so it’s versatile and fun to work with.

I’ve never really used tags in my card making before but I couldn’t resist buying the gorgeous Chevron Tag Pack when I saw it, so I wanted to create a card that showcased these tags. The love one was perfect to use as my card’s sentiment.

Love Chevron Tag Card - Close Up

I cut a panel of the Tiny Hearts patterned paper from the collection to use as my base and glued it down only my white card base.  I then tied the two tags together using the twine from the pack and glued them down onto my card, then added some adhesive foam behind the love one to give it a bit of height.

To create the flower, I used some of the matching chevron patterned paper which I die cut with MFT Stamps’ Rolled Mum die and rolled up to create the flower.  I then embellished the flower and the card with some gorgeous Crystal Sparklets.

I can’t wait to play some more with this collection!

Anyway, have a wonderful day today, and thank you for stopping by.

I used the gorgeous Danville Wreath die by Simon Says Stamp and die cut it from some green and red glitter cardstock. I then cut the flowers from the red glitter die cut and glued them down onto my green glitter die cut wreath.

I glued the wreath to my card base, only adding glue to the back of the flowers, to give it a bit of lift and dimension. Finally I embellished the flowers with rhinestones and pearls before adding a double bow from some jute twine, and stamping my sentiment to the bottom. Here’s a close up of the wreath.
