Hello crafty friends! Today I want to share with you three different wedding cards I made a while ago (in 2016) (one of these cards is incredibly late, for which I have no excuse at all!). Three of my friends got married, obviously, and all of them are completely different from each other, and I tried to reflect that in my cards. Let’s have a look?
Quirky and Funny
My German crafter friend Jessa got married last year and if you know her wonderful free digi stamps, you know she has a sense for quirky and fun images. Also, she loves bunnies. It seemed logical that I would try to incorporate that into my card for her.
I used digital images by Miezo from Etsy for the quirky bride and groom, and to my delight, they also had a wonderful group of bunnies, which I put in the background. I colored all of them with my Copic markers, trying to stay in traditional colors for the couple and using rainbow colors for the bunnies. I could have left them black and white, but I wanted something fun and I hereby declare rainbow bunnies fun. I die cut the entire panel with Mama Elephant’s All Prettied Up frame die.
I added a lot of Wink of Stella to the heart and coated it generously with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and stamped with Versafine ink. The paper I used for this project is 300g Mondi copy paper which I bought from Amazon Germany.
My friend from Argentina married in early 2016, and I was months late sending her the wedding card. I felt so guilty, my ears were actually hanging all the way to the floor in shame. Nonetheless, I wanted to create a fun card for her, so I used a digi by All Dressed Up.
The car with the “Just Married” sign is the traditional element, even though the entire look is more fun than serious, which fits my friend. The Argentinian flag has white and blue stripes, which I added to the car, and also a yellow sun, which is why yellow is the other main color on this card.
Of course I had to make the hearts a deep red, add Wink of Stella and lots of Glossy Accents. In addition, I added a strip of patterned paper to the side to match the colors I used in the card. And my white gel pen saw some action as well.
The one card that was actually be on time for a wedding is my third one for Alyce from Kit and Clowder, the amazing coloring classes which I keep recommending to you. She’s tying the knot as well in 2016 and I hoped that my image selection was to her liking.
This images are from Tiddly Inks and I combined the couple with the beautiful arch which I put behind them. I used, once more, my Copics and Shinhan Twin Touch Brush markers for coloring. I like how the Blue-Gray of the Shinhan markers adds an interesting tint to the groom’s suit, and I tried to add only a hint of pink to the bride’s dress and keep it very light and white otherwise.
I die cut the Simon Says Stamp cardstock with the frame die from All Prettied up, and then added some Liquid Pearls to the centers of the flowers for additional interest, and also added some white dots into the sky behind the arch
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
