Hi everyone, for my second wedding card I went for a classic design but added a few touches of my own. I love the embossed, pearlised card as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for wedding cards. It’s the first time I have used one of the pearl and diamond buttons and it’s just the look that I wanted.
Start with a 12.5cm square white blank card, cut a piece of pain pearlescent card to 12.3 x 5cm, stamp the Congratulations message in the centre with Watermark ink and heat emboss with Oceanic embossing powder.
Cut a piece of embossed pearlescent card to 12.3 x 7.3cm, join this to the stamped piece by taping across the back.
Cut a piece of grosgrain ribbon to approx. 14cm, cut an equal length of double sided tape and use it to attach the ribbon to the pearlescent card to cover the join, wrapping the ends round the back and sticking them securely with the double sided tape. Now attach this panel to the blank card using double sided tape.
Cut a second piece of ribbon approx. 14cm long, fold the ends in to the middle and secure with double sided tape to create a faux bow. Use a strong double sided tape to attach this to the centre of the ribbon strip. Cut the plastic shank off the back of the button to give it a flat back and again using strong double sided tape fix this in position in the middle of the bow.
I like this simple, classic design, it would work well with different colours of ribbon and different greetings. Hope you like it too, please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
