Hello friends! Today I’m sharing 2 cards that I made with the Spellbinders Wedding Season by Nichol Spohr collection.
For my first card, I made a traditional wedding card. This card could be given to the couple as part of their wedding gift, or it can be given to the groom from the bride or to the bride from the groom. I love the clean and classic look! I used the colors that were in my wedding more than 10 years ago.
For this card, I used the Wedding Dress & Tux Etched die set. Using my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine, I diecut the dress pieces from white cardstock. To add a little bit of detail to the dress, I took the bodice of the dress, and embossed it using the tiny dot embossing folder. I diecut the tux pieces from black cardstock, the shirt pieces from white cardstock, the tie from blue cardstock, and the boutonniere from pink and green cardstock. I glued the dress pieces together, then the tux pieces together. I also diecut the Happily Ever After Sentiment die set from silver cardstock and 2x from white cardstock. I stacked the sentiments and glued them together to create a dimensional sentiment.
For the background, I used some distress oxide inks, (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch), and ink blended a ombre blue panel. I trimmed the panel to 4 x 5 1/4 inches. To add more interest to the background, I used the Love Stripes embossing folder. I adhered the background panel to a white card base using foam tape. Then I adhered the dress and tux using more foam tape. I glued the sentiment right on top of the dress and tux. To finish off this card, I used a clear glitter brush pen on the tux lapels, and little bit of Nuvo drops in blue babe on the background.
For my next card, I made a Maid of Honor card. This card can be used by a bride to ask a friend to be maid of honor, or as a thank you card for the maid of honor.
I diecut the dress pieces from white cardstock for the wedding dress. I cut florals with pink, lavender, purple, and green cardstock, as well as the sash from purple cardstock for the wedding dress details. I also cut the bodice, shoulder straps and a bow in purple cardstock for the maid of honor dress. Like the wedding dress in my first card, I used the tiny dots embossing folder to create interest on the dress. After gluing the dress pieces together, I set them aside to work on the background.
For my background, I used some distress inks (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Seedless Preserves) to create an ink blended background. I wanted my card to say Maid of Honor, so I looked through my stash, and pulled out the alpha plates from an old Glimmer of the Month kit (April 2019) to spell out Maid of Honor. I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine and the Fuchsia Flower foil. For the sentiment strip, I used a sentiment from last month’s Glimmer of the Month called Thanks a Million, and I used blush foil.
I adhered my background panel, again trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4 inches, to a white card base with foam tape. I adhered the dresses with foam tape, and used foam tape to adhere the sentiment strip as well. To finish off the card, I added some Nuvo drops in shimmering rose.
I really love how these cards turned out, and I hope you do too!
