Hi Stampers. I was recently asked to make a rustic wedding card. For those of you that know me, I’m not the rustic type. LOL With some brainstorming and a little bit of inspiration from Pinterest – I came up with this card.
This card starts with an Early Espresso card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next up is a layer of Garden Green card stock 5.25″ x 4″. Over that I adhered a 5″ x 3.75″ piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I stamped the greeting from the Better Together Stampin’ Up! stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and trimmed it to the height of the stamped greeting and flagged the end of the strip with the Triple Banner Punch and attached it with stampin’ dimensionals.
I saw the wedding couple hearts on Pinterest and thought they would look adorable against the wood texture DSP. I used the retired heart punch, but you could easily use the sweet & sassy (heart) framelit dies. The bride was cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and basic pearl jewels. The groom was cut from Whisper White and Basic Black card stock. I cut a small V out of the Basic Black heart and glued it to the white heart. I then cut the bow tie from the cookie cutter punch in Basic Black card stock. I sponged just a touch of white ink on the edges to make the bow pop a little and attached it with mini stampin’ dimensionals.
I then punched some small flowers out with the itty bitty accents flower punch. I adhered them with a mini glue dot and placed a basic pearl jewel in the center.
For the interior of the card I used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock and glued a small strip of the Wood Textures DSP that was leftover from the front onto the left side. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink. To finish it off I punched a few more flowers with the itty bitty accent punches. I noticed they didnt stand out enough, so I sponged a little Daffodil Delight ink onto the edges. They were adhered them with a mini glue dot and placed a basic pearl jewel in the center.
