Wedding Card: Sunshine Wishes for Paige and Ryan

Wedding Card Made with My Stash

Hello Paper Crafters!! Do you like to make cards for special occasions? One of my favorite is wedding cards, but I haven’t had much of a need to make a wedding card. However, my children, as well as all the children mine grew up with are at that age where if they meet the right person then weddings will follow. Paige, the daughter of a close friend, found that special someone, Ryan. The wedding was lovely and I enjoyed myself immensely. I have known Paige since she was 18 months old and I wanted to make her a special card. I find I can create something really special when I pull various items purchased over the years and combine them to make the perfect project.

Mixing Old and New

This wedding card is a mix of old and new. I purchased the Special Day stamp many years ago, as well as the Tagger’s Dozen. The Special Day stamp* was one of those stamp sets you see and you know you just have to have it. The Tagger’s Dozen* is a very versatile set and can provide the perfect accent for any card. Paige and Ryan’s wedding colors were Tranquil Tide and Wisteria Wonder. I was pleased to see I had the Wisteria Wonder Ruffled ribbon* in my collection of ribbons.  Punches are a good investment because you can use them for years. I have quite a collection that I can go to and find the perfect size (Artisan Label*) for the sentiment I am using. I incorporated new products I have like Sunshine Wishes framelits and Large Letter thinlits to create the perfect wedding card.

*Stamp’ Up! no longer sells these items, but there are people who sell their personal collection online. With a little research I am sure you could find what you need.

The Project:

Step 1:

Cut your pieces.

  • Score and fold an 8 ½” x 11” piece of Whisper White card stock.

  • Wisteria Wonder card stock: Cut to 8 1/4” x 10 ¾”.

  • Tranquil Tide card stock: Cut to 8” x 10 ½”.

  • Cut an 8 ½” piece of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled ribbon.

Step 2:

Stamp your images.

  • Mr.  & Mrs.: Stamp with Tranquil Tide ink on a scrap of Wisteria Wonder card stock. Use the Artisan Label punch to punch it out. 

  • Special Day: Stamp on an 8 ½” x 5 ½” Whisper White card stock. Then cut to 7 ½” x 10”.      Tip: You want to stamp slightly above the center.

  • Sponge the Whisper White heart with Wisteria Wonder and Tranquil Tide ink. Tip: See sample below. You want to sponge sections in Tranquil Tide and Wisteria Wonder for a mottled effect.

Step 3:

Die Cut pieces.

  • Die cut 3 hearts (1 in ea. of Whisper White, Tranquil Tide and Wisteria Wonder).

  • Use gold foil to die cut the “R” and the “P”.

Step 4:

Putting it all together.

  • Adhere the Wisteria Wonder card stock piece to the Whisper White card base, then the Tranquil Tide piece on top of that.

  • Using Snail attach the ribbon to the bottom of the Whisper White piece with the background stamp. Then adhere to the front of the card.

  • Use the Mini Glue Dots to adhere the hearts to the card. I used 3 per heart.

  • Use Dimensionals to adhere the initials and the punched piece.
