Hello world! Today I’ve got for you absolutely gorgeous wedding card. But it’s not just a gorgeous card. This card is matching Faceted Gift Box I’ve shared with you few days ago. And I will show you how I’ve used some scraps I had after making a box.
I tried not to use too many supplies ( I usually use way too many in one project) so except from card stock and adhesives these are the only products I’ve used. Cool hey? 🙂
You know when using Envelope Punch Board we are left with lots of tiny pieces of scrap paper. You can’t really use them for any project can you? Of course you can! So I’ve made this cute box and I had this pieces left:
I’m always trying to be savvy person, I love recycling and I’m always looking for a good way to use all my scraps. Plus Something Borrowed DSP is so absolutely gorgeous I simply couldn’t throw those pieces to the bin. So I decided to use them in my card.
For the base I’ve used a piece of Whisper White card stock: took A4 , cut it in half on a long side and the fold it in half. Baked Brown Sugar panel measure 5 x 3 2/8″ and Whisper White panel measure 5 3/8 x 3 4/8″ ( I distressed it with scissors)
To make these cute sort of embellishments I punched four squares from piece of Whisper White. Four squares of Baked Brown Sugar has been punched from the panel I used on the card same as the banner piece. Why? Because you can only see two edges of the panel, so why not? 🙂 Then I rounded two opposite corners of my square pieces, layered them together and glued my scrap pieces I had left after making a box – Awesome! I love how these turned out 🙂
The focal point of my card is a wreath and gorgeous wedding cake from Your Perfect Day. This little banner wasn’t in my plans but I’ve made a little boo boo while stamping a cake, and I stained edge of my panel. My fingers are still pretty numb and got problems to hold acrylic blocks :/ But problem was solved and I think it looks pretty cool 🙂
I stamped second cake on scrap piece of cs, cut out just a cake bit and layered it with foam adhesive onto cake on my panel. Sentimet “For The Two Of You” and “On Your Special Day” on a little banner comes from same stamp set. The last thing to do was to assemble the card. I’ve used foam adhesive for squares and top panel and snail for Baked Brown Sugar piece. I love this card and how it complement the box.
