A few more cards

August 14th, 2016

A wedding card (using a favourite stamp) and a farewell card.

Although this stamp, My Mother’s Dress, is not strictly a wedding one, I find it works well on wedding cards if I am designing for the bride.  I used it a few years ago for my manager, although this time I was going for a different feel and colour palette.  While there is a hint of pink, I was going for creams, and the stamped piece is mounted on a piece of gloss card that has been stained with alcohol inks in a range of browns and rust colours, making a rusted piece of card.  The dress itself was coloured with twinking H2Os, and I have used a real lace doily and some vintage style washi tape at the top and bottom.  I really liked the softness of the overall effect, and was pleased with the whole card.

Sepia and lace wedding

The second card was also for a work colleague who was leaving, as she appreciates my work I put a lot of effort in.  The lady was stamped onto patterend paper, which was layered onto craft card which had been punched down one side and stained.  I wrapped lace around both pieces, and then layered it onto a piece of matching paper (same series) which had also been stained around the edges.  A cream flower was attached to the front.

The envelope was decorated with a journalling tag from the same series, lined so I could write her name, and then a flower was attached to the front.  I really liked this one too – obviously the cream and sepia palette is a think for me right now, but I think it works 🙂
