So it’s starting to feel like summer has arrived and this reminds me that wedding season is also on its way! Well I say that even though my own wedding was a Christmas one 😉 . I was playing with different ideas for wedding cards and here’s what I came up with.
I’d been wanting to try out this vellum colouring technique for ages and thought the fabulous Flower Shop stamp set would be perfect for this. I white embossed the flowers and sentiment on vellum cardstock. Stampin’ Up!’s vellum cardstock is so lovely to work with and embosses beautifully without warping (as long as you don’t hold your heat tool on it too long!). I wanted to keep the colours soft and summery for this card so I chose pumpkin pie, pool party, melon mambo and wisteria wonder.
I stamped my flowers in these colours on whisper white cardstock, coloured them in with a blender pen and ink from my ink pad and punched my flowers out with the matching pansy punch. I then punched out my vellum embossed flowers and adhered these to my card flowers, to make the colours more intense.
I cut my embossed sentiment (stamped from the now retired Happy Notes stamp set) out with the Lots of Labels framelits dies and mounted this against a larger background cut from the same dies, in shimmery white cardstock and adhered the vellum to the card with glue dots.
To assemble my card, I wrapped white organza ribbon around the middle of my crumb cake card front, mounted my sentiment on dimensionals and attached my flowers around the sentiment. I matted my card front on whisper white card and adhered this to my crumb cake base. I absolutely love the effect of the vellum flowers and think the colourful nature of this wedding card makes it unique. Give this technique a go yourself! 💕💕💕
