I was recently asked to make a wedding card for my husband’s colleague and the brief was the couple loved the beach and ocean so I immediately thought of the Heartfelt Sea Breeze collection and after that the card came together very quickly. I have added a bridal arch and birds from Marianne Designs and the wedding couple is from Creative Expressions. I had already made the flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Wild Rose dies and the colour was perfect for the card. And I also saved a lot of time die cutting the images from the paper collection.
I have created a side folding 5″ x 7″ card from white cardstock for my card base. I then layered gold cardstock and patterned paper for the base for the embellishments. I made sure to measure the top layer so that the boat was visible in the centre of the bridal arch.
I die cut a fence from the paper collection and trimmed it in half placing the halves on the sides of the card. I then die cut some grass from the paper collection and added over the fence on the right side.
I die cut two bridal arches – one from gold cardstock and one from white cardstock. I adhered the gold die behind the white die and offset it lightly for a glimpse of gold. The arch was then added to the front of the card with foam strips.
I die cut two wedding couple dies – one from black cardstock and one from white cardstock. I then embossed the die on some pearlised cardstock and cut around the embossed edge. I added the white die cut over this and trimmed the black die to add the male figure to the die. This was then added to the front of the bridal arch with foam squares.
I die cut the bird on the marker image from the paper collection and then die cut a separate die from plain cardstock. I adhered the coloured image to the plain die and then added it to the bottom left of the card with foam tape.
To complete the background I die cut the birds from the paper collection and trimmed them and added them around the base of the card.
I die cut the flowers using the Small and Large Wild Rose dies from watercolour paper. I coloured them with Pink Peony, Sunflower, Peachy Keen inks, wet them and shaped them with the coordinating molds. When dry I assembled them and added some stamens through the centres and added them to the top right of the card. The leaves were coloured with Pink Peony, Vivid Chartreuse and Leaf Green inks and also shaped using the coordinating mold and were then added around the roses.
To finish I added some glitter to the sea and some die cut birds from the paper collection.
