Although the design of the card is based on a wedding theme you can easily use the same layout and make the same design using different papers that you have in your card making supplies. The card can be adapted and used as a new baby, birthday card idea and so on.
You will need to start this handmade card idea by finding an A4 sheet of cardstock and folding it into a DL size card. I used white cardstock however this really doesn’t matter as the front of the card is going to be covered with wedding scrapbook paper.
I found a sheet of scrapbook paper in my craft supplies that was beige in colour and consisted of romantic words. The words fitted in well with the wedding theme so I attached this to the front of the card using double sided tape.
I then found a strip of cream organza ribbon and tied it around the card. organza ribbon works best because it is transparent so you can still see the wording on the paper underneath. If the paper you have selected is plain then a solid ribbon would be fine.
You will need to tie a knot in the ribbon at the top of the card as shown in the picture above.
To make the knot more attractive tie a second piece of ribbon onto the original knot. Here, I have used a thin piece of gold satin ribbon as it matches the card really well.
I found this mini marriage certificate in my card making supplies and decided to use this as the focal point of my card. You can substitute this with any wedding picture, decoupage paper or stamped image.
I mounted the certificate onto brown Bazzill cardstock and cut a thin border. I then mounted it onto a scrap of the same paper I used for the base of the card and tore around it to give it a different effect. I then once again mounted it onto the same brown bazzill card.
Place the handmade embellishment at the top of the card and secure it in place using double sided tape or 3d foam if you want it to stand out.
Your card will need a message or some wording. It is down to personal choice how you do this. I have used peel off stickers, however printing it from a computer, or using rub-ons will work just as well.
If you do decide to use a printer and you know who the card is for you can make it more personal by adding the names of the people who are getting married including the surname they will share.
Mount the wedding wording on the same brown bazzil cardstock as previously used for the embellishment.
That’s it, a really simple handmade wedding card. For more wedding card ideas please feel free to browse the rest of the website.
