January is traditionally wedding season here in New Zealand -so I thought I’d create this simple wedding card for you.
It may be simple -but it’s very pretty and very easy to create in under 15 minutes.
My husband took one look at it and asked me if I designed it!
So, I am super pleased it had that effect on him -and hopefully you will get the same response from the person you’re giving it to!

Putting together your card
- Burnish your cardbase and set aside
- Glue your DSP at an angle onto your cardbase
- Using Memento Ink, stamps 2 images from the Decorative Borders in a mirrored style onto your basic white cardfront
- Using your Stampin’Up! blends -colour in the flowers/leaves
- Stamp your sentiment using Soft Suede
- Once you’re happy with the look -gently and very lightly blend some Crumbcake over the paper
- Roughen up the edges using paper scissors
- Adhere this over your DSP
- Adhere your metallic dots in position
- Make a bow using the natural woven ribbon ( I cut a piece in half -shredded it entirely and then used the threads to make a bow)
- Adhere the bow using a glue dot
- Stamp another image onto your second basic white cardstock, blend lightly as with the front and then adhere to the inside of the card
- You may wish to repeat the process for your envelope
And just like that you’ve created a simple wedding card that’s very elegant and in my opinion -just stunning!
