Fall Wedding Save the Date Card

IMG_1228 copy

My brother in law and his fiancee are getting married next year in October and I thought I might make a few samples of save the date cards and possible wedding invitations to give them ideas.

This is just a card front, more mustard base layered with chocolate chip textured card stock and very vanilla, which I stamped using the Jumbo Wheel Leaves Awash in Chocolate chip ink. Then, I colored in the leaves using my Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons and Aquapainter just to blend a bit.

On top, I stamped a piece of vellum with the “Save the Date” stamp from Please Come in chocolate chip craft ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Along the top and bottom border, I paper pierced the vellum and adhered it to the base with mini glue dots.

To finish the card, I tied some Hemp Twine around the top and added a Scallop Oval in Dusty Durango layered with a Very Vanilla Large Oval. I stamped “save the date” in dusty durango ink and sponged some creamy caramel ink over top.

Slide Out Pocket Cards–Holiday and Baby Themes

This is the card I made in my video tutorial (see previous post). Outside pocket was made using Real Red textured card stock, with Christmas Cocoa DSP on the front panel. Inside, the slide out portion was made using Real Red and Whisper White card stock, with the upper corners rounded by the Corner Rounder Punch.

Stamp is from Snow Buddies (a Level 2 Hostess set) that I embossed with black embossing powder, colored in with Aquapainter. The window on the front was made from 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch. The ribbon is Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon.

It’s hard to see in the photo, but I punched the insert with the Slit Punch to make it a gift card holder.

This version uses Urban Oasis DSP (retired) as the outer jacket. The inside is Kiwi Kiss layered with Whisper White card stock. Again, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the tops only. Stamp is from Goody Goody Gumdrops (Retired Hostess Set), embossed with Black embossing powder and colored in with Aquapainter. To finish it off, I tied some Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card.

Yet another version in a more girly color scheme. This would make a great baby shower card for a little girl, or simply change the stamp image to a cupcake and you have a fun birthday card! Card base is chocolate chip, layered with Sweet Always DSP in the polka dot pattern. I ran a strip of regal rose card stock through the crimper, attached it to the front with dimensionals and then tied some fabulous Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon around the front.

Finally, this is the version I’ll be giving to my friend for her baby shower. Inside, I made a slit using the Slit Punch to hold a gift card. The outside is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Delicate Dots DSP (from last SAB). The green is Kiwi Kiss and the duck is from Goody Goody Gumdrops.
