White Wedding...

Happy Wednesday,

As you may have noticed I rarely take on commissions for cards or creations, this was mainly because as I worked in a card and gift shop it didn't seem fair to my boss to sell cards! lol

However I took on this card as a commission as it was for some really good friends from my drama group and they wanted 2 disparate cards at the same time I thought it would be fun!


The first is today's offering a wedding card for their daughter.  It was to be white with no colour to relieve it, always difficult, and this was no exception.  I started by pulling out one of my favourite dies the Sue Wilson striplet (just realised there is another striplet in the collection must order it when I get back to the U.K.)

This is a large card as it is made by folding a sheet of A3 card in half, I then took off one edge to make it a little taller and thinner!





The striplet is cut twice with the border for the highest front part, the background is cut without the border in 2 lines down each side the die is cut twice along the strip to make it big enough.  Ive hidden any joins with a wide strip of white satin ribbon and added a big bow to offset the sentiment which I printed using draft handwriting font which is available as a free download just search on google.


Studded with a few pearls and a box made to match and a card to order was born although to be honest it did take a couple of hours!











Ingredients:
Sue Wilson Striplet Die
white hammered PMD A3 cardstock
White Satin ribbon & Stick on Pearls.


I am told that the bride and groom really loved it which is always a relief!

Enjoy...

  1. Hi John. This striplet die is amazing or should I say you are at using it!
    Beautiful Wedding card. I bet Jonny and Michelle were over the moon with this. The last picture reminds me of a clutch bag. Fantastic creation yet again.

  2. Excellent card Right up my street! I love the Striplet die and I'm surprised that you hadn't realised there was another one but of course you're in Spain at mo I'm probably talking to the converted here but you need to visit iconuk Their prices seem to be very good especially on Sue Wilson dies

  3. Morning John,
    Amazing card love it, I too have to make two wedding cards for the same couple, done one which had to be a twisted easel. Hope you don't mind but I may adapt your design and do something similar for the second one.

  8. John, this is a classic. I'm sure the bride and groom will treasure this card for ever. So hard to stick to just white.....I wonder if it's easier if the one colour was blue or pink? Will have to try and see... Janice xx
