This week, my assignment was to create cards with the theme “weekend fun!” Well, I don’t know about you, but our weekends all month long consist of weddings, receptions, and bridal showers! Good times – I love June! So…in keeping with the weekend fun theme, I thought I’d share a couple of wedding cards I whipped up with the “Spring Fling” collection.
I started with plain white cardstock, cut into a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base. The fold is along the short side.
Next, I scored and folded the front flap backwards, to create a sort of accordion fold.
Now to add some patterns! Cut several patterned paper (coordinating, of course) to cover the front, the inside of the front, and the inside back.
At first I was going to use the quote card on the inside…but I changed my mind and decided to cut the “celebrate” card into a tag shape and attach it to the inside of the front. Of course, before I attached it, I punched a hole and tied jute through the top!
I added the “Best Day Ever” tag to the right side of the back…keeping in mind that this will be visible when the card is “closed.”
Next I added a die-cut heart and a sticker heart (with foam adhesive).
Finally, I added a paper die-cut doily to the front of the card and then layered a pre-made accent right on top!
This is a fun way to create a unique card – easy but with a bit of flair! Plus, bonus, it fits in a regular envelope!
My second card follows the same basic concept with different papers and embellishments.
Enjoy wedding week-end season – and have fun creating your own cards for the sweet couples!
