Wedding card: Vellum flowers

Wedding flowers

What:

My other half’s nephew is getting married, so I had to figure out how to make a wedding card.

How:

I started with the idea of heat embossing flowers in white on vellum, fussy cutting them out and arranging them on a white-on-white stamped background. Try as I might, I could not come up with an arrangement that I liked on a flat background. Browsing through Google images to give my brain a nudge, I remembered that I have been meaning to do a split-panel background card for a while — cue embossing folder and some ribbon scraps and the card started coming together.

Supplies:

  • stamps:
    Create A Smile – botanical love
    WPlus9 – damask doilies (sentiment)
  • colour:
    Avery Elle – pigment ink pad – sugar plum
    Hero Arts – embossing powder – white
  • texture:
    Elizabeth Craft Designs – embossing folder – flower mosaic
  • embellishments:
    Kars – adhesive drop gems – transparent
    purple ribbon
  • paper and card:
    Papermill Direct – pearlised card – natural white
    Papermill Direct – pearlised card – ivory
    Dovecraft – premium vellum
