Wedding hearts

wedding hearts

This was only the second wedding card I’ve made. The first card was all flowers, embossing and ribbons, and I wanted to create a cleaner, more graphic feel for this one.

I’d seen tuxedo and wedding dress hearts around and knew I wanted to create versions of those with the addition of some ribbon and the heart charms, which have been lurking in my stash for ages. What I didn’t have in mind was a layout for these elements.

Given how straightforward the final layout is, you would not believe how long it took me to get to it. I went through so many variations: square cards, heart-shaped cards, portrait, landscape, more ribbons, sentiment etc etc etc

Eventually I came up with a layout I liked, and the recipient loved it too.
