Can you believe there is only one little stamped image on this sweet wedding card? Surprise! I created this banner card by letting my tools do all the work and using designer series paper for the banner instead of stamping.
The stamped sentiment image is from the Banner Banter stamp set which includes images for banner pieces as well. The coordinating Banner Punch makes quick work of getting all the pieces cut exactly right. If this is on your wish list, save some money by ordering the bundle. You can choose clear-mount or wood-mount stamps plus the punch and get a 15% discount versus buying the items separately.
I'm loving this color combination of Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe, and Whisper White for wedding colors. It's soft and elegant and dreamy. Yes?
- This long 3" x 6" card will accommodate a store gift card, a check, or even cash. (Or just include it with your beautifully wrapped gift.)
- Vellum cardstock is dry embossed using the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder. Not only does it add interest and texture, it reminds me of rice or confetti.
- The embossed vellum is attached to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals strategically placed behind the flowers and banner pieces.
- I cropped the banner pieces from select patterns in the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack.
- Creating a coordinating envelope was a snap using In Color Envelope Paper (Tip Top Taupe) and the Envelope Punch Board.
I mentioned above that the embossed dots remind me of rice or confetti. Does anybody even throw rice at weddings/receptions any more? I don't think so. I think these days it is bird seed or "fake" rice - whatever that is. Ha, ha!
I do know that making those little rice bag favors takes a long, looooong time if there are a lot of guests. Once you make a few hundred of those, you won't want to see rice again for a very long time!
p.s. Me and my big mouth! Last week I mentioned that things were getting back to "normal" and I was looking forward to being back on a regular posting schedule. Yup - that jinxed it! We've been dealing with a sick kitty and multiple trips to the vet. Not a great week. Hope yours was better.
