Felicia & Jeff's Wedding!

Tomorrow night one of my niece's is getting married. I created a card for the Felicia & Jeff's wedding below and if you keep reading, I also have their wedding invites that I was asked to create back in May. If you read yesterday's post, I had another wedding post so you've probably figured out that yes, I had 2 weddings to create invites for, both at the same time!

Here is the wedding card:

My niece picked pastel pink and pastel blue for her wedding colors. Thus the reason for the colors I picked for the card. This card uses the "Streaky Glass Technique". If you come back in a few days, I'll have a tutorial for you on how to do this.

Look how shiny and streaky the heart turned out! I used quite a few elements and supplies on this card and I love how my flowers turned out. I used the Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die and cut 2 of each flower for a total of 6 flowers and layered them with a Rhinestone Brad in the center:

Card Supplies:
  • Stamp Sets: My Friend, A Word For You 
  • Cardstock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
  • Inks: Pool Party, Rose Red
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: Eyelet Border Punch, Top Note Die, BigShot Machine, Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die,  Full Heart Punch, Scalloped Heart of Heart Sizzlit Die, Stampin' Dimensionals, Crystal Effects
Now I will show you the invites that I made for them. Felicia wanted something with a monogram on it so I decided to make a belly band that slides on or off of the card once it is folded:

The invite has the matching monogram:

I had a production line going when creating 150 of these. It was quite stressful but well worth it once the invites were all completed!

Invite Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
  • Inks: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
  • Stamps: Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel, Always Elegant, Lovely Letters Alphabet

Congrats to Felicia & Jeff!
