Wedding season is upon us in our home, not only do we have 2 weddings from our house. We have quite a few to attend too! Not only do we need cards for Scott and I, but the kids keep calling for wedding cards too! I have them all trained well, that we don’t buy a card when mom can make them and they are much cheaper too. When you invest in stamps, ink and paper it may seem expensive at first but when you make multiple cards over and over your investment quickly pays off! I use my stamps and I never buy a card! No need to run to the store to get a card, just a trip to my stamp room.

This was the first time I sat down with this stunning paper and it was so much fun to create with! The Designer Series Paper is beautiful and so elegant. Perfect for wedding and shower cards. Then the ribbon in this suite is also stunning! The shower today was a no wrap shower so you had to take your gifts unwrapped. Those tend to stress me out as I love to have the card match the paper, the ribbon etc. Yes, I may have a bit of OCD to say the least! But, no worries, see below I stamped the ribbon and added a clear bag so not wrapped and still matched my card. I felt so much better about this gift after that. Just kidding but this card was one of many created and so much fun to create with this suite of products.
My shower give wrapped in cello and yes, the card matches the gift and then how fun to stamp the ribbon! It was the perfect compliment to the ribbon and present and so easy to do! I love how it turned out!

I used Basic Gray ink to stamp the ribbon. I just alternated the stamp directions as I stamped. Super quick and easy to do!

The card is a Smokey Slate Standard card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, DSP first layer cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ and second layer is 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″. Layer the second piece on to the first DSP cut and then wrap the ribbon around the card adhering to the back of the DSP. Die cut using the layering circles a vellum circle and a Basic White Stylish Shapes stitched circle. Note- these are my favorite die cuts by far, so fun to use! I then stamped a Crumb Cake flower image and then stamped the greeting over the top in Basic Gray ink. Adhere the stamped circle to the velum using the Stampin Seal plus and then use Stampin Dimensionals to pop the circle up off the card and over the ribbon. Use the take your pick tool to add so Rustic Metallic Shapes on the stamped circle. Be sure to stamp the inside and the envelope so they all coordinate!
This set is so elegant and so much fun to create with! Great birthday cards and wedding/shower cards in no time. I have a class complete with 8 cards using the bundle.
