I needed to make a card for a wedding and wanted to make something simple yet elegant.
Sadly the bride and groom stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps is no longer made…sorry.
I used the Hero Arts Congrats stamp set is available on ebay…here’s a link to the sets I found. https://tinyurl.com/yckn8j2y
The cardstock i used is from Recollections and is their heavyweight, here’s the link: https://tinyurl.com/bd9bfhfp . The color of cardstock I used, is cream and cut the cardstock to 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ tall, then scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ length to make an A2 size card.
I stamped with Stampin’ Up archival gray ink link: https://tinyurl.com/2p8auc6j. I don’t know if Stampin’ Up makes this ink any more, but ebay has a lot of it for sale.
I stamped the bride and groom from Rubbernecker on the card base first, so I’d know where I would have room to stamp the sentiments.
I stamped in the MISTI https://www.mysweetpetunia.com/MISTI-p/original-misti.htm ,the “Congrats” and leaving the stamp in place, and moving the card base, I stamped it two more times, then added “on your wedding” from the same stamp set…I wish I’d only stamped “on your wedding” once instead of three times, but that’s how I rolled…
I used clear embossing powder on the words to make them raised and shiny, and then heat set them. I wanted to add some color to the card, so I took a piece of plastic packaging and scribbled water based markers onto the plastic, in Stampin’ Up markers in Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder but only used Wisteria Wonder as an outline, a shadow on her dress. Then I painted his head to make hair with a brown marker (Chocolate Chip), and I used black on his tuxedo. After the card dried, I used a black marker and colored the tuxedo again to make his jacket more black than it was.
I used leftover diamonds from diamond paintings and tiny Glue Dots Link: https://tinyurl.com/2p8k2424 to attach the diamonds to the card. I used a random pattern for the diamonds (and one I placed to cover an ink spot.)
