Introduction: Monica's Wedding Cards
Simple, elegant, but trendy with a touch of hot pink, these cards make great centerpieces standing at each guest's plate as a thank you for coming to the wedding!
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Signature Background by Rubber Stampede
Frame from Maison Frames set by Inkadinkado
Amore by All Night Media
Classic Black and Craft White from Stampin Up!
Fuchsia pigment ink by Rubber Stampede
Aleene's Tacky Glue
Vellum tape runner and Mounting Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives
3D Dots by EK Success
White and Black cardstock
Pre-made white 4.25"x5.5" cards
Pink double faced satin ribbon with decorative edge by Offray
Step 2: Stamp Background Image
Ink background stamp with white pigment ink and stamp on black cardstock, stamping as many images as you can fit on one piece of cardstock (you will cut them apart later).
Step 3: Heat Dry the Background Images
White pigment ink takes a very long time to dry, so it is best to heat set and dry it with a heat gun (not a hair dryer!). Be careful not to scorch the paper by holding the gun too close to the surface of the paper. Set aside while you move on to the next step.
Step 4: Stamp Amore Image and Frame
Using fuchsia ink, stamp Amore image on white cardstock, leaving room in between images for the frame. Stamp the frame around the Amore image using black ink.
Step 5: Cut Everything Out
Cut apart the background images, and cut out the Amore and frame images. Cut strips of vellum to 5"x1 7/8".
Step 6: Cut Ribbon
Cut lengths of ribbon to approximately 6.5". A quick way to cut several pieces of ribbon all the same length is to cut a piece of cardboard to the right length, wrap ribbon around the cardboard as many times as you need, and then slip the scissors through each end and cut all lengths at once.
Step 7: Adhere
Adhere vellum strip to bottom half of each background piece using vellum tape. Adhere ribbon over top edge of vellum strip by applying a very thin amount of tacky glue to back of ribbon, leaving the ends. Flip piece over and glue the ends of the ribbon to the back.
Step 8: Adhere Amore Piece
Adhere the Amore framed piece to center of the front using 3D dots. Adhere the entire piece to pre-made cards using mounting squares and you're done!
