A Wonderful Beginning

Wedding Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Wedding Wishes and Spellbinders Divine Eloquence
Good morning sweet friends!  This week JustRite Papercraft  has been showing new releases for the month of September.  I love an elegant card that doubles for both wedding and anniversaries so today I’m sharing a card made with Wedding Wishes.  Cream and gold are my favorites so I layered up the Vintage Labels Eight Background stamp by cutting the center part out with Vintage Labels Eight then added Spellinders Divine Eloquence, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM.  

Wedding Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Wedding Wishes and Spellbinders Divine Eloquence

I’m in a phase that I’ve been using my Krylon Gold marker on everything lately.  Someone told me they make a pen in red so I’m on the hunt!  It’s such an easy way to add embellishment!

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Score a cream 5-1/2″ x 11 panel at 5-1/2″ and fold in half to create a card base.
  2. Stamp background stamp on cream paper and trim close to stamping.  Mat with a piece of gold paper leaving under a scant 1/8″ around each edge.
  3. Stamp a second background on cream paper, cut and emboss Vintage Labels Eight along the appropriately stamped line.  Rim with Gold Krylon Marker and attach to stamped/matted background with double layers of foam tape.
  4. On left side of panels attach a vertical oriented piece of ribbon, tape behind.  Attach all to card base using double foam tape.
  5. Cut/emboss peaked piece from Divine Eloquence using cream paper, rim with Gold Krylon Marker and color filigree with marker.
  6. Cut/emboss oval from Elegant Ovals from gold paper.  Adhere to card base using foam tape.
  7. Stamp sentiment and emboss with gold embossing powder.  Use Classic Oval die to trace around shape and manually cut making sure not to cut off horizontal pennant.  Adhere to card base using foam tape.
  8. Stamp ‘Celebrating Your Day”, manually cut pennant shape and rim with Gold Krylon Marker.
  9. Attach bow, pearl button, pearl pins and pearls to card.

    Oooh aaah, oooh aaah. Love the cream & gold, so elegant. I just got a gold & a silver Krylon pen & am loving them. Still stumbling with bows other than the basics. Do you know where I can buy your bow maker? Having a devil of a time finding one. Love your work, everything your post! Thank you for sharing your gift!ReplyCancel

    Love, love, love, this card! Just gorgeous! When I see your cards I think so differently about the products used—stamps, embellishment dies, etc. than I do having never seen your cards. You are truly a credit to the products.ReplyCancel

    Oooooooooh my goodness Becca, this is so beautiful, that I´m almost out of words for it. I can´t find any at least that´s big enough to express how gorgeous I really find it, that´s for sure. Stunning work as usual, and so elegant.ReplyCancel

    Oh my goodness, this is the top of the pile. Probably one of the most beautiful pieces you have done. I really have to laugh but when you do one so beautiful as this, I read your menu to see if I have the needed dies and usually don’t have all of them. I then go into high gear to go ahead and order the ones I don’t have. Your beauty is keeping my Spellbinder “habit” going!!!! I now have started on my fifth box (Art Bin with magnetic pages). You are doing your job sooooooooo well!!!!

    A lovely elegant card as usual. You are such an inspiration!
    A quick question: If the card base is a 5 1/2 by 11 inch panel that’s scored at 5 1/2 and folded, wouldn’t that result in a square card? But it does not look like a square card.ReplyCancel
