Wedding in Orange and Grey

Hi there

I was recently asked to make a wedding card based on the invitation they received.  All I had was a photo of the invitation to work from.

Here's the finished card...

And this is the photo of the original invitation I worked from...

and I made a co-ordinating insert too...

I started by die cutting a square and stamping the leaves in grey ink.  I needed orange leaves but didn't have the right shade so I die cut the leaves from some coral cardstock and accented them with some Distress Ink.  These were adhered to the square and trimmed. I then stamped the sentiment in black and mounted the square onto some grey textured cardstock.  The panels were then adhered to a square linen card base.  The names and date were computer generated and die cut with a stitched heart, and a grey heart layered behind.  I then added a single silver enamel dot.  The insert was stamped with the same grey leaves.

Materials used:

  • Dies: Xcut - Nesting Squares; MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax; Memory Box - Pointed Leaf
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Leafy Accents, Love Blossoms
  • Ink: Versa Color - Sky Gray; Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress Ink - Spiced Marmalade
  • Cardstock: Papermania - Grey; Stampin' Up - Calypso Coral
  • Accents: Doodlebug Sprinkles - Silver
