With This Ring

Hi!  I am hosting the challenge this time at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  The challenge is "With This Ring".   Here is what inspired the challenge:

"Summer is a traditional time for weddings. This year we have seen many of the celebrations become virtual, rescheduled or limited to few people participating. We as craft makers can still share our art with the happy couples by creating something beautiful to celebrate their special occasion. I challenge you to create something celebrating a wedding, it can be anything including: layout, card, decor, or gift."

I created a series of wedding cards for my daughter to pick from for friends of hers that are getting married in the next few weeks.  I am sharing those cards on Saturday at the Funkie Junkie Boutique for the Saturday Showcase.  I decided to add a few more with a few different styles.

I used some scraps and other bits left out on the table from my previous card making session and created this soft lacy wedding card:
A very traditional card with an embossed background accented with a crochet trim die cut from wax paper.

Layered the flowers with seam binding and added a lovely sentiment along the side. 

Then I decided I wanted something much more mixed media and funky for a different type of wedding. :)

This was made with multiple sprayed backgrounds.  I tore strips of different backgrounds and taped them together onto another sheet of cardstock.  The hearts were die cut from those taped together backgrounds. 

I placed it on a stenciled background with embossing paste and splatters of coordinating spray inks.

I hope this has you inspired to create a wedding based project and you can join us in the fun. The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a gift certificate for a spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

  1. While these cards couldn't be more different from the other, they are both so stunning! I love the soft elegant feel of the first, with the softly embossed background and the wisp of the wax paper Crochet die cut. But the second is so bold and modern; I just love it! We used to make a lot of these papers and called it serendipity paper. It's so inspiring, the way you used it on your wedding card. Your daughter is very lucky to have your gorgeous cards to 'shop' from! Big hugs!

  2. The shabby floral card is so elegant and very reminiscent of a wedding, especially the bride carrying her bouquet. I love the second card because it is bright and happy and makes me think of love even if the sentiment wasn't there to remind me.

  3. Two such dramatically different wedding cards and both are totally gorgeous. I love the use of texture on the first that works so well with the delicate flowers and the second one is so much fun with its bold colours and beautiful hearts. I agree with Sara Emily, your daughter has the best card shop to 'buy' from xx
