Sweet Wedding Wishes (Inkspirations #87)


I’m super excited to share the first of many wedding related projects over the next little bit. A couple of weeks back my brother got married so I’ve got cards, boxes and of course table decor to share!


The latest Inkspirations Challenge sketch was the perfect starting point for this card which was made made for their shower. They did a Jack and Jill type shower where they both attended.


I started with a So Saffron card base and layered it with Soft Suede and then Spice Cake designer series paper (which is all sponged and lovely looking).


The central panel is again Soft Suede and it’s layered with some Pool Party cardstock which is embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder, sponged and tied with some Spice Cake Designer Fabric.


For the central panel, I glued some More Mustard cardstock on a piece of chipboard and cut it out using my Big Shot and the Scallop Circles Big Shot die.


Lastly, the centre circle (which is a 2 1/2″ circle) is stamped with an image and sentiment from Easy Events. I’ve watercoloured, sponged and spritzed this layer and even added some Dazzling Details to the little heart.


To finish it off, I tied a Spice Cake designer fabric bow, added some Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon and then an Antique Brad.


Thanks so much for stopping in today! As an added bonus, here is the box I made to hold the gift:
