Hi, everyone! Spring often kicks off the wedding season, and a fun way to celebrate a young couple’s union is to give them a handmade card. Teri here to show you how to make some quick wedding cards like these Pretty Framed Wedding Cards!
Create the Frames
Start by adhering several pieces of patterned paper to a piece of white cardstock. Then mount a combination of 3D Foam Circles in White and 3D Foam Frames onto the pieces of patterned paper.
Apply the bronze color from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Nature Colors set to the frames. Simply place the foil color facing you and rub the foil over the exposed adhesive to transfer the color. Reapply the foil if you have missed areas.
Card Panel Embellishing
Adhere a panel of patterned paper onto a white card base. Place a couple of your foiled frames onto it. Consider mixing and matching circles and rectangles together. Place a third frame onto your card, adhering it with a 3D Foam Strip Large White so it can lay across the other frames.
Add a few wedding-themed die-cuts to your card. Don’t have any? Make your own decorations with stamps and additional patterned paper.
Embellish the card by adding a 3D Foam Heart to it. Be sure to add foil to it as well. Also, add some Adhesive Dots Micro and apply foil to them. Complete the card by adding some metallic thread or twine to it.
Switch It Around with the Same Technique
Since I like to make many frames at one time, it’s easy to make a second wedding card to use for another occasion as I did here.
Change up the design by adding more 3D Foam Hearts to it. While working on this card, I burnished foil onto one side of each heart before placing them on the card. I don’t recommend normally foiling this way, but it can be helpful when adding small foiled 3D Foam Shapes to any design.
