Designer Series – Basic Rectangles

June 1, 2018

Good morning everyone! I’m over at Mama Elephant‘s blog today and I’ve got a card to share with you using the May release Basic Rectangles creative cuts.

May to September is basically “wedding season” here in Vancouver, so I’ve got a simple wedding card to share with you today!

First, I blended a few colours onto my card base. Since the wedding invitations had pink bits here and there, I decided to incorporate their wedding’s colour scheme into the card. I did some colour blocking using dark pink, light pink and a little bit of gold. I then die cut the window in the middle using Basic Rectangles creative cuts.

I whipped out the perfect stamp set for weddings – Oh Happy Birds stamp set. I stamped out the flower wreaths, the two little birdies and the bell and coloured them in.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment “Oh Happy Day” from the same stamp set. This sentiment would appear in the window from the card front.

I stamped “To The Cutest Couple” onto the front of the card and prepared to adhere all the little bits and pieces onto the card front.

And here you go! The complete wedding card that left our house a few weeks ago! I created a kraft envelope and stamped out the flowers from Pretty Peonies and added some white and gold specks to the envelope.

You can see the sentiment peaking out from inside the card!
