Bride and Groom Take 2

Stamping with Princess – Bride and Groom Take 2

I’ve modified the bride and groom card from an earlier post. And, again, I saw this idea on someone elses site…who saw it on someone elses site. But we don’t know where it originated from.  With wedding season upon us I thought it would be appropriate to revisit this card. This time I also have a video tutorial to go along with it. I will try to post that later this week…after I learn how to take it off the camcorder and create it in iMovie!

This card would make for a great handmade wedding invitation. The bride and groom invitation could also be modified to include some wedding colors by changing out the ribbon on the dress and the bowtie on the tux. Or it can be used as a congratulations on your wedding card. Check out my ealier versions: wedding thank you card and anniversary card.

I used the My Sentiments exactly dress rubber stamp to create this. I also added a second layer of the dress and tied a ribbon around the waist which is tied in a knot. I used Bridal embossing powder and clear embossing pad for the sparkle.

The card opens in the center…as seen in the photo below.

Inside I’ve stamped some Stampin’ Up sentiments.

The simple words, "Celebrate Love"

It’s actually smaller than the standard A2 size card. It’s approximately 4.25″ x 4.25″. The tux shirt is made with white sparkle cardstock with shiney black cardstock accents. The dress is a matte white cardstock with embossing. The buttons on the tux shirt are 1/4″ punch. The tie was hand cut.

Check back later this week for the video!

    Thank you so much for letting me know my About link was broken. I really appreciate it. I posted a link here in case you are still interested. I have no formal art training and have learned everything I know by taking part in the SCS challenges. I do love watercolor and use it most of the time for my projects. Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my blog post.

    I cannot find this stamp anywhere (My sentiments exaclty W362). Help!
    Are they still in business? They have not responded to my customer service inquiry. I live in WI. I am willing to pay shipping and handling if somebody can get me this stamp. I promised to make my nephew’s wedding invitations in this design. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Love your wedding cards. I’m thinking of making them as gifts for my sister who gets married next weekend. I’m thinking…because since it’s next weekend doesn’t give me much time.

    The dress is actually as stamp made by “My Sentiments Exactly”. It may be out of print. So..since it’s not my design, I cannot post a template for the dress. Sorry.

    Hello, I volunteered myself to make my nephew and his fiancé wedding invites and this is absolutely gorgeous and what she is looking for. Can you send me dimensions and step by step instructions on how to recreate this, please. Thank you Debbie.

    Debbie…I don’t stamp any more. I’ve switched hobbies to crochet (www.yarnovations.com). Unfortunately, this card was made with a stamp that has been discontinued. So – that means you’ll have to make each piece by hand.

    The card base is a piece of paper 8.5 x 11 that’s folded to half in the middle (gate fold). All of the other pieces you’ll need to draw and cut out freehand. After you get the shapes you want you can then trace to make the quantity you need. The buttons for the tux are a 1/8″ hole punch.

    The dress does have two layers. There is a full dress as the base. Then I cut the skirt part separate. Tape it flat at the waist but use puffy tape (dimensional tape) at the base of the skirt. Then cover the waist with ribbon (color of wedding if possible).

    For the dress shape, I would recommend that you do a Google Image search for “hand made wedding dress card”. You’ll be surprised at all the different shapes people used for the dress part.

    I hope that helps!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
    blog? Itts very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
