Homemade Wedding Card Video and Template

Homemade Wedding Card Video and Template

This homemade wedding card video took me a bit longer to put together than I anticipated. Like…3 months longer! But I finally watched a tutorial on using my movie making program and I am good to go! Videos should really only take a week or two for me to put together from now on! Promise! =)

Since it’s been so long since I posted the cards, here is a picture of the wedding cards as a reminder! =)

Below is the video of me making the card. As promised in the video, I have a template of the tuxedo shirt should you wish to download that instead of making it the way I demonstrate in the video. If you have teenagers, perhaps you can have them make the shirt template using a compass as I demonstrated. The template link of the tux shirt is below the video.

And the above promised tuxedo template as a PDF.

If you create something with this template or something like this card, do leave a link in my comments so we can all check out your masterpiece.

And again, I was inspired by a card I saw somewhere online and on SplitCoastStampers.com. I believe my only claim to fame on these cards is that 1) I made a thank you card out of it, 2) I added a second layer of dress to add a 3D element to it.

What is neat about these two versions of the homemade wedding card is that you could make 15 of the thank you cards as a wedding gift or bridal shower gift and you could use the gate fold version as the card you use to put with the gift.

Here are the original posts with more info:

    My Sentiments Exactly is a wholesaler (located in my home town of Colorado Springs) which may be part of your problem.

    I would suggest Addicted to Rubber Stamps.

    Also, if you have an independent stamp store in your area, they may be able to special order it.

    Hope that helps!

    This is just wonderful! Love the thank you card, but the gate fold one is my favorite.
    I enjoyed your video & appreciate the fast forward on the ‘slow’ or unnecessary stuff!
