Symmetrical Bride and Groom Card

Symmetrical Bride and Groom Card

You’d think I had a myriad of weddings to attend this year with the latest interest in making bride and groom cards. Not sure what the fascination is lately but I had another idea for modifying the tux and dress card.

I will be using my latest bride and groom, tux and dress card as an anniversary card for a good friend. I can’t help it, I think this tux and dress is adorable!

So, I have the tux in a two inch square on the left.  And a dress on the right, again in a two inch square. Each square is lined with silver cardstock. I silver embossed the words “forever and always” underneath.

It was extremely difficult to capture the pearls in the photograph. I think the flash on the camer and the DCWV glitter paper I used on the dress did not get along well.  Anyway, I put a few pearls on the waistline and one at the neck line. Gives it some flare.

Pretty simple and straight forward card. Guess that’s what appeals to me about it. I call it my Symmetrical Bride and Groom card because of the 2″ squares and the underlying text. I debated about putting the squares at an angle, one overlapping the other. But I couldn’t decide if the bride should be on top or the groom. So I put them side by side! =)

The tux shirt is glitter paper from DCWV. I used a 1/4″ hole punch for the buttons.  Just hand made the tux shirt shape and the bow tie. The dress is from My Sentiments Exactly. I stamped the back of some DCWV glitter paper and cut out the top part of the stamp. I did use dimensional puffy tape behind the 2″ squares.

Here are my other variations of the bride and groom card including video and template:

Supplies:

  • Dress Stamp – My Sentiments Exaclty
  • “forever and always” stamp – My Sentiments Exactly
  • Black matte cardstock
  • Black shiney cardstock
  • White glitter paper – DCWV
  • Silver cardstock
  • Silver detail embossing powder
  • Embossing Gun
  • Pearl gems
  • 1/4″ hole punch

    It’s a lovely card. The silver card stock made the card looks 3 D. Nicely done!

    This is so neat! The theme to my wedding is tux and gown. I have been looking everywhere for a wedding card box that has a classy, simple tux and gown on it like your card. Do you ever do orders for people? I am wondering if there’s any way I could pay you to put this design on a black or white box for me for my wedding cards. This may not be something you do, but it’s so perfect so I can’t help but at least ask 🙂 My email address is lisageist@gmail.com Thanks!!
