Homemade Wedding Card Class
I taught a homemade wedding card class on Saturday at my local stamp store (Simple Pleasures) and it was a blast. I had six students and they each made four cards and two favor boxes. Many of the students were suprised at how easy the cards were to make…well, all except for the making of the bow ties! A special thank you to one of my students, a surgeon, who gave me a thank you gift. That was sooo thoughtful!
Here was my display board.
I’ve showcased some of these cards here on my blog, but here was an actual class I taugh. The top left card is for a bridal shower. The bottom right is a card I make in sets of 20 as a gift to newly weds. And the favor boxes might be something you can make for a bridal shower or rehersal dinner. They would be really cute as bird seed holders…if you want to make that many!

These are ordinary 2x2x2 boxes dressed up to look like a tuxedo and a wedding dress. A great twist on a simple box. The dress box really was 2″ all around. The tux box is 4″ tall by 2″ wide.
All the cards were created using My Sentiments Exactly dress stamp W362 which is wood mounted. They sell the dress in a smaller size as part of an acrylic set. The tux shirt was just something I created which is available on a previous post – see link below.
Normally I create the wedding dress for these cards using embossing pad and bridal embossing powder. But for class we stamped the dress image on the back of sparkle white cardstock and cut out. And it worked great.
Here are my other variations of the bride and groom card including video and template:
I also used the dress stamp on some princess themed stuff. Check out my homemade princess creations.
UPDATE: I just found a card on splitcoaststampers.com that modified this basic design. Check it out! It’s gorgeous!
