I was recently asked to make a wedding card based on the invitation they received. All I had was a photo of the invitation to work from.
Here's the finished card...
And this is the photo of the original invitation I worked from...
and I made a co-ordinating insert too...
I started by die cutting a square and stamping the leaves in grey ink. I needed orange leaves but didn't have the right shade so I die cut the leaves from some coral cardstock and accented them with some Distress Ink. These were adhered to the square and trimmed. I then stamped the sentiment in black and mounted the square onto some grey textured cardstock. The panels were then adhered to a square linen card base. The names and date were computer generated and die cut with a stitched heart, and a grey heart layered behind. I then added a single silver enamel dot. The insert was stamped with the same grey leaves.
