Wedding Series: Wedding Cards

Hi bloggers, today's post is the final in the Wedding Series on the blog and it's all about Wedding greeting cards. I've got two different styles of cards to show you both using the same stamp set which is called 'Carried Away' by a brand called Taylored Expressions. 

This beautiful stamp set includes several stamp designs that evolve around a bunch of balloons. A metal die is also included to die cut the balloon shapes.

The first card example is a simple A6 card design which also uses a metal die called 'Bistro Lights', by Taylored Expressions. 

The combination of these dies and stamps creates a lovely scene of a young couple in love kissing underneath a scenery of hanging bistro lights. The stamp set also includes several sentiments, of which I chose:-

"May love lift you up today & always"

The second card example is one of my favourite card designs, which is a box card. These cards create so much dimension and it can get quite addictive to keep adding multiple layers. In this example we have kept each layer quite simple to create a simplistic Paris scene.

This card features the same kissing couple as before but this time they are in Paris! This card is actually quite fitting with the occasion as they got engaged in Paris right by the Eiffel tower and as you may have noticed the card also includes a tiny rat on the right side of the fence as these were also present at the time Ben got down on one knee! The sentiment stamp is from a Chalkboard Stamp Set by Anna Griffin.

 So there you have it, a series of posts to get you inspired to get crafting for your wedding. Making your own invitations, decorations etc can really help keep the budget down and also helps set you apart from the same old same old. Mix it up and make your wedding unique!
