This “To the Perfect Couple” Wedding card is super simple to create and the sparkle you get is amazing. I stacked 3 die cuts on top of each other to create a chipboard effect and added a red paper to make it look brighter and festive. I finished it with a sentiment.

Learn How To Create A DIY White Wedding Invitation With Texture

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello everyone, today I have a quick and elegant card. This technique would be perfect for a wedding invitation. I create the shimmer and texture using the new Sheer Shimmer Stix in Frost and an embossing folder. The base of my card is Whisper White cardstock and I cut a second layer using the same color of cardstock, but apply the shimmer-texture technique for a very cool tone on tone look.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Determine the area that you want to paint and add texture. I used post it tape to obtain a straight line.


Step 2

Evenly apply the Sheer Shimmer Frost with the Stix Dauber. Let the paper dry naturally, it takes a few seconds only.


Step 3

Without removing the post it tape, take an embossing folder of your preference and align the borders to only emboss the painted area. Pass the sandwich through your cutting machine.


Step 4

Remove the post it tape and stamp your message on the upper area. I used VersaMark and embossing powder in Gold to stamp my message. It is an image included on the stamp set Happily Ever After from The Rabbit Hole Designs.


Step 5

Resize your layer and paste it directly over the card base. If you want to add more decorations or details you can do it before to paste the decorated layer on to the card base.

Design a Beautiful Floral “Congratulations” Card for a Wedding

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Design a Beautiful Floral "Congratulations" Card for a Wedding. Using Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray - Sweet Plum, Potter's Clay.

One of the advantages of the watercolor technique is that you will never obtain two identical pieces, but with Fireworks you can still have a lot of control and keep your design just the way that you want. Today, I will show how easy it is to use the watercolor technique to make a wedding card.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour + dry time

Directions


Step 1

Stamp the sentiment over watercolor paper using Memento Tuxedo Black. I used a Congratulations stamp from the Every Day Sentiments stamp set by Joy Clair. Here I used my trusty Misti stamping tool to position the sentiment.


Step 2

Take a detailed stencil and secure it over your watercolor paper. I used the Glorious Petal Stencil by Hero Arts. With a palette knife apply the Creative Medium in Clear careful not to cover the “Congratulations” stamped area with the medium. As soon you finish, remove the stencil and wash it with warm water and let the Creative Medium on the paper dry.


Step 3

In a separate piece of watercolor paper stamp the flower images using VersaMark and coat with White Embossing Powder. I used one flower included on the stamp set “Love is in the Air” from Dare 2B Artzy. To decorate my project I used three flowers. Heat set embossing powder.


Step 4

Here is where the magic happens! Color the flowers using the Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in your favorite colors with a paint brush to obtain the watercolor effect. For me, the best way to color was creating two spots of spray ink on my mat, one mixed with water and other undiluted. I used two different colors on my flowers, Sweet Plum and Potter’s Clay. But using the two dilutions you can achieve variance and depth in your image.


Step 5

Paste the stenciled layer over a color layer and add ink splatter with the spray stick of the Fireworks directly over the stenciled design. If you want you can also use a paintbrush. Splatter the ink as little or as much as you feel.


Step 6

Finalize your card by pasting the watercolor flowers over the stenciled design using double-sided foam tape or dimensionals. Adhere the decorated layers to a card base.
