We’re all about occasions at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week. I chose to make a wedding card as my design team project, using stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.
I started by working on my card base. I chose a yellow card base, and stamped a tone-on-tone pattern across it using the bird couple from Lawn Fawn‘s Happy Wedding stamp set. I used a small heart from the same set to fill in some of the gaps in my pattern.
I then took a snippet of white card and started working on my focal panel. I used stamps from the same set to add my sentiment and images, choosing to use the individual birds this time rather than the couple as I felt it better fit what I wanted to do.
I used my alcohol markers to colour in the little birds, keeping them yellow to coordinate with the card base. I chose a pale blue for the female bird’s flower to provide an extra pop of colour. Blue is complementary to yellow, being opposite on the colour wheel. I then die cut the panel using a Lawn Fawn oval die and adhered it to my card base with foam tape.
I am happy with this card. It’s very cheerful and makes a fun wedding card. Often wedding cards are made to be elegant, which I do like, but I think sometimes it is good to do something a bit different. The tone-on-tone stamping adds a bit more interest to the card without detracting from the focal panel.
