I’ve been in­vited to a wed­ding on Christ­mas Eve. Please can you help me with a suit­ably fes­tive wed­ding card?

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a - Jane Marston, Here­ford

Dorothy says: Most wed­dings seem to take place in spring or sum­mer, so it’s a lovely chal­lenge to cre­ate a lux­ury card with a fes­tive feel. Wed­ding cards are re­ally spe­cial and so I’ve gone slightly sub­tle but with a def­i­nite win­ter feel, adding a wreath to bring in the fes­tive look. I chose a lovely wreath stamp that in­cludes the ‘With love’ greet­ing and em­bossed both in sil­ver em­boss­ing pow­der. Die-cut­ting the cir­cles makes a beau­ti­ful frame that can be off­set on the base to add in­ter­est to the de­sign. Deer are very on-trend for wed­dings as well as Christ­mas, and so these lit­tle wooden mo­tifs, heat em­bossed with glit­ter pow­der, look stun­ning. Fin­ish the card with a se­cond sen­ti­ment stamp. I chose sub­tle colours for the wreath, us­ing ProMarker pens, then ‘dyed’ the rib­bon with the same ProMarker colours so that it all matches ex­actly. The pa­pers and deer are from the Hob­by­craft Frozen Wishes col­lec­tion and the stamps are also from Hob­by­craft stores.
