Tuxedo and Gown Wedding Card

Tuxedo and Gown Wedding Card

As I mentioned in my last post, a friend had asked me for an “engagement card tutorial” and showed me two samples she found online and liked. I CASED and came up with two variations of the second design she chose. (The online sample is at the bottom of this post.) My finished cards are 5×7.

I adapted cut files from the Silhouette file #101542 called “Bride and Groom Card” by Nilmara Quintela. For the sample above, I cut and folded the card stock for the tux and changed the shape of the dress to look more like the online sample. For the sample below, I used the tux from the file. “Tracers” were created so she could cut the pieces on her own without an electronic die cutting machine.

My second sample:

The shimmer card stock (2nd sample) is “White Pearl” by The Paper Studio. (It’s actually an off-white but so elegant in real life!) For the first sample, I used plain white and embossed the bottom half of the gown with a 5×7 Damask Background embossing folder by Darice. I also used Gina K Designs Slate and Black card stock.

I aded ribbon to the gowns and adhesive pearls or sequins (no holes) to the tuxes. The greeting is from the “Congratulations Sentiment and Mat” die set from Creek Bank Creations.

(This is the original card that I CASED – found HERE; scroll down in that post)

Thanks for checking out my card projects!
