One of my husband’s friends got married this weekend, and I was excited to create a card for the couple. As I’ve done with past wedding cards, I borrowed design elements from the invitation to use in my creation.
I created the patterned paper for this card by making the design in Adobe Illustrator and printing it on cream-colored cardstock. The black, magenta and cream are the colors of the invitation, and the pattern of the black hearts mimics a bold, modern font that the couple used. The design has repetition not just in the patterned paper, but also in the use of multiple chipboard arrows. I love using chipboard elements because they are an easily customizable embellishment and a quick way to add dimension. I also got to play with paint mist again, and I’ve really liked the outcomes with these paints, though the process can be messy.
