Vintage Wallpaper Wedding Place Name Cards

There is a little more to tell of Cath and Steve’s wedding, besides the waterfall of torrential rain that flooded their bridal table just as they were about to be seated or the fire alarm that interrupted the start of the speeches and couldn’t be turned off until the firemen arrived to flick the ‘off’ switch.  All true.  Trust Canberra to provide a delicious wedding memory.  

But, there are a couple more cards.  Today, I’ve posted the place name cards I made for all the guests.  Again, I used Basic Grey cardstock and Whisper White embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, by now the signature of Cath and Steve’s wedding invitations.  I added a pearl to the centre of the embossed design, and a touch of Pink Pirouette and Baroque Motifs to one corner.

I printed all names on vellum paper and then punched them out using the Scallop Oval punch and I attached each name with Mini Glue dots – perfect because of their transparency.



Well, the honeymoon is over and it’s back to work soon for the bridal couple, but I still have one more card from the wedding to show you.  Check back tomorrow!

Thanks for looking 🙂

The wedding invitation with a touch of pink

So the next leg of my sister’s wedding invitation journey was to add a touch of pink. 

I used the basis of the last invitation – the Baroque Motifs card opening in the middle, and I firstly changed the ribbon to Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon.  And I also used Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous shimmer paper.

Next I stamped the square image from Baroque Motifs in Pretty in Pink and then layered it with vellum stamped with “Together Forever” from Together Forever (retired) in Basic Grey.  And I added lots more pearls! 

And as Cath lives in Canberra and at this point in the creation stage, had not seen any of the cards, except via the photos you are now seeing, I also took pictures of the card open and standing so she could see the space for the actual invitation “to be” inside.  So, this is open …

And standing …

Tomorrow I have another mock wedding invitation with even more pink!

Thanks for looking 🙂
