A few large design elements, paired with a plethora of small touches, makes this card a beautiful way to send wedding wishes! Designer Evgenia Petzer shows here how a three step layering process can produce a beautiful card.
The first step is the patterned paper background. Two designs of patterned paper were blocked together to make the background, with a few touches of distressing and a stitched border.
The second step is to place the large design elements: the butterflies and flower, and the sentiment. The butterflies were “fussy cut” out of patterned paper from the same Inkido collection that the background was created from.
And finally, the small touches are added. The various different gems and rhinestone elements that are scattered around the card’s front add the finishing touch to the design and make it look really put together.
Supplies | Patterned Paper: Inkido (Beautiful Memories). Butterflies: Handcut from patterned paper (Inkido). Flowers: Prima (Bel Canto), unknown. Gems: Kaisercraft, Inkido. Font: B52.
