Wedding Bells

Hello Again Crafty Friends!

I have for you a sweet card that would be perfect for a bridal sower, wedding, or anniversary.

For this project, I started my background piece on watercolor paper using Brilliant Red Colourcraft Crystals.  After that dried, I added some Gesso using the Mandala Stencil across the center.  I also used some Versamark ink and the same stencil to add some superfine silver glitter from the ‘Silver Fiesta’ bling pack.

I used a sticker from the ‘Marriage Bells’ sticker pack for the cake image and the little flower and heart images.  I added one of the super cute butterflies that I painted with cream coloured chalk paint and more of the fine glitter.

The large flower needed some silver glitter as well so I added that to change the colour of the center from the original shade.

For the Love Story greeting, I used a piece of the primed chipboard “Wedding Bells” and coloured it using walnut cream chalk paint.  Before adhering it to my card, I added some of the silver metallic wax for contrast.

Lastly, I added some embellishments using some of the bright silver mirror pieces from the ‘Bling Fiesta’ pack and also some Pearl Drops in both – Dew Drop and Candy Glaze.

All of this was mounted to a light grey card base.

I hope you enjoyed my love story card and perhaps try some of these ideas on a project of your own.  Thank you for reading!  Enjoy!

Dyed Moire Silk Placecards

There are many ways to save money when planning a wedding, and beautiful place cards for your wedding seating chart are no exception. This step by step tutorial will guide you through the steps to create elegant, hand dyed silk table frames that are perfect for use as place card holders, but can also be made into ornaments, used in scrapbook layouts, or used as small photo frames.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1. Lay the placecards on paper towels or craft rags that can be dyed. Spray liberally with Color Splash.

Step 2. When the Color Splash alcohol ink has dried, use hot glue to adhere flowers around the frame’s opening, as shown. Note the way that the color has absorbed into the silk surface of the placecard frame. It has the look of watercolor that is so trendy right now!

Step 3. Continue adding flowers in a configuration that is pleasing to your eye. Blending different varieties of Little Birdie Crafts flowers creates a beautiful look.

To complete the place cards, just script the names using the black fine point marker, and display on place settings or at a seating chart display at your event.

It’s easy to create this look in any color scheme with the vast array of beautiful paper flowers and embellishments at Little Birdie Crafts!
