Weddding Card by Chris

Ever since Kim has gotten in the American Glitter paper I have been finding different ways to use them. This card could be a wedding card from the bride to the groom or any other occasion that warrants a tuxedo, but it was actually created for my mom to give as a gift to my nephew on his wedding day. She needed a card that she could fit the US savings bonds she’s collected for him over the years; so the card base is one 11 x 8.5 sheet of white cardstock, scored at 5.5 to fit an A8 envelope (5.75 x 8.75). Red cardstock (left over from Valentine’s Day embossed with hearts) was cut and glued on to cover the base.

I then used Inkscape to trace a tuxedo jpeg and brought it into SCAL to cut. (I know you can trace in SCAL, but I am a bit faster at it in Inkscape.) I made a shirt piece out of the white glitter paper, the lapels from the silver, and the jacket, pocket and bowtie from the black glitter paper. I hand cut a handkerchief to peek out of the pocket. I used my 1/8 of an inch ScorTape to adhere the pieces together. I find that works best when adhering the glitter paper together. I then used black stickles to put shirt buttons and one button on the jacket. Next I created the sentiment in SCAL. I used Wrexham Script and cut it from white cardstock, sponged the cardstock with versamark, sprinkled silver embossing powder over it, and used my heat tool to set. I repeated that step three times to get a really rich tone of silver. Had a leftover heart from Valentine’s Day too so I embossed that and added it to the card. I hope she likes it. For your pleasure I’ve attached the svg of the sentiment and the svg and scut of the tux. I’d love to see what you create.
