My beautiful niece got married this summer. I made several wedding cards for family members to give. Today I’m sharing a quick & easy card to hold a check or cash.
I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. My niece loves pink and not only were the bridesmaids dresses a pretty soft pink, her bouquet (made by my talented sister) had a touch of pink too!
This card is simple to make using two of my favorite tools, the Stampin’ Trimmer and the envelope punch board. Many thanks to Amy Koenders for the inspiration for this card. Start with a 7 x 8 1/2 piece of DSP (or cardstock) and score along the long side at 3 and 6. (I love that the Stampin’ Trimmer cuts and scores!) Next, use the envelope punch board and line up the shorter side at 3 1/2 and punch on the side with the score line closest to it. Line up the notch with the cutting point on your trimmer and cut from the edge to the notch on just one side.
Fold on the score lines and add sticky strip along the sides of the pocket. Stamp a sentiment on the inside. I used the Floral Phrases stamp set and Mossy Meadow ink.
To make the belly band cut a 3 1/2 x 7 piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhere it to a 3 3/4 x 7 piece of Gold Foil. Score at 1 7/8 and 5. Fold along the score lines and adhere the ends. Wrap ribbon around and tie a bow. I adhered the dies from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which I cut from Gold Foil and Thick Very Vanilla cardstock. The belly band will slide on and off the card.
No envelope was necessary for this card as it was placed in the card box at the reception. I love these pictures of the happy couple on their wedding day.
Here’s to Happily Ever After!
Wishing you a wonderful day!
