This handmade wedding card idea came from an ebook that features lots of sketches. For this project, I altered the original sketch a little bit but kept most of the foundation of the design.
It's really a simple design where I found a black and white paisley pattern paper and used pink as the accent color.
For my handmade wedding card, I used a black sticker that said "Mr & Mrs" in white ink and it blended in nicely with the black paper.
On my wedding card designs, I try to keep the same foundation of the sketch but sometimes I alter it a bit. For my card, I made the white border around the pink paper thinner and I put my sentiment on the bottom of the pink strip instead of on the pink strip.
Experiment with border punches when making wedding cards. I used a decorative border punch on black paper and it pops when taped in front of white paper.
I added pink adhesive gems to give it a little bit more sparkle. Wedding card designs can be simple or elaborate and that's where your creativity can shine.
You can't go wrong when making handmade wedding greeting cards. The bride and groom will appreciate the effort.

For this homemade card, I used the same sketch as the wedding card above but changed a few details.
I extended the scallop border of the card to the end of the bottom and made the cream border strip thicker than on the wedding card. I also added a sticker and brad instead of ribbon and gems.
Here's another handmade card using sketch #49 from ebook 50 Card Making Sketches.
You can make the card simple or more complicated. I chose to make it simple whereas the sketch had more layers of paper.
