Wedding Cards

This is the season for wedding so I have been making a lot of fancy wedding cards too to sell.  I get the base with the matching envelope from Hollo's (local paper store) and decorate them.  I have been selling a lot of these ... in fact all of the ones I am showing you here have been sold already.  They have a pocket to put your monetary gift and I put an extra paper there for the giver to write a message to the couple.  I have used a variety of dies, papers, embellishments  and ribbons for these.
They each have an envelope to match and I decorate the front with a closure the the flap slides into for closure.  So what do you think?  I have a few more I will show you since they are all originals.

Birthday Pivot Card

 Yes more of the pivot cards .... I have made so many and they sell as fast as I make them!!  This one is used stamped words by Our Daily Bread Designs and the little flowers are by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  And the die to make the pivot card is from them also.  Here is the inside of the card.

Pivot Card Dotted Butterfly

For this pivot card I cut the same die twice one for the card front and a second time on a larger dotted paper to match the small dots and then layered them.  The inside of this card is the solid background craft and it looks really nice (forgot to take a photo of it sorry).  The large word stamp is from Paper Smooches and the flowers are one of my most used dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Pivot Get Well Card

Here is another pivot card made with dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs by Karen Burniston.  I am having a lot of fun making and selling these cards!  It is easiest to use double sided paper when making them and they can be made in any size and at any position on your card front.  Below is a photo of the inside so you can see the pivot part.
I used a Spellbinder die for the foliage and an Elizabeth Craft Design die for the lady bugs.  The extra tag at the bottom right is so you can write your message and sign the card.

Pivot Cards - Butterfly

I am really enjoying making these pivot cards using the dies by Karen Burntein through Elizabeth Craft Designs.  This is the butterfly die.  I sold this card in less than an hour after I put it on my table at Willoughby's Farmer's Market!  They are fun and pretty easy to make and the die can be used to make any size card (A2, A6, A9 etc.)  This one is an A2 card.  All of the additional butterfly dies come with the set.  I added the little flowers and leaves which are both Elizabeth Craft Designs also.  Below is the card opened so you can see the whole effect.


The words on the front are by Our Daily Bread Deisgns and the inside words are Hero Arts.  Remember I do sell all of the products you see used on my blog just email me and ask me about them.  I will be having a class on how to make these and different versions of these and the flip-it cards in Aug.
