Elegant Wedding Card ~ Here’s to Love from Stampin’ Up!
I made this wedding card for my niece’s recent wedding. I love making homemade cards so you can use images and sentiments that capture the wishes you want to convey. After a long wait to get married because of COVID, when my niece finally got married this month, I wished her day was filled with joy and love, so this sentiment from the Heartfelt Hexagon Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was perfect. If you watch the video below, you can see how I used the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set on the envelope too.
Here’s a picture of my beautiful niece and her new husband on their wedding day.
I showed how I made this card in this video, which you can watch HERE.
I wanted an elegant look to the wedding card (what better time to be elegant than a wedding?), but I also wanted the card to be simple and easy to make.
The first way to make a card look elegant is to do heat embossing. An embossed greeting always looks elegant on any card. I embossed the greeting with Silver Embossing Powder from the Stampin’ Up! Metallics Embossing Powders Collection.

I punched out the greeting with the brand new Hexagon Punch (find it and the matching stamp set in the Online Exclusives section of my Stampin’ Up! store). Then, to make a layer for the punched-out saying, I punched another hexagon from the Silver Foil cardstock (also only available online). I then used my Paper Snips scissors to cut the Silver Hexagon in half and added each half to either end of the saying. The silver layer has a slight gap, but that is where I added the ribbon.
I originally bought the Here’s to Love stamp set for my niece’s wedding card as I loved the bride and groom image. I made those images almost more of the background to the card by stamping the images with Smoky Slate ink on Smoky Slate cardstock.
Another way to make a wedding card look elegant is to add a gorgeous ribbon, like this Silver & White Sheer Ribbon from Stampin’ Up! The ribbon almost has the look of a bride’s veil. The silver edging on the ribbon also matches the silver embossing and Silver Foil Paper.
I added a very pretty Patterned Vellum (Vellum Basics) behind the Bride and Groom layer to add elegance to the wedding card. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but the vellum has a pretty leaf pattern.
The final two elements I added to the wedding card were rhinestone gems and the pretty 3D flower. I punched out the parts of the flower from Basic White cardstock (I wanted to stick to the White and Silver theme for an elegant look) from the Petal Park Builder Punch. I used the stylus end of the Take Your Pick Tool and a Foam Mat to slightly curl the edges of the petals in (watch the video for the full how-to). Then, I attached the flower layers with several sizes of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
