My cards may not be works of art,
but they are a definitely a labour of love!
I like my cards to look warm and cozy, just like my home. This wedding card, which I created out of a paper lunch bag, has a warm, vintage look. Just a quick note before you scroll down: I usually take a variety of photos of my cards before I send them off to my customers. However, this time, I simply forgot. But, I did take a video which you can view on my Globug Ideas YouTube page. The photos are not perfect, but I hope you enjoy them, nonetheless.
In my stash I found the floral printed flowers for the front of the card and I made the two hot pink ones to add some “pop.” The wedding bands tied together with a bow added a romantic touch, as did the little metal bird cage with the heart on it.
On the inside flap, I tucked a little note card into the pocket for a special hand-written message. The pocket is actually the bottom of the bag in its folded up position. I found an adorable tiny metal picture frame in my “miniatures” jar and inserted a photo of the bride and groom…so darn cute! I printed some vintage roses and cut them out on my Silhouette Cameo (I LOVE my Cameo) and added a gold-framed message. A pretty lace trim made with my Martha Stewart border punch added to the romantic-vintage look.
Here is the teeny tiny photo in the pretty metal frame. Sorry this photo is blurry, but I think you get the idea.
As often as possible, I write the verse or sentiment, myself. It really makes the card so much more personal. The very end of the bag (where your lunch would go) serves as pocket for another note card.
A nice little space to write a thought, memory or best wishes.
The very last thing I put on every Globug Ideas card is my logo. As with every card I make, this one included a custom envelope, decorated with as much attention as the card, itself. Unfortunately, I did not have it made when I shot the video, nor did I remember to take photos of it.
I hope this paper bag card inspires you to try one, yourself. Thanks, so much for visiting Globug Ideas. You can also find more great paper-crafting examples, tutorials and ideas on my Globug Ideas Pinterest page and on my Globug Ideas Facebook page.
