DIY: Make a card for the bridal couple

Do you love getting your craft on? Make a handmade card for the bridal couple with these few simples steps. It’s a little mod, a little now, and lots of fun. You can even personalize it with customized names to add an extra touch.

Materials: kraft paper card set (I bought mine here), black paper, white paper, gold pen (I use this gold Sharpie), glue (I used this scrapbooker’s glue), scissors, black pen, ruler

Step 1: Cut out very small circles from white paper for the strand of pearls. I made 3 about the same size and then 4 smaller ones.

Step 2: Cut out a bow tie from the black paper. The more uneven the better to give it a quirky quality.

Step 3: (optional) To spice up the background, I added diagonal gold lines. Use a ruler for extra precision.

Step 4: Write in “bride” and “groom” or their names for a personal touch.

DONE! Fun and easy, right?!
