A fairytale wedding card for a fairytale wedding? It sure is! Creative Embellishments chipboard helped this fairytale card come true.
Jennifer Snyder here with an oversized but absolutely charming idea for a card that makes a giant romantic statement. Scroll down and I will show you my tips for turning Creative Embellishments Triptych
into a statement piece.
These are the chipboard pieces I used to create this magical card or tabletop decor piece.
Here is a close up of the graceful Bride Groom Couple
. They were simply painted with an acrylic white wash ( white paint thinned with water). After the paint wash dried, I sprinkled some embossing powder onto the couple and heat set them.
I did not cover the couple completely with embossing powder.
This is a view of the front of the card.
When the card is closed, it is a bit thick because of the chipboard layers inside the card.
I have made some allowances in the thickness when I was building the card.
has lovely intricate edges. It is a large piece, standing 8 inches tall and 12 inches wide when assembled and opened.
Scroll down and I’ll show you how I assembled the side flaps.
Here’s How to Assemble the TriptychAs mentioned above, the triptych is thick when chipboard is layered inside and the card is closed. Allowances need to be made if using this as a card or decor that will be closed.
You certainly do not want your beautiful work crushed.I cut a flap that was then scored and folded. See in the photos below, I added these flaps BEFORE my background paper was added. These are going to act like hinges. I have allowed for 1/4inch thickness.
Once the flaps or hinges are added, you can finish covering with paper. This set just hides the flaps and cleans up the card.
I chose to place the decorative edges on the inside of the card so that when it was opened, it looked finished and cohesive.
My treatments on the edges was quite simple. I used a sea sponge to dab an acrylic white wash (acrylic paint mixed with water) onto the chipboard. The sponge is great to use when you do not want total coverage.
I used the Vine Corner
to decorate the inside of the card. I simply embossed the piece and cut into pieces to create a garden look throughout the entire piece.
Here are a few more images to share.
The front of the card is adorned with the following chipboard:
The graceful Archway Style 1
is like the gate that greets the bride and groom as they walk into the garden for their ceremony. I thought it was a perfect fit for the shape of the triptych.
My paper choice for this project is Scrapperia.
