Wedding Card Featured on Daytime TV Show

By August 27, 2013Blog

Hey Everyone!

Hope you enjoyed our segment with Jerry Penacoli and Cyndi Edwards on the Daytime TV Show, which aired today.

Here are the materials and instructions for this very simple yet elegant design for a card for someone who is getting married. You could even use it as a design for invitations if you wanted it’s an inexpensive yet elegant looking design.


1. PAPER: Red glittered paper (for the small heart between the doves)

A printed damask design in grays. Black and white can look really nice as well. Cut at approx 7 inches long x 3.5 inches.

Three 7 inch x 1 inch wide strips of paper. I used Black and Bazzil Stormy and Smoky for the grays. The whole idea is to create an ombre (faded from light to dark effect)

2.GLUE: Martha Stewart Glue stick and Glue pen

3. PUNCHES: Martha Stewart Confetti Heart and Vintage Dove

4. Flat-back crystals or pearls

5. Pop-dots (adhesives)

When gluing the strips I went from the lightest to the darkest on the bottom. The lighter shade always glued on top of the darker one.

Blog 2Punch your doves but be careful if you are using textured paper to flip one of them over. (see photo below)

Blog 3With your glue pen go ahead and attach the flat back crystals or pearls onto the bride.

Blog 5Trace (always on the backside) and cut out your heart.

Blog 6Punch out your little heart with the Confetti Heart Punch.

Blog 7Lastly flip your doves and hearts on the reverse side and attach the Pop dots of foam squares and assemble your card.

Blog 8Here is your finished product. Don’t be afraid to get creative and change the color of the heart to the color of the bridal party or all together change the whole color theme to the brides colors.BlogSimply find¬†paper that you’d love to use and you are good to go! Would love some feedback or pictures of your finished product. Feel free to go to my Facebook page @

Have a great rest of the week and thanks for stopping by!

    I am a new card maker – I started in July. I saw your segment on the Daytime T V Sow that aired today. It was so much fun with many ideas that has not occured to me. I will be headed out to purchase the dove and heart punches. I wish you had more time to show more. Something to think about, get a group of crafters like stampers, quilters etc., that have your talent and enthusiasim together and do a weekly TV show that we can count on being shown once a week at a certain time. You could also have your line of favorite supplys and where they may be purchased . You have my VOTE
