Hemp Wedding Card

 

The instructions were to make a rustic, country feel wedding card, using teal hemp twine – and by
the end of the month, please! This gate fold card is the result.
The papers used have a sheen on them and are in shades of cream and light beige, with one
paper having a small damask pattern to compliment the other one, which is striped. The edges
were shaded in brown ink to give a rustic look. The hearts were die cut in shiny embossed teal
colored paper and thin craft cork, while the cream bunting was also die cut. The horseshoes and
cacti were stamped in brown.

 

The damask patterned paper was used for the centre inside panel and brown craft card stamped
with horseshoes and tiny sprays of flowers was used for the side panels. Teal colored hemp twine
was used for tying the card together. A die cut shape was included for writing a personal message
of congratulations inside the card.
The card was tied together with two lengths of teal hemp twine, which were attached to a punched
hole each side of the gate fold. The twine was long enough to wrap loosely around the card and
tie in a bow at the back, still allowing the card to stand up, or tied at the front in a longer flowing
bow.

 

 

 

 

Doodled and Watercolored Flower Card

The flowers on this card are created by using a very wet paint brush to pick up watercolor and literally blob it in three places on a white card. When dry, draw a wiggly line from each flower head using a waterproof black pen. Draw in fun shaped leaves, paint lightly in green. Doodle centres and outlines. Tie a bow in a length of hemp twine and attach to a stem, then doodle a line around the edge of the card to finish.

With Love to You Bunny Card

The female rabbit watering her garden was stamped in brown on a square piece of card and then painted with a variety of different makes of watercolour pens. The card was backed with bright yellow paper and fixed to a slightly larger square card. The sentiment ‘with love to you’ was stamped on a small tag with a small length of bakers twine attached. The tag and card were outlined with in brown faux stitches.

Too Much of a Good Thing Card

The background pattern for this card was made by randomly stamping small flowers and leaves in pastel colours onto a piece of white card, then cutting it into two triangles and fixing to the top and bottom corners of a rectangular card.  The words were stamped in pink, the card trimmed to size and the corners rounded with a corner punch.  A piece of hemp twine was wrapped round the card and tied in a bow before attaching it to the centre of the card with sticky pads to give the card depth.  A deep pink pen was used for the faux running stitches.

Experiment with any small stamps you may have of your own, you will be amazed at what you create!

Three different types of twine* were then wrapped around each corner and fixed in place with tape, before being attached to the card front.  The circle design was then attached, die cut letters were used for the simple message and the design was finished with some stick on pearls and some doodling with a pen.

*Twines used were pale pink and white 1mm bakers twine, Cotton Candy 1mm hemp metallic bakers twine and 1mm teal hemp cord.
