Wedding Card with the Cricut Expression Machine

A very special friend of mine recently married the love of his life in a small ceremony in Southern California and I wanted to make them a wedding card that they would appreciate.  After watching a series of professionally made videos Paul and Jen (involving ninjas, a Glee tribute, and their dog’s version of how they fell in love) were in, and looking at some of their wedding photos, I was inspired to make a card using their wedding colors.

I got the idea for my card design from a photo of a sample card that came with the Cricut cartridge I used.  I used my Sweethearts Cricut cartridge to cut out the shapes and dry embossed the background paper and sanded it.  The ribbon came from an old baby shower invitation I had received and saved to re-purpose someday.  I inked the edges of the cut-out shapes and added sparkling crystals to the flowers as a mini replica of bride’s bouquet.

Check out some fun pictures from Paul and Jen’s wedding!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. I love my Cricut Expression but I wish I didn’t have to keep buying cartridges! Still, I must admit the results are stunning.
