Wedding card Round 2

Another test card, this time a little more to it.


Someone said thay wern't sure where leaves come into my thoughts for a wedding card so i'll try to explain my thoughts on it.


Leaves form part of most bouquets and supply the greenery, I could have choosen hearts but I figured that would not be unusual, the other thing that draws myself to leaves is that to me leaves and trees symbolise life. The other reason is purely design value if I'd chosen,swiss dots, damask, birds and swirls, or most other embossing folders the question would still apply.

Not sure where the leaves come in with a wedding, I'd have thought horseshoes, hearts or flowers would be more suitable. I love the simplicity of this though and I really like the wedding rings hanging from the bow. I really like this one.

Zia said...

I'm with Tig on this, I don't see what leaves have to do with a wedding? I love the simplicity of this card and the bow and rings finish it off really well. Very classy!

Hi Jak,
I think this one is perfect. I liked the last one, but suggested the embossing. Now that you've come up with this one, its surely a winner.
I like the leaves as well. Bit different to the norm.
Well done Jak.

Gorgeous Jak! I love the leaves ~jeni :)

Buttons said...

Well given the choice I would go with this one, but both knock spots off anything you could get commercially.
I love your use of the embossed leaves background - you used it with the wedding shoe digi stamp and that is one of my favourite cards ever. Maybe if you decide there are too many leaves you could do what you did with that card and emboss sections of the background?
The colours on this one are far more subtle and really focus attention on the sentiment and ring.
Either way, your cards are classy and unique. Well done Jak x

This is my favourite Jak .. it's stunning xx

Steve Rawles said...

I love them both. For me the choice is about appropriateness to the couple. The first one is very modern and minimalist. The second is more traditional and flamboyant.

This one is my favourite Jak - very ELEGANT and particularly suited to an Autumn wedding. BLove the layout, folders & materials used,it would suit so many occasions (minus the rings etc of course).

I prefer this one - it's beautiful - and who says you can't have leaves on Wedding Invitations - I don't think it's written in stone that you can't - lol!!!!

I've just made some wedding stationery but the bride wanted pink, hearts and bling - so that's what I did - she loves them and she's had lots of lovely comments about them.

Dorcas said...

You know what Jak? This is so stinkin gorgeous! I never would have thought of something so clean and elegant, with that ring and ribbon there, wow its perfect, really beautiful!

ENJAY said...

Well Jak.... I think the 'leaves' remind me of jacquard,which lots of people have for waistcoats or gorgeous fabric shoes! It looks very regal,clean and stylish i love it.

Love both cards, but this one gets my vote.

Hi Jak - this is my favourite, hands down - far more elegant than the first, and more 'you'. I like the leaves too - too much obvious imigry like hearts wouldn't be so classy.

Trish said...

Yes, this is a lot nicer than the first one.

cazzie said...

Never usually comment on blogs but inspired to do so this morning, after all you asked. If I got this one in the post it would be a WOW where as the other would be more of a " that's nice".

cardchick's world said...

Sharon-The OKI StampQueen said...

This is the one! Very elegant yet not too fussy! I adore it. I don't get where people don't get the leaves? Leaves- vines--growing-lives joining, intertwining, changing...makes perfect sense! Your going to haVe to mass produce quickly and this seems easy enough to do--I sense sparks flying from the Big Shot! Blessings, Sharon

Lynn said...

This one is very nice too, but I love the first one!

Caroljenks said...

Jak this is just stunning! The leaves are perfect - I thought the same as you straight away.....life/strength/growing = marriage!

Your bow is perfect - do you use a bow-maker (if so which one as I'm on the lookout for one) and how you have encorporated the rings into it is fab!

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!

Oh I think this is my favourite. Love the layout, the bow and the rings. May I ask where you got the rings from?

Wow! All these wedding cards are beautiful! If I absolutely had to choose, it would be the one with the embossed leaves. Well done!

Meg said...

Beautiful Jak, leaves are stunning stick with it girl, who says that you have to conform strickly to wedding themes, that's why we have creativeness within ourselves to be different and no one else will ever have a card like this.

Crafty_Kitten said...

Love this one but something just doesn't convince me this is the one.
There is something either missing or something too much on it. Not sure which it is. Off to have a look at the last one.
