It was my parent’s wedding anniversary last week. They are avid jigsaw doers so we bought them a couple of new ones, one of which is Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. That will keep them busy a while!
To coordinate with their gifts, I decided on a jigsaw-based card. I’ve made similar cards with hearts as the bride and groom. I used my Cricut to cut out the pieces.
For the ‘bride’, I dry embossed the piece and added a pearl necklace before gluing the 4 pieces together.
For the ‘groom’ I chopped off the bobble, then cut down the centre and folded back the two triangles to form the lapels of the jacket. I drew on the buttons with a white gel pen and the bow-tie is a small piece of ribbon with a knot tied in it. The pieces were glued together, adding in a white layer for the shirt.
I like clean and simple background for these style cards so I simply scored a frame from the reverse and then added my greeting using black ink and clear embossing powder. I prefer this to black embossing powder as I think it gives a sharper image. This was mounted on a black mat layer.
Finally, I adhered the jigsaw pieces onto the card using some thin foam squares.
