The ombre trend seems to be popping up everywhere these days. I used this popular trend to make three cards perfect for wedding season!

 

Card #1

Two Hearts One Love Card

 

 

For this first card, I die cut flower borders using the Fuse Creativity System® in various shades of purple.

Using the Fuse, you can die cut 3 to 4 cardstock borders at once easily, which makes this card very easy to put together.

 

Card #2

card with rings

 

To bring on ombre effect to this second card, I sprayed an aqua mist onto some doilies. I just sprayed a couple of extra times to intensify the color on the darker doilies.

I then layered these doilies onto the card and rounded the top corners to make a quick card.

 

Card #3 

Mr and Mrs card

 

 

One of the easiest ways to create an ombre effect is to use watercolors. Simply choose a color and paint it onto white cardstock, thinning the color with water as you go down. Once the paper has dried, simply punch circles from it to add onto a card. That’s all I needed to do to create this third card!
