I have something a little different for you today, I have been asked to make a card for a family member who is attending a Handfasting. A Handfasting is an age old Celtic Wedding Ceremony, where they tie the hands of the Bride and Groom together with ribbon which I assume is where the expression ‘tying the knot’ comes from. I didn’t have a clue how to approach it but in the end this is what I came up with and I hope the person I made it for will like it.
I cut the hands from a pale peach colour card and heavily sponged the edges with antique linen ink then cut the finger nails with cream card and sponged with tattered rose ink. I layered the hands and fingers with 3d foam pads wrapping the ribbon as I went then added the whole front piece to the card base.
Here is your cut file – formats included are ai, dxf, gsd, pdf, studio & svg:
