Wedding Place Card


Hi everyone, Mou here today with a wedding place card tutorial! You can use this process to create place cards for any occasion.

Supplies I used:

Faber-Castell Essential PITT Artist Pen Set - BLACK

Faber-Castell Mixed Media Paper Stencils - 305 (Wedding)

Faber-Castell Collapsible Water cup

Faber-Castell Graphite pencil Goldfaber 1221 HB

Faber-Castell Kneadable Eraser

Gel Paint (from Faber-Castell - 20 Minute Studio - Abstract Art For Beginners)

Palette knife (from Faber-Castell - Mix and Match Collection - Gelatos Tool Set)

Whipped Spackle (or another texture paste)

Cardstock (5x8.5 inches, folded in half to make 5x4.25 inches card)

Paper trimmer


Now, let me walk you through the steps.


Choose a heavy cardstock in the color that suits your color scheme best. I picked grey. Trim the cardstock to 8.5" x 5" and fold in half to make 4.25" x 5" card.

Place the 'celebration' stencil from the Faber-Castell Mixed Media Paper Stencils - 305 (Wedding) set near the bottom edge of the front flap of the place card. Tape it in place if you like. Take out some texture paste with palette knife and apply through the stencil. Let dry.


Use the gold Gel paint from the Faber-Castell - 20 Minute Studio - Abstract Art For Beginners to add some texture dots on your place card as shown. Let dry. This instantly glams up your place card!


Use the Soft Brush PITT pen in black to write the date, name and table number on the card. Underline the words using Superfine tip PITT pen and a ruler.

And that's it - a super quick and easy technique that adds elegance and glamour to your special day!
