I made these two beautiful wedding card designs, based on the designs for my wedding shadow box as well as my rainbow wedding shadow box design, so that you can gift the shadow box along with a card - or perhaps just send one of the cards if you don't need to gift...
Each card design is available separately in my Etsy store.
I've also since made the same designs as a 'bride & bride' and 'groom & groom' version of each card - so those are also available, if you want them (look here), and this page will also act as the making instructions for those versions too.
Here, I'll show you both styles and also share on this page how to make each one, to help you decide which is the right choice for you. They're both pretty easy to make, so don't worry - just cut, score, fold, stick and go...
If you're making either the 'bride & bride' or 'groom & groom' version (from this page), it's exactly the same, but the figure design is different for each - just follow along with the same instructions, too...

Both cards are:
This is a lovely, simple and modern card - but very elegant with those flowing curves of dress and hair.
I made the card in a lilac and green which co-ordinates nicely with my wedding shadow box design - I also made it in a very pretty cream and pale blue.
For both these cards, I've used Sizzix textured cardstock for the outer card (the bit with the design) and a lightweight card (generic craft card) for the inner card and envelope - choose a card that's good to write on.
If you'd like to use a dark inner card (or envelope) like I have for the lilac card (dark green inner card), please make sure you have a good pen for writing on dark surfaces. I have a white gel pen ('Gelly Roll' Sakura) and a white paint pen (Uni Posca by the Mitsubishi Pencil Co.) that are both excellent at writing on dark card surfaces (make sure you let your message dry before closing the card).

Or stick around a few minutes longer and check out my next wedding card SVG design with me - this next one is a layered design, created as a topper to stick onto the top of the basic card and I'll share the full craft tutorial to make it...
Shall we check it out..?
You can also see this design in the 'two brides' or 'two grooms' versions, here...
I adore the modern simplicity of the 'Congratulations' cut-out wedding card SVG template, but I also wanted to make something with the lacy design I created for the wedding shadow box project as well as the rainbow wedding shadow box project - and this card is it!
It's made as a 'topper' which goes on top of the standard card template - and it's created in layers. It's still easy to make, but it might take a little longer to make than the 'Congratulations' card as there's more to position and stick. I'm going to show you all the stages a little further down the page...
I think all the layers and the intricate cut-out gives a really luxurious feel to the card design - it's one for the happy couple to cherish and keep!
The wedding card SVG template includes:
The instructions are also good for the 'bride & bride' or 'groom & groom' versions of this layered-style card, which I designed a little after the 'bride & groom' version you can see here, so didn't include in this page - just follow along and substitute the appropriate figures when you reach that part. You can see more colour ideas for the cards on that page!
I've made the wedding card SVG in two different colourways - the soft lemon and green above is my favourite, I think - it's very much a classic wedding card look...
But I do also have a bit of a soft spot for the pretty peach design (below) which I think gives a slightly more contemporary feel.
Please note that I've used a cream card for the lacy design to co-ordinate with the yellow and green - whilst I picked a very pale grey to go with the peach - I think it looked better and to say that it's worth just holding your selected colours together and just seeing if they look well together or if another colour choice would look better...
I do hope that you get creative with your own wedding card making and try out different colour combinations. If you wanted to make it to match the romantic wedding shadow box design, you might want to substitute a lilac cardstock for the yellow, and a cream lightweight card for the inner card and envelope.
I also, since, made the rainbow wedding shadow box design, which this card-style also co-ordinates with - so if you're making that design, think about which colours go with that - - are you making the lemon yellow version? Do you want it to match? Or not?
Also think about your inner card - do you want a co-ordinating colour? A simple white or cream? Something colourful and a bit surprising?
The same for the envelope - I chose for mine to be the same colour as the inner card (which is a very pale blue for the yellow card and a rich peachy-cream for the peach card), which I think always works well and keeps the project feeling cohesive and co-ordinated - but you could choose to co-ordinate the envelope with a different part of the card instead. It's up to you! Have some fun with it!
For this card (both colourways) I've used Sizzix textured cardstock for the outer card and all elements of the layered topper - and a generic lightweight craft card for both the inner card and envelope.
To make the layered wedding card SVG template you will need:
First, you will need to cut out all the pieces for your wedding card SVG template - use your cutting machine for this (or cut by hand if you prefer).
If you're using another file type or cutting machine programme, or if you need to resize PNG files, you can get the dimensions for the files here...
IMPORTANT - you will need to use the cut and score function on your machine to score the fold lines to make the inner and outer cards and the envelope. These are the thin red lines in the image above showing all the layers (the image at the top of this section that says 'Cut and Score') - you can see one score line each on the inner card (soft blue-green) and outer card (yellow) and four in a square on the envelope.
If you are a Cricut user, I have some help with how to score with your Cricut, using one of my basic card templates. You will be able to use the tutorial with this card template, but will just need to add in a couple of (very easy) extra stages...
If you want to manually score your lines, the tutorial can also help you with that.
Once everything is cut and scored, please come back here and we can continue to make the wedding card...
Here, we start with everything cut and ready to assemble - it's really easy to do but I wanted to share my tips and ideas from making the wedding card SVG to help you make it great first time!
The first bit is a really easy bit to start with - but it's kind of nice, too, as it's putting together the happy couple with their background...
Apply glue to the back of the dark grey figures and stick them (fairly centrally) on their cream background. I've used a glue stick. You might just need to wipe away any excess glue seeping through the cuts, very carefully.
This next bit is quite tricky - you just need to glue the blue-green square down onto the front of the yellow card (the right hand side as you look at it) - the tricky bit is getting it straight and in the middle, which I always find surprisingly difficult. Just position it very lightly to start with so that you can wiggle it round a bit and improve its position, if you need to.
Now, we're going to get the happy couple in position - and we're going to use the lacy frame to help us with this...
Pop down the happy couple (don't stick them yet) and also pop the lacy frame over the top (again, no glue yet) - this is so that you can see how the happy couple look against the frame. There's no absolute correct position for them to be in, so just see that they're fairly central and their heads won't be obscured by the pattern.
Then, take away the lacy frame - and eyeball the position the couple are in - we're going to try to put them back in this spot once we've added glue to the back.
So - add glue to the back of the figures and pop them back down where you think they should be - put them down lightly and you can pop the frame back over to check and wiggle them around until they're in the right place - only then press hard to stick them down.
Next, we stick the frame in place - add glue to the back of the lacy frame. I found it best to just add the glue around the outer edges. The frame should still stick well and you get a nice 3D effect with the design slightly loose around the figures.
On the peach card, I ended up sticking the inner edges (with the swirls) down too, as I'd bent one slightly while I was manoeuvring it and it wouldn't stay flat. So you can stick it down if you need to, and it still looks great! Check it out at the end!
Now, we just need to fold the yellow outer card - we do this with the metal rule. Lay the metal rule on the score line, with the ruler on the design side of the card, as below. Fold the other side up towards you, running your fingers along the underside of the fold to keep the fold straight and firm...
Then take away the ruler, and fold the fold back on itself again, so that the card looks the way it should!
Next, we should add in the inner card...
First, use your metal rule to fold along the central score line in the same way as you did for the main outer card - folding once up towards you, pressing your fingers on the underside of the fold to make the fold sharp and straight, then folding back in on itself again. The score line should end up on the outside edge of the fold. I give you more detail on making this fold in this basic card tutorial here.
When you've made your fold in the inner card - just add some glue to one of the sides of the card (on the outer edge of the fold) - the card will insert into the outer card and glue inside it, so make sure your folds match for this! Again, there's more about this in the tutorial here, if you need it.
Glue the inner card inside the outer card - don't go too close to the central fold - give everything room to fold!
We're only gluing one side of the inner card - leave the left hand side of the inner card loose, like in the image below...
Finally, let's make the envelope - use your metal rule in exactly the same way on these score lines.
Then, glue down the edges of the long flap and leave the short flap unglued. There's some more help with folding and gluing your envelope in my basic card tutorial here.
You can add some double-sided sticky tape along the envelope closure flap, ready to seal when you're ready to send the card... This is great if you're making cards to sell! Otherwise, you can just seal it up with glue when you're ready to post, if you like.
And here it is in peach, as I promised to show you it again...
This one has the top swirls of the lacy frame glued down, but not the bottom swirls - you can see the slight difference in effect!
I hope you get creative and have fun making up your own wedding card SVG template - will you go with the lemon and green? Try the peach? Match the happy couple's wedding colours? Or favourite colours? Or put your own unique creative spin on it?
