I have no idea how many cards I’ve made. Like you, no doubt, I’ve thrown out cards that just didn’t make me happy. Mostly I’m happy with the end result. This card, however, made my heart happy. I even thought to myself, “this could be me best one, yet!”
I saw a card like this one on Pinterest awhile back and loved it. I tried to find out who had made it but the links didn’t answer that question. I’d love to give credit to that person! If you recognize this card (mine is very similar to yours), please let me know.
I used a Sue Wilson die for the bride and groom. I cut it twice, once in pearlized white and once in black. I used wide, scor-tape behind the wedding dress and burnished Elizabeth Craft micro glitter into both sides of the tape. I was very happy with the result.
I purchased a licensed Silhouette pattern for the gate and cut it from shiny silver cardstock. I think mirror cardstock would have a lovely effect, too.
The flowers were cut with Heartfelt Creations dies, edged in silver stamp paint and shaped. I added cardstock stamens and flat back pearls to the centers. The flowers nestle in a bed of white tulle and cardstock flourishes and are completed with lacy leaves.
This card is a stand-up card accomplished by adding a Tim Holtz easel on the back. I love this type of card. I add a library pocket with insert for hand written sentiments.
The card insert can be seen (sorta 😊 ) in the first photo. Most of my cards are dimensional enough to require something more than an envelope. I make my gift boxes from very heavy cardstock for the bottom, heavy cardstock for the top and embossed transparency stock for the window.
Hope you enjoyed this post and find yourself motivated to get to your craft room! I’d love to hear from you.
