For the Bride & Groom

My mother in law asked me to make a wedding card for a wedding she's going to in July.  When she asked, I knew I had to use this set from the Summer Mini, Blissful Bride.  I love this set, it is just so beautiful. 
Wood - 118527 - $28.95 / Clear - 120036 - $22.95

This card is 5-1/4 x 5-1/4.  Wedding cards are always a little nicer when they're bigger than the typical size card.  Don't forget the inside! 

Here's what I did:

  1. Stamp dress on Confetti White card stock.

  2. Using the bouquet stamp, stamp around the edges. 

  3. Watercolour the flowers, sash, and around the dress using an Aquapainter and Pretty in Pink ink.

  4. Colour flower centres with Basic Gray marker.

  5. Mount on Basic Gray card stock.

  6. Using Basic Gray Marker and Pretty in Pink Marker, colour "For the bride and groom" stamp.  Huff on stamp and stamp on Confetti White card stock.

  7. Punch out with Designer Label Punch.

  8. Emboss Pretty in Pink card stock with Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

  9. Using the Eyelet Border Punch, punch Whisper White card stock.

  10. Paste white border to Designer Series Paper.  Paste sentiment to this piece.

  11. Place Hodgepodge Hardware over sentiment.  Paper Pierce holes for brads, poke through.

  12. Paste embossed Pretty in Pink card stock, Whisper White border, and the Designer Series Paper to the gray card.

  13. Wrap Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon around card twice.  Tie a bow by wrapping White Taffeta Ribbon around looped pink ribbon.

  14. Pull Taffeta Ribbon through Silver Ribbon Slide.  Tie in a knot.

  15. Using Dimensionals, adhere wedding dress.

  16. Apply Dazzling Diamonds with 2way Glue Pen.

  17. Using Big Shot, cut out butterflies.  Adhere to card.
