Tuesday Tutorial - Love & Marriage Card

Hi Everybody,

Today's card is really a simple wedding card that will fit into an envelope. I have used the Love and Marriage Additions set that is part of the "Christina Collection"  The dies are now back in stock and they are available only from Craft Stash
Supplies Used:

  • Complete Card & Box Die Set
  • Love & Marriage Additions
  • Silver Card from Craft Stash
  • White Card from Papermill Direct
  • Silver Organza Ribbon from Mei Flower
  • Silver and White Wedding Day Ribbon from Deco Fun Bow Maker
  • Silver Twine from my stash
  • Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue from Craft Stash
  • Foam tape from Craft Stash

  • Instructions:

    With  white card and the card element to the die set create your Tent Fold Base card 
    Cut another layer with the Stitched Mat die
    From the Filigree Heart in the Love & Marriage set cut as many hearts as you will need to add to the stitched mat.  Glue in place allowing some of them to overhang and trim as needed
    From some Bright Silver card cut a layer that will sit between the base and the stitched mat.
    From the centre of this card cut the larger heart band the Mr & Mrs
    You can also cut the Lock and Key from this piece. Keep the tiny hearts that come from the key and add these to the card front
    Add the white heart panel to the top and once it is layered up no one will know that there is a hole in the card 
    Double wrap these layer with silver organza ribbon and the Wedding Day Ribbon
    Add foam tape to the back and add these to the base card
    Tie a bow with the two ribbons and add the Lock and Key to some silver twine and place in the centre of the knot. 

    And there you have a really pretty card to send to someone on their special day
    Change the colours to suit the wedding day theme. Personalise it with their names or the date of the wedding. The possibilities are endless

    More tomorrow ...

    Hugs xx
