My oldest granddaughter is getting married in a few weeks and sadly I won’t be able to attend her wedding due to my foot surgery. But I have made a beautiful card that will be in the mail in just a few days, transporting ‘me in spirit’ to the Texas wedding.
Measurements and ‘how-to’:
- Whisper White Thick card stock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, folded and burnished (creased firmly) with a Bone Folder
- Whisper White card stock: 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder, run this piece through the Big Shot
- Attach to card front using “a bunch” of Mini Dimensionals
- Whisper White card stock: 4″ square scrap
- Cut out a Layering Circle framelit piece that will fit just inside the Soft Sea Foam framelit layer
- Using Petal Pink Classic Ink, stamp the triple and double flower clusters
- Use Big Shot and flower cluster framelits to die cut these pieces
- Soft Sea Foam card stock: 4″ x 3″ scrap
- Die cut flower trimmed circle using Floral Framelit die
- Soft Sea Foam card stock: 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Attach to inside of card
- Stamp greeting in circle using Soft Sea Foam Classic ink and immediately sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set using Heat Tool.
- Attach to Soft Sea Foam die cut piece
- Attach Soft Sea Foam piece to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
- Attach Pearl Jewels to center of each Petal Pink flower
- Stamp a greeting of your choice that will fit inside the leaf frame image (stamped in Soft Sea Foam)
- Use coordinating framelit and Big Shot to cut this piece out and attach it to the inside of the card with SNAIL adhesive
- Confession: I saw a greeting I liked, typed it up on my computer, shrunk it to a size that would fit inside the framelit and printed it in a shade of green that wouldn’t clash with my card. Then I stamped the frame around it and die cut it.
- Using Petal Pink Classic Ink, stamp a flower cluster in the lower left corner of the envelope. (I avoid naked envelopes whenever possible!)
I can only hope that the love I put into creating this Wishing you the Best wedding card will cover the disappointment I’m feeling in not being able to attend this first wedding of a grandchild. It’s indeed a milestone.
