A Heartfelt Love Wedding Card

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I have a card that has taken some time to make as I was looking for the right embellishments on it.  This is a gatefold card that was inspired by Emma Lou Beechy from Heartfelt Creations when the Heartfelt Love collection was released last November.  I have embellished the card with Arianna Blooms and Wildwood Floral flowers and the leaves are from the Classic Leaf stamp and die set.  I have used iCraft flower making cardstock which is amazing to use for creating flowers and even making leaves.  I love the Ranger Archival inks and have used them to colour all the embellishments here.

I hope you have enjoyed this card.  Watch out for another beautiful Butterfly Dreams card on Wednesday.

Elegant Wedding Card

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I would like to share a card that I have just completed.  I have just got in the new 3D embossing folders from Crafter’s Companion and I love this embossing folder – Ornate Lace.  The Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses in vellum complement the folder perfectly and I have nestled the rings from the Classic Wedding Roses stamp and die set amongst the flowers for a lovely and elegant wedding card.  I struggled with putting a sentiment on and ended up die cutting the congratulations out of gold foil card.

Cardstock – Heartfelt Creations White Cardstock, Gold Foil cardstock

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Classic Wedding Roses

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Classic Wedding Roses, Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sentiment One

Inks – Brilliance Pearlescent Coral, Memento Bamboo Leaves, Colorbox Frost White, Versamark

Instructions:

Base Card – cut a piece of white cardstock at 10″ x 7″, score and crease along the long side at 5″ to create a base card of 5″ x 7″.  Cut a piece of white cardstock at 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and emboss using the embossing folder.  Adhere to the front of the card.

To make the flowers stamp the images from the Classic Rose stamp set with the Frost White and heat emboss with the white embossing powder.  Colour the back of the images with the Pearlescent Coral and die cut.  I have pleated the flowers and then adhered them together with the Dries Clear glue.  Add Simply White Nuvo Drops to the centres and let dry.

To make the leaves stamp the image from the Classic Rose stamp set in Frost White and heat emboss with the white embossing powder.  Sponge with Bamboo Leaves ink on the back and die cut with the coordinating die.  I have lightly folded the leaves for dimension.

Add the leaves and roses to the card front as shown.

Stamp the rings image from the Classic Wedding Roses stamp set in Versamark ink and heat emboss with the gold embossing powder.  Die cut with the coordinating die and add Crystal Clear glitter to the diamond.  Nestle the die in the flowers as shown.

Die cut the sentiment from the Spellbinders Sentiments One die in gold foil cardstock and adhere to the bottom right with Dries Clear glue.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting

Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock 10” x 7”, score at 5” inches to fold and make the base card.  Cut a piece of white cardstock to 5” x 7” and then using the leafy edge from the Delicate Border Basic set die cut each end of the cardstock.  Cut a piece of patterned paper 5” x 6” and using the plain cutting edge and the stitch edge from the Classic Border Basics die cut the edges.  Cut an oval out of the centre of the patterned paper.

To create the frame die cut the large oval from the Floral Oval set.  Die cut another two of the same oval but this time using the Spellbinders Oval die cut the centre out and adhere the two pieces together.  Adhere to the base floral oval with foam tape for depth.  Adhere the patterned paper oval into the centre and then adhere the entire frame to the base card.

To make the flowers and branches I have stamped the images from the Flowering Dogwood and Flowering Dogwood & Doves sets with Colorbox Frost White ink and embossed with Ranger Bridal Tinsel on vellum.  Colour the back of the images with Bamboo Leaves and Angel Pink.  Die cut and using the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and leaves.  Add the Lettuce Entertain You Prills to the centre of the flowers.Cut the fronds of the branches in half and arrange around the oval frame.  Place the flowers as shown in the card.

To make the dove stamp the image twice from the Flowering Branches set with Colorbox Frost White on vellum and emboss with Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder. Colour the back of the image with the white ink and then die cut.  Shape using the Deluxe shaping kit and adhere to the centre of the frame with Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive.  Add the second dove over top and fold the wings until they stand out for depth and dimension.

Paint all the flowers and dove with the Spectum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay for a lovely sparkly finish.

Finally die cut the tag using the Luggage, Tags and Labels die and adhere to the card.
