Now onto today's card. There are many different versions of this card online and I knew I had to make one.... My daughter informed me that they had a wedding coming up that they needed a card for. So they asked me if I had some free time to make them one. What perfect timing.... Of course, I said, "yes." I just needed the colors of the wedding party. They informed me they were going with orange and brown. So off I went to make the wedding card. Now, the pictures in this blog sport "purple". I had forgotten to scan the card in before sending it off to them. So I had to make another one for this post. I was very surprised at how easy and fun this card was to make. And it looks so elegant too!
To create this 5" x 7" tri-fold card, cut a piece of 7" x 12" white cardstock. Then score it at 3" (for the bride) and 4" (for the groom).
Adhere a 4" x 7" piece of black cardstock on the right flap of the card.
Cut a triangle out of white cardstock and add two (2) rhinestones. Adhere to the card flap.
The flower is made by folding a purple flower (from the Recollections Floral Embellishments) in half -- and then fold it in half again -- and fan it out a bit. Adhere to left side as the boutonniere.
Cut the edge of the card into the shape of the dress. This of course took some time. So I would work with a template first and then transfer it onto the card. I embossed the cuttlebug "Swirls" on the card by using a rolling pin since the card was to big for my cuttlebug. I left the section in the middle where the ribbon lays blank. I then took some clear glitter glue and went over the swirls.
Finally, cut a slit in the fold of the card and thread 5/8" satin ribbon through the slit and adhere it around the card. Top it with a flower or a rectangular rhinestone. Then finish it by stamping your sentiment in the inside of the card. For your matching envelope you will need a 10" x 10" cardstock. Score at 3 1/4" and 4 1/4".
