Boxed Wedding Card
Recently one of the ladies that comes to my Beachmere Class asked me if we could make a special wedding card with a matching box. I was happy to oblige and this is what we made.
I cut a heart in Basic Black card using one of the Hearts Framelits Dies and then embossed using the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder. The embossed Basic Black card is attached to Whisper White card which is embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and then scored and folded Basic Black card. I cut Old Olive card using the Little Leaves Sizzlit (retired) and attached them to the left hand side of the heart cut out. I punched Cherry Cobbler three times each using the 1-3/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch, the 1-1/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch and the 7/8″ Scalloped Circle Punch. I used my bone folder to distress the scalloped circles until I could separate each one into two layers. The pieces were scrunched up tightly, opened and stacked on a Silver Brad (retired) before being scrunched up and opened out to resemble flowers. The flowers are attached over the leaves using Glue Dots. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments but I wanted it to be larger than the size of the stamp image, so I used My Digital Studio to print them onto Whisper White card. The greeting has a hand cut “v” in each end and is attached using dimensionals.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder, attached a strip of Basic Black card along one long edge before attaching it to the Whisper White panel on the inside of the card. I cut a small heart from Cherry Cobbler card using one of the Hearts Framelits Dies which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing folder before attaching is over the embossed Whisper White card.
We created a box using our Envelope Punch Board and decorated it in the same manner as the card only I used the congratulations from the Embellished Events stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink to create it. The back of the box is held together with another small embossed Cherry Cobbler heart.
The lady who requested the card was extremely happy because the Cherry Cobbler colour matched the colour of the Wedding Invitation, a happy co-incidence, because Black, White and Red wedding cards are my favourite.
Unfortunately some of the product I used in the card and the box are on the Retiring List, so be sure to check to see if they are still available.
I have had lots of new likers both on my blog and on my Facebook Page so I thought I would celebrate by sharing the tutorial for this Boxed Wedding Card. You can download it by clicking here or visit my Free Tutorials page. I’d love to hear what you think.
Bye for now,
