I needed to make a wedding card for a special friend who was married last Saturday – Congratulations Gwen and Jan. I couldn’t go past this one I found on Pinterest by BJ Peters.
I cut Gold Foil card using the small die from the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies and attached it to a layer of Whisper White card and one more layer of Gold Foil. I stamped the greeting from the Floral Phrases Stamp set onto Thick A4 Whisper White card using Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. The Gold Foil panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.
Inside the card I stamped the border image and also the large floral image from the Floral Phrases Stamp set using Versamark ink. Once more they were sprinkled with Gold Embossing powder and heat set.
Since the card was for such a special occasion I felt it needed a special envelope. I used Whisper White card and the Envelope Punch Board to create a card which is the perfect size. I added 3/4″ circles punched from Gold Foil to the back of the envelope with retired gold brads and used some retired gold cord to create a closure. For the front of the envelope I added a layer of Gold Foil and then a layer of Whisper White which has been cut using the large Detailed Floral Thinlits Die.
I love how easy it is to create such beautiful and co-ordinating pieces using the wonderful products from Stampin’ Up! Don’t you?
Bye for now,
