Detail Floral Wedding Card

Hi Stampers!

My project for today is a wedding card for my godchild, Katie, whose wedding was this past Saturday. Katie and her husband are both police officers on a local force. With all of the recent happenings with our people in blue, it's scary to think of her out there protecting her community because in my mind, having known her since she was a baby, she's the one that needs protecting!

Anyway, I wanted to make an elegant card and the Detailed Floral Thinlits made that job a snap. My first stop for inspiration is always Pinterest, lots of ideas out there, but not exactly what I was looking for.

I used Shimmery White card stock for this project:
4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
4 1/4" x just shy of 5 1/2"
3 3/4" x 4 1/8", scored at 1/2" on the short side
3" x 4 1/8", scored at 1/2" on the short side

Using the scored pieces of card stock, line up the thinlit with the score line and run through the Big Shot. You'll need to use the Precision Plate with this die. The Die Brush will also make using this die much easier.

Burnish your score lines and attach the die cut pieces to the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock.

The pattern on this thinlit has a lot of open space and I don't like being able to see the writing through the paper design, so I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen on the die cut piece on the left side, slipped the additional piece of Shimmery White card stock (4 1/4" and just shy of 5 1/2") behind the diecut piece and adhered it. I also added a few rhinestones for a bit more sparkle!

The sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set that bundles with this die (SAVE 10% with a bundle). I cropped it using the new Sweet and Sassy framelits. 

I slid the die cut piece on the right under the sentiment embellishment and bow to close the card.

Floral Phrases was used to complete the inside of the card.

You could easily incorporate the bridal colors in this card, either in the die cut pieces or the background. This beautiful die makes creating an elegant piece oh so easy.

I hope these tips help. If you have any questions, please comment below.

Until next time, take gentle care,
