LOVE - Wedding Card

A very dear friend of mine recently got married and I wanted to make her a special wedding card. She had told me her colors were turquoise and brown so I decided to make the card match the colors of the wedding.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Wedding & George Carts
Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls & Swiss Dots folders
Martha Stewart Buttefly Punch
Mica Stardream Cardstock
Organza Ribbon
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Michaels Wedding Confetti
Hot Fix Crystals
Sugar Loaf inside sentiment

I looked through my wedding sentiment stamps, which was so easy to do now that I have my stamps all cataloged and organized, and found one that I thought went well with the Cricut cuts I wanted to use. The stamp is from Sugar Loaf See D's and they are no longer in business. I added a few of the wedding flower confetti pieces to help the inside look a little more festive. I used a dot of Liquid Pearls in the centers.

I did a lot of layering on this card and using a thin mounting foam helps add dimension without adding too much bulk. Since I was hand delivering this card at the wedding I wasn't too worried about it being a little thicker than normal.

The top layer of the "LOVE" was ran through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder after it was cut with the Cricut. 

You can't tell in the pictures but I double layered the butterflies and then added a small piece of mounting foam under the wings to help them stay up. Hot fix crystals in sizes 3mm and 2mm were added for the body of the butterflies. The charm came from Walmart and I found them on clearance sometime ago and this was my first chance to use one of them.

To keep the ribbon and charm on the card I used some Terrifically Tacky Tape on the bow and the back of the charm.

My friend absolutely loved the card and since she knows I make cards I knew there was no way I would get away with buying her a wedding card! I did make two extra of these to have on hand, you know me...never make just one!


  1. Okie, your wedding card is truly beautiful. So much extra care and love went into it, I can only imagine how happy your friend was to receive it.
