I wanted to make an elegant wedding card because I thought that this light purple color with with would look awesome together and guess what? IT DOES!


This card measures 6”x6.5” and I punched the right side edge to give it a bit of an elegant feel to it. I also threaded some ribbon through it. I made some white roses and used the stamped butterflies swirls as my image. I thought it went perfectly for a wedding card.


Here you can see the punched border and the ribbon. I just love how this side looks!


Just a quick shot of the inside of the card for you to see how it opens. You still see the ribbon and stamped sentiment on the edge when you open it and you also have plenty of space to write your good wishes for the couple.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Cut a 12”x12” white cardstock to 6”x11.75” and fold 5” from the left. Punch along the side with Martha Stewart Cherish border punch to give it a shaped edge. Stamp the sentiment along the right side. Punch 2 holes about 1.5” apart and thread cream colored ribbon through it. Trim a piece of purple pattern paper to 4.75”x5.75”.  Machine stitch around the edges and adhere onto the background cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment from the Bella Rosebud Precut Set on the bottom right hand corner of the card. Stamp the 3 butterflies from the Wings of Hope Precut Set unto cream cardstock using brown archival ink and die cut and emboss the image with the largest Oval die Shapeabilities Ink some areas on the inside to give it some dimension. Cut and emboss the Decorative Oval Window Die and snip off the cross in the middle. Tuck in the oval stamped image in the center of the window. Pop dot the two dies and adhere on the center of the card. Stamp and die cut 2 small and one large butterfly from the Brookside Manor Precut Set. Add each butterfly over the coordinating image of the Wings of Hope stamped image and lift up their wings to give them dimension. Add a white pearl to the center and stickles to their wings.  Add liquid pearl dots to accent some areas of the Decorative Oval Window Die. For the roses, stamp and die cut a bunch of different size rose images. For the larger flower, use two of the largest size and 4 of the second largest. Use only 4 of the second largest to make the second smaller flower. Add stickles to the edges and let it dry. Stamp and die cut a few rose leaves and thorn fillers from the Classic Bella Rose Precut Set and add to flower cluster.
