Directions:

  1. Cut the white matte cardstock to 9" x 6 1/4". Fold to make a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" card base.
  2. Cut a 4  1/2" x 6  1/4" piece from the Bohemia pink/floral paper.  With the solid side up, stamp one side of the background cube all around the sides of the paper with the Versamark or the Perfect Pearls medium.
  3. Brush the mica pigment powder all over the stamped background.  Lightly wipe off the excess powder with a paper towel.
  4. Cover the whole layer with clear detailed powder and heat emboss.  Attach it to the card front.
  5. Cut a 6 1/4" x 3/8" strip of the pink/floral paper and layer it, this time floral side up, with a 1" x 6 1/4" white strip.  Trim both long edges with the Fiskars mini scallop scissors.   Adhere this strip about one third up from the bottom of the card front as shown.
  6. Stamp the Bride and Groom with the clear ink on a 2 x 3" piece of matte cardstock, brush with the Perfect Pearls and then clear emboss.  Carefully cut the image out with detail scissors.
  7. With the remaining white matte cardstock, rub the Rocket Red Brilliance ink all over with the paper towel.  Over stamp this piece using the ‘crackle' side of the cube with the coral pigment ink and then clear emboss the whole piece.
  8. From this piece cut a 2  1/4" x 3  1/2" panel, edge with coral ink and clear emboss.  Adhere the Bride and Groom image to the center using a very thin line of the quick-dry adhesive.
  9. Cut a 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of the dark brown Bazzill cardstock.   Doing DTP (direct-to-paper), randomly rub clear ink on this panel and go over it with the bronze powder.
  10. Adhere the image panel to the brown panel and then attach to the upper left side of the card front as shown.
  11. With the remaining crackle piece, punch out one flower and three one-inch circles.  Edge the circles by rolling them across the Chocolate ink pad.
  12. Punch one two-inch oval from the dark brown Bazzill cardstock and another flower from the pink/floral paper.
  13. Stack the two flowers with the crackle one on top.  Punch a hole in the center of both and add a brown Bradletz star brad.  You actually have to punch it off center because the brad prongs are not centered.
  14. Add a brown Bradletz to each of the circle punches, again punching the hole off center.
  15. Attach the brown oval to the right side of the image panel and the circles below the floral strip with the quick-dry adhesive.
  16. Put the quick-dry adhesive on the back of the flower stack, gluing just the bottom flower. And adhere it to the brown oval.
  17. Stamp ‘Once upon a time..." right above the image panel.
  18. Now sign your work.  You just created a masterpiece!

 Guide's Note: As an alternative, Black Perfect Medium can be used instead of the clear.  It gives you a darker version of the bronze, which is pretty nice also.

  1. Regena, great colors. I can't believe you cut out the bride and groom. I have that stamp, but it never looked so good....

  2. Thanks Shelly and Jane! Glad you like it!

    That card is fairly easy to do and can be adapted to any color combination. You could also do it without actually cutting out the silhouette (which is a little tricky). I just like cutting things out. I've done a lot of decoupage, so I'm used to it.

    Thanks also for checking out the site and hope you keep coming back to see what else we have to offer!

  3. This card is stunning! My first visit to your site, and I find something like this. WOW!

  4. what a great wedding card!
