Directions:

  1. Fold the 10" x 5" white Bazzill in half to make the cardbase.
  2. Cut a 5" x 5" piece from the white Al Fresco.  Stamp the Old French writing diagonally across the entire panel with the Starlight Silver Brilliance ink. Heat set the ink and then lightly rub silver ink around the edges with the paper towel.  Set aside.

  4. Cut a 2.75" x 3.75" panel from both white cardstocks.  Stamp the bride with Black Onyx on both panels and clear emboss the one on the Al Fresco panel only.  Heat set the other one. (Versafine is a quick drying pigment ink, so you don't always have to emboss with powder, especially on matte cardstock.)
  5. Place the Accent Ovals template over the non-embossed bride image with the 1.75" x 2.75" oval, centering the image.  Trace the oval with pencil and carefully cut out.  Edge with the silver Krylon pen and set aside to dry.

  7. Cut another panel from the plain white cardstock 3.25" x 2.75".  Stamp the wedding text with the silver Brilliance, heat set and then cut the image out with deckle edge scissors.   You can color the stems or leave them white.  I used a green Tombow marker and blender pen. Lightly edge with the Krylon pen and set aside to dry.
  8. Cut out the dress and train only from the embossed image and adhere it to the oval image with the quick dry glue (or tape runner).  Add a light coat of Crystal glitter glue to the veil.

  10. With a few dots of the quick dry glue, add a pinch of Flower Soft to the bride's veil, bouquet and the roses on the text image.  You can also use the glitter glue instead (for a little sparkle).  Let the glue dry and shake off any loose Flower Soft.
  11. Trace the large fancy oval (center of template) onto the silver Al Fresco cardstock and carefully cut it out.  Edge this panel with the black marker.

  13. Adhere the 5" square text panel to the card front.  Attach a .75" x 5" strip of the silver Al Fresco cardstock .75" from the left edge of the card as shown.
  14. Layer the oval bride image with the silver fancy oval and attach to the right side of the card. 
  15. Adhere the text panel to the lower left side, overlapping the silver strip and the bride oval panel as shown.  You can also add other embellishments to the card (silver ribbon for example).  Clear crystals around the bridal oval would also be a nice touch.
  16. Proudly sign the back of your card!
