Folk Art Heart Layered Dies
Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am on the Birch Press Design blog sharing this wedding themed card created using the Folk Art Heart Layering dies. And yes, that is a mouthful to say! I only had to do about 27 outtakes on today's video when I blubbered through those words! My husband and I actually had a wedding that we were supposed to attend two weeks ago in Orange County, California, that was canceled due to coronavirus. There were over 300 people anticipated to attend and travel in from across the country. Ugh, I can't even imagine what that poor bride (and groom too, of course!) have been
going through. . .
*You can see the full details for how to make this card in the video tutorial located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I also created a white scalloped frame from the same cardstock. Using Memento Tuxedo black ink, I stamped the sentiment at the top and bottom of the card, so that there would be room for the two hearts in the middle. I tried to create each heart to resemble more traditional bride and grooms colors, though you could easily make the hearts to match the wedding colors, or create two pink and white hearts if there were two brides to be celebrated!
Here are the Folk Art Heart Layering dies from Birch Press Design that I used to create this card:
I hope you have enjoyed this card! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
I honestly cannot remember the last wedding I attended, it's been that long. . . But, I always try and keep a few extra wedding cards on hand, you know, just in case someone opts for Elvis and Vegas on a Friday night whim! I also do not even remember the last wedding card I actually made, so clearly that has been a while too! Recently, as I was organizing and re-labeling my shoe boxes of cards, I realized that I am out of wedding cards. So, today I have used the "Pretty Pavilion" stamp set from Stampin' UP! to create a few wedding themed cards to have on hand.
*A full supply list is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs, I cut the scalloped background from Melon Mambo paper. I cut a 3" x 2" piece of floral patterned paper and adhered it to the bottom of the scalloped rectangle. I cut a 3" x 3" piece of white cardstock to place above the floral paper. I stamped "always and forever" in the upper left corner in Melon Mambo ink. I stamped the pavilion in Versamark ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. i heat embossed the pavilion with white embossing powder and then die cut it using the coordinating die.
I stamped the pavilion banner in Versamark ink on Melon Mambo cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used the coordinating die to cut the banner out. I stamped the two trees and the presents in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. I then adhered the entire scene to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I tied a piece of green twine around the card before adhering it all together.
Here is the second card I created also using the Pretty Pavilion stamp set:
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I placed a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of mint plaid paper directly on the card base. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies by Gina Marie Designs, I cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. I lined the Mint Macaron cardstock with a piece of white cardstock. On this white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment "Always and Forever" in Blushing Bride ink. I stamped the pavilion in Early Espresso ink and die cut it using the coordinating dies. I stamped the trees in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored them using Copic markers. I stamped the pavilion banner in Versamark ink on Blushing Bride cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I die cut it using the coordinating dies. I stamped the pavilion greenery in Versamark ink on Mint Macaron cardstock and heat embossed in with white embossing powder. I die cut the greenery using the coordinating dies. I assembled the entire scene together using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I hope these cards will inspire you to create some wedding cards to have on hand too.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!

Altenew Sketchy Landmarks
Hi friends, today I'm sharing a card with you that we made in my last stamp camp. It was only the second time I had used the Sketchy Landmarks stamp set from Altenew and the Westminster Abbey stamp made for a beautiful wedding card. It's very simple and elegant in black and gold. I love that this set also comes with a variety of greetings that would work well as a sympathy or more religious card too.
Full list of supplies at end of post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4x 4" sheet of Gold Foil paper for the first mat. I cut a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of Basic Black cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using a now-retired star embossing folder from Stampin' UP! I stamped the church on a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed it in gold embossing powder.
