Happy Wedding


Vickie Y sharing with you today an elegant wedding card that only took minutes to create using dies from the Dies R Us online store!

I first created the cardbase using white cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.  I foled the base in half and centered the Frantic Stamper Ornate Edger die on the edge of the front panel to die cut the intricate base of the card.
tip:  be sure to open the cardbase before die cutting.

I then cut a strip of designer paper at 1 1/4 x 12 inches to create a belly-band to go around the card.

Wrap the strip of paper around the card and adhere the ends together, with the seam on the back of the card.  (tip:  the seam could be located on the front of the card with the die cut embellishment adhered over the seam)

Next, die cut the Cheery Lynn Small Lace Faerie Queen Buttefly and the Angel Wing die that is included in the die package.  For the Angel Wing die, I folded a piece of scrap paper and placed the edge of the angel wing on the fold to die cut; once die cut, when the fold is opened the wing is fully cut the same size of the body of the butterfly die.

Next, adhere the die cut butterfly to the angel wing and then adhere the butterfly with angel wing to the band.

To complete the card, I stamped a sentiment and small image using the wedding theme. Then wrapped the band around the right side of the card.  Here is a close-up of the delicate butterfly.

  8. So in April, my husband and I had our wedding reception here and we both have no regrets with choosing this venue. I am still receiving compliments from all our guests. The food at Los Angeles wedding venues was delicious from appetizer to dessert.
