Extra Large Heart Punch
Basic Black card
Whisper White card
Pretty in Pink card
Basic Black 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon
Jewels – basic pearls
Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions folder
- Fold your card stock and remember we are making this card in landscape fashion
- Run your card front through your favourite embossing folder – I’ve used Elegant Bouquet as I like the way it gives that direction down the card
- Take the smallest paper daisy and adhere on the right hand side of the card front (I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue) and place a Jewel – Basic Pearl in the centre.
- Now we’ll make our wedding couple:
- With your Extra Large Heart Punch, punch out 2 hearts in white, 1 heart in black and 1 heart in pink
- Take 1 white and 1 pink heart and adhere the pink heart so it shows just above the white heart, giving you a bodice effect. The take a strip of Basic Pearls and adhere down the centre of the embellishment you’ve just made. Put this piece to one side.
- With your black heart, take your snips and cut a ‘V’ shape – see picture above. Now these 2 little flaps you have cut off form the lapels. Adhere them to the outside of the ‘V’ you have just cut. With hindsight I may have used a dimensional under the lapels to give a bit of depth. Adhere the white heart behind your black heart as in the picture of the card. Tie your ribbon in a ‘bow tie’ shape (I trimmed the ends quite close to the bow) and adhere (I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue). I found I needed a weight on it for a few minutes so it would stick properly (I used the punch as the weight). I placed a pearl on the lapel to represent a corsage.
- Place dimensionals behind both embellishments and adhere to front of card where desired.
