4 Steps To Wedded Bliss (Cards)

Designer Rosette Die: 4 Steps to a fabulous wedding card design (from LovenStamps)

We went to a wedding earlier this summer that was absolutely gorgeous – from the hand-stamped invitations to the hand-crafted chocolate favors.  So of course I had to come up with a unique card for the bride & groom.  Right??

This week I posted another wedding card design with the  Everything Eleanor stamp set (124164). Today’s card uses another all-occasion stamp set: Big News (134018).

This card incorporates some of the bride’s design elements – like the peacock feather.  Did you know they’re super-trendy for weddings right now?  Plus they give you a gorgeous color palette for designing!

I also used another of my fav elements for right now – the Designer Rosette Die (125594) for the Big Shot.  As you can see, I layered two of the Starburst Framelits Dies (132967) pieces over the top and adhered them to make a hinge opening for the card.

Here’s a speedy tutorial graphic (feel free to pin it!) on using the Designer Rosette Die.

How to use the Designer Rosette Die from Stampin' Up! (by LovenStamps)

I cut two 8 1/2″ strips of Blackberry Bliss card stock with the die, then split each in half the long way (end up with 4 strips).  I used the scallop edge pieces to make the rosette for the wedding card, and the zig-zag edge pieces in the tutorial graphic.

And the envelope! It’s a dimensional envelope created with the Envelope Punch Board  (love it!).  If you’ve never used the Envelope Punch Board to make a deep envelope, then you’ll want to watch my Video Tutorial.  The sizes are a bit different, but you’ll get the idea.

Cutting directions for the envelope:

For the wedding card (or to fit any special occasion card using an Designer Rosette), I started with a piece of 10″ x 10″ Designer Series Paper and used the 4-3/4″ score line to begin.  Then I offset the next round of score lines by 1/2″.  Yup, I know that sounds like Greek, but if you watch the video tutorial, I promise it will make more sense!

We had a great time at the wedding – and I hope the bride & groom enjoyed their card!  Tis the season, so time to get stamping and make some more wedding and anniversary cards!

Well, 3 out of 4 smiles ain’t bad.  It’s tough when you have to wear those fancy shoes…
