8”x 5⅜”How it is made:
- Cut white card 8”x 10¾”. Score at 5⅜”. This will form your card base.
- Cut a mat for the card front with white card stock. Cut the mat at 7¾”x 5⅛”. Apply tacky tape 1” from the edge on the left and right and a ¼” from the top and bottom edge.
- Remove the backing to expose the adhesive. Apply crystal ultra fine glitter to the tacky tape. Adhere to the card front.
- Cut white card stock at 5½”x 4”. Emboss white card stock with the Scrollwork embossing folder and die cut machine.
- Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp hearts with Versamark ink in the center of the embossed card stock. Add Heat and Bond to the stamped image and heat with a heat gun. Add crystal glitter to the image. Adhere card stock to the center of the card front.
- Add pearl gemstones to the card front on the scrollwork embossing.
- Using the white satin ribbon and the bow easy, I made a small bow and add to card front just under the hearts using Zots.
- Stamp the Mr. and Mrs. on a scrap of white card stock with Tuxedo Black.
Using a tag punch, punch out the words and apply to the card front with the bow.
