A Heartfelt Love Wedding Card

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I have a card that has taken some time to make as I was looking for the right embellishments on it.  This is a gatefold card that was inspired by Emma Lou Beechy from Heartfelt Creations when the Heartfelt Love collection was released last November.  I have embellished the card with Arianna Blooms and Wildwood Floral flowers and the leaves are from the Classic Leaf stamp and die set.  I have used iCraft flower making cardstock which is amazing to use for creating flowers and even making leaves.  I love the Ranger Archival inks and have used them to colour all the embellishments here.

I hope you have enjoyed this card.  Watch out for another beautiful Butterfly Dreams card on Wednesday.

Take a 6” x 6” panel and using the edge die from the HCD1-7220 Fleur Border Basics Die set cut the centre section out.  Adhere the cut edge butterfly border under the edges of the paper with foam tape.

Stamp the “You are So Thoughtful” image from the HCPC-3825 Butterfly Kisses Stamp set in Jet Black ink above the border using a stamp positioner.

Die cut two edges using the patterned edge and straight edge dies from the HCD1-7220 Fleur Border Basics Die set in white cardstock.  Sponge the straight edge with Garden Patina ink and the scallop border with Vibrant Fuchsia ink.  Add Crystal Clear glitter to the borders with Dries Clear glue and adhere over the edges of the paper.  Trim the sides to make the panel 5 ¾” x 5 ¾”  and adhere the panel to the front of the card.

Add Ultrafine Glitter to all the flower images on the patterned paper.
