Romantic Triple Easel Wedding Card

Welcome Back

I have been meaning to do this triple easel card for sometime as it has intrigued me in how it was done.  I got very good instructions on how to make a triple easel card from Creative Expressions and this is my version of the card.  I can’t find the original post but here is another post with a triple easel card featuring different dies here.  It will give you the general idea about constructing a triple easel card.

20170113_184447-1-2

The original easel card just featured the Fleur de Lis Squares from Spellbinders but I decided to use the Labels 22 from Spellbinders more prominently and was happy with the result as the card was much stronger as well.  Of course I had to put some flowers on the card and the vellum flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die set was perfect for the soft romantic finish to the card.

I have used Bridal Tinsel embossing powder on vellum for a sparkly effect and it paired up well with the Angel Pink ink from Memento for just the softest of romantic touches to the white card.  The pearls on the Tied Together embossing folder from Couture Creations just finished off the card.  It is a small card and when folded up should fit in a standard A2 envelope and should be reasonably easy to post.

Here are the side views of the card:

Cream and Gold Elegant Cards

Happy New Year

Today I am featuring some cards that I have just made.  I know that foil card has been around for a while, but I have only just discovered it and I LOVE the effects and contrasts you can get with it.  I love the elegance combining gold and cream and they work well with a 50th anniversary card.   And of course I had to use the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die sets to add the flowers and embellishments.

This  first card has been inspired by Jeannie Donnolly I had seen on Pinterest.

20170102_073834

I find it difficult making two cards the same and this one is no exception.  I had actually cut one of the Maggie dies incorrectly but ended up layering the dies under the main die image and used the Classic Border Basics cutting die from Heartfelt Creations to cut a strip to cover the gap and I was happy how it turned out.20170101_184549

The Gold Majestic Circle die from Spellbinders is a very interesting die with lots of lovely embossed textures on it and once again it is lovely for numbers for a milestone card.

20170104_152624

Finally, here is a card that I made that has no sentiment for any occasion but I think it looks very elegant for a special occasion.  I often get requests for plain unadorned cards.

20170102_122026

Materials used:

Cardstock – CTMH Colonial White, Gold Foil Cardstock

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Classic Rose Vine

Dies Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Classic Rose Vine, Classic Border Basics, Sue Wilson Lattice Frames, Maggie, Pine Leaf, Spellbinders Floral Oval, Stitched Oval, Victorian Numbers, Gold Majestic Circles

Embossing Folder – Couture Creations Baroque

Embossing Powder – Ranger Gold

Ink – Versamark

Button, glitter gems and ribbon from my stash

Have a good week and Happy Crafting.
