Wedding Card with Lori

Hello! Seems it's been a while since I've been here; the germs have been rocking our house a little hard this month.  Anyway, today I have a pretty wedding easel card to share with you.  The hubs came home last week and told me he needs a card for a coworker getting married.  Since he'll be delivering it in person, I was happy to make it thick and chunky because I don't have to deal with mailing it, lol.  Here's what I came up with:





I pulled out one of my few wedding stamps (I think it's Bildmalarna) and my Copic Markers.  I knew I wanted to use that beautiful doily die again, so I cut a circle from Xpress Blending Card to fit the center. I stamped my image on the circle and colored it with my Copics.




I made my 6x6 easel card using CTMH cardstock and Authentique papers from my stash.  I placed the stopper for my easel near the top of the inside instead of the traditional placement near the bottom so it would stand up almost straight. I made sure to pop up the top strip with foam adhesive to keep it from popping closed.  I also added some rhinestone brads for bling.




I raised the doily off the card front using more foam adhesive for added depth and interest.  I embellished using Prima Fairytale Roses and Cutters Creek branded flowers.  I inked the CC flowers to darken them a bit since they were the same shade as the darker Fairytale Roses, and I wanted to add a little more color variety. The flowers are all adhered using Glossy Accents.




It's hard to see in the pictures, but I added sparkle to the eyelet areas of the wedding dress using a clear Copic Spica pen. 


Supplies available at Cutters Creek:
Other Supplies Used:
  • Cardstock
  • Pattern Paper (I used Authentique)
  • Ink to sponge flowers & paper edges (the Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads in the store would work great)
