Bordering Blooms Wedding congratulations card

Hello on this beautiful sunny day!
I have had lots of fun recently making wedding cards as I have a new Stampin' Up stamp set "for the new two". You can view all my cards on my FB pages - Mazzy's Craft Corner.
 
Today, on my blog, I would like to show you how to make one of them - a quick and simple congratulations card to the Bride and Groom. I made this card using just black and white colours.



 here we go...
 
I started with A4 whisper white cardstock. I cut it to a square shape measuring 21cm x 21cm or 8.5" x 8.5". I folded it in half using my scoring board and scoring tool.
Then using my lovely border stamp I stamped it all around the edges of the front of the card.



TIP: when you start, on the first edge make sure you leave some space in the corner (as in the picture above). It will make easier for you later to finish it off when you get to the last edge....see picture below.



Then I used the peace of paper I cut off the A4 card at the beginning. I cut it to measure 8.5cm x 19cm, or 7.5" x 3 3/8". I stamped my image right in the middle.



Now, the last bit I needed was the sentiment. I used the same ink, stamped the sentiment onto a white card and cut it out with an oval shape die using my Big Shot machine.



I also used an oval shape die a size bigger to cut out the shape to go under the sentiment - that gave me a little frame and a little bit of colour. See pictures below,




Time to put my card together. I used snail adhesive for my sentiment bit.





Then I used dimensionals for a bit of 3D effect.





I finished my card off with some pearl gems on the sentiment, a tiny bordering blossom inside the card and wishes.


And here it is - a beautiful wedding congratulations card. Quick and easy!



I hope you enjoyed my  today's tutorial. I really love this card, there is so many ways you can do it using different shape dies for the sentiment or different border stamps. I love the ones I used!
 
Well, Thank you for visiting my blog today and happy crafting xx
