You can watch a video on how to make the Classic Rose here.

Instructions: My card size is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2".  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Hot glue a piece of white lace along the bottom of the card. I used some glue on a sponge and dabbed around the edges of my card and then used the Frosting Powder to add some interest to the card.

Stamp, diecut, color and shape the roses. (I stamped the roses using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and colored them in New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves ink)  Use glue and the Frosting Powder on the edges of the petals for a very encrusted look.  

Next I stamped, diecut and colored the dove and added Crystal Clear to the doves plumes (I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the dove and New Sprout to color). I used a piece of the dimensional tape to attach it to the bottom of the card.

Next stamp and diecut the Classic Wedding Roses stamp large heart using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and use the dove blender pen to color using Memento inks (New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa). Adhere it to the front of the card and then glue your roses around the die cut.  Your card is ready to go.

To see tips on shaping the Classic Rose, watch this tutorial.

Instructions: This card when completed fits into an envelope measuring 9 1/2" x 7 1/2" (24.1 cm x 19 cm). To make the card base take the A4 card stock make 2 folds, being 2 1/4" (6 cm) each to form the foot of the card. Fold this to a hill and valley fold. Cut the card front base at 5 3/5" x 6 3/4" (14.2 cm x 17.1 cm) The card slider at 2 5/8" x 4 1/2" (6.7 cm x 11.5 cm) The slider stop at 1" x 3 3/4" (9.5 cm x 3 cm). Visit Sussipoppins.blogspot.com to find a photo tutorial on how to put this card together

Taking the peach cardstock cut this a little smaller than the card front base, the designer paper for the card front is distressed with a paper distresser. When preparing with double sided tape, apply only to three sides. Leaving the top open so the slider can slip into this opening. 

Find the desired designer paper from the paper collection and cut matting for the card base measurements. This is also cut a little smaller than the cardstock. Apply double sided tape then adhere to the card base pieces. Adhere the card front to the centre of the card foot. Centre then adhere the slider to the top edge of the card background. Slip the slider into the card front opening. This makes the card base complete, now  continue decorating your card.

Taking the white card stock and the large rose heart stamp, stamp once with the Sap green ink and the other with the gold embossing powder. Die cut using both the outer and inside die pieces. Find the sentiment, using a scrap of designer paper stamp with gold embossing powder. Trim edges so you will have a banner that will fit into the heart centre. 

Stamp three leaf swirls using the Sap green ink, apply a little ink to the heart of the leaves using the daubers. Make the roses and rose buds. Stamp the roses in black ink on white paper and diecut using coordinating die. Color using Stack and Store Daubers and Distress inks, Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany. Shape flowers and leaves as desired. 

Adhere the hearts with 3d foam tape or double dots. Slip the sentiment banner into the heart centre and secure. Arrange and adhere a leaf swirl to each side of the heart, adhere the roses using as filler the extra leaf swirl, trimming as you go. Apply crackle medium to the roses then the crystal powder. Heat to activate the mediums.

Instructions: Card size is 5 7/8 x 6", I chose a peach colored paper from Classic Wedding Collection and cut it 5 7/8 x 5 7/8" then used a border punch to cut a border on the left side only.

Other products: Paper trimmer, score board, ruler, scissors

Instructions: This a very easy and fun way to make a super interactive mini album that fits in the Classic Wedding train caboose that was highlighted a few weeks ago on this blog. The inspiration for this project came from https://youtu.be/lvsq_ERugUk My Sister Scrapper. Instead of making a mini album that is rectangle as described in the video I altered the mini album to a 3 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches mini album that is put together the same way.

For the pages: You will need to cut six pieces of white cardstock 7 inches by 7 inches square. Score both ways at 3 ½ inches. Cut one of the four score lines to the middle intersection mark on each of the six pages. Cut six pieces of white cardstock 3 inches by 4 ½ inches Score on the 4 ½ inches side at ½ inch from each end and with the 3 inches side across the top score at 1 ½ inches. Cut a small notch at the ½ inch and 1 ½ inch intersection for ease in folding the pockets on each of the six set of pages. Fold on the score lines of the 7 inches by 7 inches white cardstock pieces with the open side on the page on the top and bottom with the folded page with the opening side on right side and bottom forming the pocket. Attached glue to the ½ inch borders of the 3 inches by 4 ½ inches pieces and glue in place to form the pockets. Refer to pictures for details. Attach the pockets with glue. Cut six pieces of white cardstock 3 inches by 3 inches and 12 pieces of white cardstock 2 inches by 3 inches. Cut 30 pieces of Classic Wedding decorative paper 3 inches by 3 inches and 12 pieces of Classic Wedding decorative paper 1 ¼ inches by 4 ¼ inches for the pockets. Attach decorative papers to white cardstock with glue.

For the hidden hinge: Cut a piece of white cardstock 3 inches by 12 inches and score every half inch across the 12 inch side. Glue six sets of hinges starting from the middle and working your way outward with one open hinge that lays flat between each raised page hinge. You will have 1 inch and 1 ½ inches of scored lines left over at each end.

For the cover: Cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 3 ¾ inches by 10 inches. On the 10 inches side of the paper score 3 ¾ inches from each end. I used a ½ inch gusset in between the pages and the hidden hinge system described in the video. Glue the hidden hinge piece in to the binding of the mini album and the extra to the inside front and back cover. Cover the cover with four pieces of 3 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches Classic Wedding Paper and 1 piece 2 ½ inches by 3 ¾ inches paper for the outside of the cover.

To see how to shape the roses, watch the tutorial here.

Instructions: Take two 12 x 12" piece of gray cardstock and score it at 4 and 8" turn it and score again 4 and 8". Cut off the corners on both papers, then take a piece of 11 1/4 – 11 1/4" and score this at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2" turn it and do the same again! Cut these corner off also. Now glue them all on top of each other first the 2 big ones and then the small one. Decorate all the panels with paper from the collection. You can make some pockets too, and fussy cut tags of your choice adding gold thread if desired.

Glue the wedding couple in the middle of the box using hot glue. Diecut medallion out of gray cardstock using medallion die. This medallion will be placed behind the wedding couple to create a fence effect. I used strips of clear acetate folded in half and glued the medallion onto the strips of acetate to allow it to stand up.

Stamp Roses and leaves in Versafine Black ink and diecut with coordinating dies. Using the stack and store daubers, color leaves in Bamboo Leaves with light touches of Vintage Photo and Flowers in Picked Raspberry. Shape using Deluxe flower shaping kit following video for shaping flowers. Add desired flowers and leaves in front of couple.

Lid: Using gray cardstock cut out a square of 6 1/8 – 6 1/8" and score at 1 inch all the way round, on one side use a scissors to cut two times one on the left corner and one on the right corner just to the score line, on the opposite side of the square and repeat this process. Fold along the score line and add glue on tabs to shape lid. Cut pieces of patterned paper on top and sides of the lid and box. 

Take the ribbon and create a bow and adhere this on top of the box. Arrange flowers and adhere onto lid as well as dove embellishment. Add lace along all sides of the lid. Add Nuvo drops in centers of small flowers and dots around as desired.

Instructions: Sand rough edges of tiles, clean off dust with water, wipe dry and let dry overnight. Stamp sentiment from Italiana Riviera Set on top of each tile and Italiana Grape Cluster image on bottom using Jet Black Staz-On Ink. (Note: Apply reinker to ink pad before stamping to make sure ink pad is very juicy when stamping.) Let tiles dry overnight or heat set well with a heat gun.

Using Staz-On inks and make-up applicators, dab colors on tiles to color images. I use paper towels to dab off excess ink before applying to tile and then go back and add more color to shadows. After coloring is completed, bake tiles at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Let tiles cool.

Cut cork sheet into 3 5/8" squares using cutting mat, metal ruler and craft knife. Adhere cork squares to backs of tiles. 

Create these in a group of 4 for gift giving. Cut a piece of sheer ribbon and tie the group of tiles together. 

For the tag, die cut the pre-made label from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection using the matching die from Luggage and Tags Die Set. Ink the edges of the tag with Saddle Brown Ink and tie to ribbon with twine.

Really beautiful cards, I just loved the wedding collection. It would be awesome to produce a collection especially for men... What do you think?

Hi Wendy, We hope you can find something for the special men in your lives with the Woodsy Wonderland Collection, Coffee Talk, Everyday Heroes, or the stamps from the Balmy Breeze collection. On the lighter side there is the Monkeying Around Collection. We hope that helps!

Hi Maryellen, Joann Jamieson-Larkin mentioned that it was a cut file and the information for where she purchased it is on her blog. Have a wonderful day!

2 cards have drawn my attention today: Ewelina'a unexpected use of gold leaves is lovely! Nupur's choice of Fleur Border Basics Dis is the perfect choice for this card...also love her interesting use of scoreboard lines. I so look forward to your Wednesday Blog! I always am inspired to create at a higher level. Thanks!

I think these cards are amazing, I haven't seen these papers yet but I will have to order some. Love the wedding papers but really love the Christmas papers (I love anything Christmas). The carriage is gorgeous and the 'Doves and Roses' card is stunning. Love both collections.
