Instructions: Card size is 6 x 6”. Make the flowers: Stamp the flowers onto vellum using the transparent ink pad, cover in white embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Colour lightly with lovely lipstick ink on the reverse and die cut the flowers. Shape lightly with the flower shaping tools.
Fold and burnish the card base along all score lines. Die cut 4 eyelet semicircles and a square, slightly smaller than 6”, of paper from the collection and adhere to the reverse of the card. Cut a slightly smaller than 6” square piece of pink paper from the collection and edge with blushing bride ink, adhere to the centre of the card base.
Die cut 4 paler papers into eyelet semicircles and die cut the sunlight window die shapes from each semicircle. Adhere these to the front semicircles on the card base. Add 3d crystal lacquer to the front side edge of the semicircle and the circles die cut and sprinkle these with gala glitz. Set aside to dry.
Die cut 2 large door shapes from white card and adhere together, die cut a 3rd from the same paper as the sunlight window semicircles and adhere this to the back of the door. Die cut 2 of the small decorative windows and adhere together, die cut a solid pink paper and adhere the decorative window to this. Tint the “window” with blushing bride ink.
Stamp the large door using a mix of early espresso and blushing bride inks. Die cut the frame and edge with blushing bride ink. Adhere the frame and the inner decorative diecut to the solid door diecut. Edge lightly with 3d crystal lacquer and sprinkle with gala glitz – allow to dry.
Stamp the sentiment onto pink paper from the collection using the transparent ink, cover with white embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Die cut using the tag die and edge with blushing bride ink. Die cut 2 further white tags and adhere the 3 together to make a sturdy tag. Thread ribbon through the tag and tie in a small bow.
Adhere the tag, flowers and a few bridal stamens to the bottom of the window using hot glue. Position and hot glue the window to the front centre of the card (only glue to the left side so that the card will open) and add a cluster of flowers and stamens to the top right side of the window.
Place a nuvo drop in the centre of the flowers, cover with Minnie pearl prills, remove excess and allow to dry.
Die cut a dark colour album tag and adhere to the centre of the middle panel. Stamp the 2nd sentiment onto pale colour paper and white heat emboss. Die cut using the inner shaped die from the album tags, edge with blushing bride ink and adhere to the centre panel.
Die cut 2 arrows from white card stock, 1 dark arrow and 1 pale arrow. Layer them together using dries clear adhesive so that the front and back of the arrow is covered in paper. Stamp the 3rd sentiment onto the pale paper and white heat emboss. Die cut using a smaller arrow, edge with blushing bride ink and adhere to the arrow. Add to the inner left semicircle using hot glue.
