Spellbinders | Shaped Wedding Card with Foamiran Flowers. Video + Photo Tutorial. Blog Hop. Giveaway (Now Closed)

Hello friends! My mom was invited to a wedding in July and she asked me if I had a wedding card to give her. I had none so I decided to make a wedding card and film a video tutorial along the way. I already had an existing card design on hand and I just changed the colors a bit, added a different sentiment and turned an everyday card into a wedding one (you can see it at the end of this post).

CARDS DETAILS

I started to work on my wedding card by scoring a sheet of Neenah Desert Storm 80 LB cardstock at 5 1/2” inches. Next, I used the largest die, the outer edge die, from the Flourished Square die set from the Romancing the Swirl collection by Becca for Spellbinders and die-cut a shaped card base.

When I work with Spellbinders dies I love to create shaped cards and just go outside the box. To create a shaped card base using a die you need to make sure that the cutting edge of the die goes above the fold of your card base. If it doesn’t go above the fold you’ll end up die cutting just 2 pieces of cardstock instead of one shaped card base.

Next, I die-cut an identical shape out gold foil cardstock and also used two additional dies to go along with it to turn this into an elegant swirl frame. I also die-cut & embossed a Hemstitch Square frame out of white cardstock (and one out of green but without the hemstitch detail).

Finally, I used Foamiran (do not confuse with craft foam) and die-cut several flower and leaf layers for my handmade flowers.

Once I had all of my parts and pieces ready I assembled the card. For my sentiment I used two stamp sets – Sketchy Landmarks from Altenew and Banner Messages from Papertrey Ink.

I also added a pocket on the inside of the card and decorated the back just for fun (I didn’t film it nor do I have photos as I did after I’d finished my video and after I took the photos of the card).

ADDITIONAL INSPIRATION

Here’s the other card I mentioned at the beginning of this post – I used same dies and identical layout to create it, yet switched the colors and sentiments to have a completely different look.
