Friend's Wedding/Bridal Card

silhouteet 6-3
Wedding season is here and what a better way to use our Silhouette Cameo than for all those wedding cards. Today I am dusting off the cameo and getting to work using a card that can be bought directly from the Silhouette Studio. Combining this cutting file with a beautiful and easy water color background, the effect gives this card an elegant feel.
The color was inspired by the bride's color scheme of teal and pink. This card can also be easily given for a bridal shower too!
Let's get started.
1. Purchase & download"Wedding Dress Card" by Angela Angelova from the Silhouette Studio.

2.  Place card stock on cutting mat and press "start"
8x11 sheet of card stock
3. After the machine is done cutting remove card from mat and remove all extra trimmings.
Ready to be trimmed.
4. Trim water color paper to fit the back of the card. In this case my card was 5 in. X 5 in.
5. Water color card using 2-3 colors and let dry (Or dry with heat embosser)
6. Glue water colored paper behind the card using foam adhesives.
7. Place Want 2 Scrap bling on flowers.
8. Place American Crafts ribbon and tie a bow on the top of the card.

Beautiful and classy! This is one of my favorite cards so far, and cannot wait to give this to the bride.

  1. Crystal, this wedding dress card is sumptuous and beautiful and it will be treasured by your friend! I love how the skirt has cutouts that show the pretty watercolor underneath! Thank you so much for posting my button and joining in my NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. This is such an amazingly clever card! I've never seen anything quite like it and I love how the skirt is made up of the flowers. It creates such visual interest both with the flowers and with the negative space between them. I also liked how you gave the background some oomph with those subtle watercolors you used. The ribbon at the top gives it another nice layer of dimension and the bling with the crystals is the perfect elegant touch! Great job on this and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
