Foiled Sweet and Sassy Wedding Card and Bundle of Love Wallet !


 My daughter Abby is a bridesmaid today at the wedding of her beautiful friend Heather.  They met a Uni and have become firm friends.



Abby requested a special personalised card for the bride and groom.  This presented the perfect opportunity for me to play with my Stampin' Up! stash and also my Heidi Swapp Minc.

I do love the simplicity of the design.  I have based it on a previous but slightly different Engagement Card I made for my niece.

I chose a simple Gold and Whisper White colour scheme for the card.  I foiled a pretty laser printed pattern I found online and then die cut the hearts and layered them.  Texture was added with some retired gold cording trim.

I laser printed and foiled the sentiment on front.  It is a 5 3/4"inch piece of card (you do have to have a laser printer able to take card stock).

I felt it important to incorporate the special date.  Then I applied the hearts and layered the whole thing onto a 6 x 12 inch piece of Whisper White card stock, scored at 6" inches.

The beautiful thing about the Minc is that you can create a lovely foiled insert too.  This carries a special message from my daughter.

I have to say that I have found that Whisper White card is perfect for foiling as it is beautiful and smooth.  For a perfect foiled image you do need a very smooth card base.  I used the thick one for this card and was very happy with the result.


I do hope it becomes a keepsake and a lovely reminder of a perfect happy day.

The bride and groom are going on a road trip to the US for their honeymoon, so Abby also requested a wallet for their dollars (Abby's gift)   !!!

Out came the Bunde of Love Foiled 12 x 12 DSP stack, along with some Gold Foiled Card, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Ovals Framelits, together with my Floral Phrases stamp set for the sentiment on the wallet, and "voila" a pretty little wallet for a fistful of dollars !

I have just been told the bride to be has opened her card and loves it - yay !  Result xx 

Cheers Heather and Josh - Hope your day is just perfect !

Enjoy your weekend everyone and thanks for passing by.
