All White Wedding Card

Card Front

Created by Mary Dimercurio Prasad for ECD Design Team

Fall is the time for Halloween and getting ready for Christmas (it’s never too early to get a start on Christmas cards!), but it’s also high season for weddings. Being a photographer, I’m keenly aware of this. A friend and fellow gamer just got married; this is the card I made for the newlyweds.

Making the Card

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock in half so you have two pieces 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Fold one in half for a card base.

2. Cut the leftover piece of white cardstock in half and use one to cut a piece 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches; emboss with Spring Leaves. Adhere to center of card front using dimensional tape. Use the other half to create the tag using Tag 1 main (basic shape) die plus the decorative overlay die. Trim to 4 1/2 inches.

3. From another piece of white cardstock, die cut one large and one small Crystal Flower Overlay and one small Crystal Flower (solid). Adhere the large overlay to the tag as shown (flat). Curl the petals of the others upward and adhere as shown (offset from each other).

4. Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock. Die cut one small Crystal Flower center circle and the word Congratulations (trim along score line, leaving narrow band below lettering). Peel off backing and coat adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter; polish with finger. Glue circle to center of flower. Glue Congratulations near bottom of tag as shown. Adhere ribbon over bottom of Congratulations as shown, wrapping it around the back of the tag.

5. Using dimensional tape, adhere tag to front of card at a slight angle as shown.

Congratulations, Lovebirds

September 25, 2014
Hi there crafty friends! It’s Debra here today to share a quick and elegant Congratulations card for the newlywed lovebirds in your life.  Do you find, as I do, that you are always in short supply of a beautiful wedding card for that special bride and groom? It’s easy to pick one up at the store but it’s just not the same as making one with all the love and affection you feel for the happy couple. Finding the time to make something special can be a challenge. That’s why today’s card is so easy you can make several to tuck away in your stash. Tip: If you know the bride and groom’s wedding colors you can change the card to match their special day.

Here are the instructions:

1. Cut a piece of light blue cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold in half to form a standard A2 size card base. Cut another piece to 3 3/4 x 5 and emboss with the Curly Leaves Embossing Folder. Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4.

2. Adhere the embossed blue piece to the white piece. Adhere to the card base on foam adhesive for added dimension.

3. Adhere a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to a 3″ square of white cardstock. Remove release sheet and place one Crystal Flower Peel-off on top, sticky side up. Place cardstock with adhesive side down onto the release sheet. Remove release sheet and cover adhesive and Peel-off with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your fingers. Brush off the excess glitter; return it to the jar for other projects. Cut out flower.

4.Adhere another piece of double sided adhesive to white cardstock 3 x 2 1/4. Peel off release sheet and cover adhesive with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your fingers. Brush off the excess glitter; return it to the jar for other projects. Die cut two Bird silhouettes from this glittered piece of cardstock.

5. Cut two Bird overlays from darker blue cardstock.

8. Adhere the bird overlays to the glittered bodies. Add a Blue/Silver Glitter Dot Peel-off to the eye of each bird. Adhere birds as shown. Overlap two circles from the Silver Crystal Flower Peel-off between the two birds’ beaks to represent wedding rings.

Here is another angle that shows how gorgeous the embossing is.

Pink Ducky Congratulations

July 10, 2014

Howdy! It’s Debra, glad to be with you today!

One of my favorite of the new July release dies is the Rubber Ducky set. It’s so cute! I kept envisioning the sweet ducky in pink and blue for a baby card and that was my inspiration for today’s project – a congratulations baby card for a little girl.

ECD July 10 finished 2a P1060719

Here’s how I made it:

1. Fold a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of white cardstock in half to form a A2 size card base. Cut yellow pattern paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 , ink edges brown and adhere to card front.

2. Cut another piece of white cardstock to 5 x 3 3/4. Die cut Congratulations on the top left using Congratulations Stand Up Helper. Trim top flush with bottom of word.

3. Cut pink pattern paper to 4 1/4 x 3 1/2, ink edges and adhere to center of Congratulations cardstock from previous step. Adhere to card front using pop dots or foam adhesive.

4. Die cut ducky and wing from pink Velvet Adhesive (for a boy, use light blue Velvet Adhesive).
Die cut beak from yellow cardstock, eye from white cardstock and bow (from Ornament Set 3) from yellow pattern paper.

5. Assemble duck. I also made a boy duck – isn’t he cute! I’ll be using this one for a baby boy card on my blog later this month so stay tuned!

6. Die cut banner pieces from Karen Burniston’s Lots of Pops in yellow pattern paper and plain yellow cardstock. Stamp and cut out letters. Adhere to banners then to white twine. (TIP: only add a small glue dot to the inner bottom of each piece in order to move and adjust the banners).

7. Add banner to top of Congratulations as shown using small glue dots in the corners. Tie bows and adhere to each end of twine.

8. Die cut white and yellow pattern paper flowers. Using a small hole punch, punch out centers from scrap of pink Velvet Adhesive and adhere to center of flowers. To create dimension, place flowers on a piercing pad and cup using a ball stylus or the back of a pen, anything with a rounded end will work.

9. To complete the card, adhere ducky as shown using pop dots or foam adhesive. Add flowers around the base of ducky using a small glue dot on the back in the center of each flower. By adding the glue dot in the center of the flower, the petals can remain cupped up.

Here is another picture of the completed card.

I hope you enjoyed making our pink ducky friend today. Using boy themed papers and the blue ducky you could easily convert this sketch into a baby boy card as well.
