Two Amazing Wedding Cards with Stampin' Up Love & Happiness Bundle -Plus Tips & Tricks for Embossing

Hello my crafting friends,

Today I would like to share with you these two beautiful wedding cards I created for Stampin’ Up!’s Artisan Design Team Showcase in January 2022. I was asked to use the Love & Happiness Bundle in the new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog. These cards use both heat embossing and embossing folder to give texture and interest to them. I share a lot of tips & tricks in the video so make sure to watch.

I love how this first card plays on the white of a wedding dress to the black of the a tuxedo. This is such a classic color combination for a wedding.

This second card uses gold leafing to add another layer to texture to the embossed heart. How can you not love that extra touch of gold – yummy!

Card #1

1- To create the repeated text “Happy Wedding Day” on the Basic White Cardstock. Use your Stamparatus & Grid Paper. Place your text around the 1” horizontal mark from the top of the Stamparatus and between the 4” & 7” vertical marks. Mark sure it is straight.

Line up the Basic White 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece to the far left 7” vertical mark and at the top of the grid paper. Use magnets to hold in place.

2- Use an embossing buddy or dryer sheet to remove any static. Stamp your text in VersaMark ink. Then remove the clear plate and reattach 1” lower. Ink and stamp. Repeat moving the plate down the hinge. Add white embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.

3- Use a dryer sheet or embossing buddy to remove any static that was built up with the heat tool. You may want to also add it to the back of the cardstock. Place the paper back into the Stamparatus in the same place along the 7” vertical mark. Move the top edge down ¼” so you will be stamping the text just above your first set. Add the magnets to hold in place. Ink and stamp all the way down the cardstock, apply embossing powder & heat.

4- Continue this process until the cardstock is filled with text. You will line up the top edge ¼” down each time, so ½” & ¾”.

5- Cut the cardstock down to just outside the text at about 2 ¼” and trim the top & bottom edges to be 5 ¼”.

6- To create a decorative edge to the vellum do a partial die cutting technique. Begin by lining up the small label die with the bottom & side edges of the vellum. Use washi tape to hold in place. When running it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine the top plate should only cover the area you want to cut, so the bottom half. Repeat for the top edge.

7- Add the black and white DSP to the front of the cardbase with ¼” space on the top & right edge. Add the white embossed piece opposite so there is ¼” space along the left & bottom edge. Add the vellum to the center of the card.

8- Cut out a gold & white large heart from the DSP. Make sure the pattern you choose is symmetrical in the heart. Add to the left of the vellum with dimensionals.

9- Apply embossing buddy or a dry sheet over the Basic Black ½” strip. Stamp your greeting in VersaMark and add white embossing powder, heat until shinny. Add this to the center of the card over the bottom of the heart with dimensionals on the ends.

10- Cut out two small flowers in each size from Gold Foil Sheets. Use the stylus tip from the Take A Pick Tool to curl the petals. Layer them and add them to the card.

11- Place a medium sized Gilded Gem in the center of each flower and a couple small gems around the card.

All Done!

Card #2

1- Add the large heart die to the center of the Bouquet of Love Embossing Folder. Add the 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” Basic White Cardstock to the center of the folder. Use a ruler to make sure it is centered. Run through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

2- Add outside piece to the cardbase with liquid glue.

3- Cut a large 3” scallop circle from Basic Black Cardstock & a large 3” circle from Smoky Slate Cardstock and layer them. Adhere them to the center of the card over the heart shape opening.

4- LIGHTLY apply liquid glue over the raised areas of the heart shape with a sponge dauber. Let dry – it will still be tacky. You can clean your sponge dauber with a little water, make sure to dry the sponge by pressing on a towel.

5- Apply Gilded Leafing over the top of the heart. Use a sponge or brush to remove the pieces that don’t stick. Each time you do this it will be different depending on how much glue is applied.

6- Add the heart to the center of the circle with dimensionals.

7- Apply embossing buddy or a dry sheet over the Basic Black ½” strip. Stamp your greeting in VersaMark and add white embossing powder, heat until shinny. Add this to the right of the heart with a dimensional for support.

8- Place 3 Gilded Gems around the card.

All Done!
