Dandelion Wishes, Wedding Card, Anniversary Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I got a "save the date" post card in the mail and that means I'm going to be needing a wedding card. I was planning on making a different card but when I saw the white and silver Designer Series Paper (DSP)  from the "Feels Like Frost" 6" x 6" stack and thought it would make a perfect wedding card.  Or an anniversary card too.  I had a strip of the DSP and on the other side was a part of a snow covered pine tree. I had cut away the prettiest part of the DSP and this is what was left. But when I turned it over and saw the white and silver part, I thought it would be a perfect way to use the piece I would have considered tossing out.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Smoky Slate card stock. It's the closest color to silver without having to use metallic card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

My strip was 3" wide so I cut it to 2" x 5-1/2".  Then I cut a piece of Basic Gray card stock to 2-1/8" x 5-1/2" and I taped those two pieces together.  Then I taped them to the front of the card about 1/4" away from the fold.  

I stamped the words from the "Dandelion Wishes" set using Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White card stock. I had a scrap piece of card stock so it was nice to use that up too.  I used the second largest "Stitched Circle" to die cut the words.  Then I used a Scalloped Circle die to cut the Basic Gray piece for the layer. I taped those two pieces together and I set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

When I had die cut the words I made sure I moved the die so that there would be some open space under the words. I took that remaining 1" strip of the DSP and punched out a flower using the cute "Small Bloom" punch. I put it in the palm of my hand and I pressed the center with the eraser end of a pencil so the petals would bend inward. I set the flower in place using a Dimensional and I added a pearl to the center to give it a better look.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock was added to the inside of the card and the card was finished.

This is a very quick and easy way to make a card and it's a perfect way to use those pieces of DSP that you have sitting around.  This one was a nice surprise because of the other side being so perfect for a wedding (or anniversary) card.  I like how the card turned out and now I'm ready for a wedding I will probably not be attending due to the virus.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
