Falling In Love Wedding - Double Gate Fold

http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/04/kylies-international-blog-highlights.htmlThis card is included in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights.  The top ten winners will be part of an international blog hop - so we're all keen to do well!  Our theme for this highlight is Wedding. 

First of all, I'd like to thank my fellow Crazy Crafter, Sarah Burnett for inspiring me with the cards she made for our last Blog Hop together!  Her beautiful use of the Double Gate Fold, Falling In Love Designer Series Paper and Bloomin' Heart Thinlits popped into my mind when I was asked to make a special wedding card.

So here is my CASE of Sarah's card.

The tiny pearls add a hint of luxury and seem fitting for a wedding card

I reduced the size of the heart by using a heart-shaped framelit to cut a piece from it.  I glued it to some Sahara Sand card, also cut with the same framelit.  I decorated the heart with little flowers cut with dies from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits, tiny pearls and sequins from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.  Then I glued it to the middle of the Very Vanilla belly band.

The belly band is finished with a couple of Sahara Sand hearts made with the Sweetheart Punch, more sequins and tiny pearls.

The Falling in Love paper is so elegant and with the flowers and hints of lace just perfect for a wedding

Inside the card is a Very Vanilla label, cut with one of the Lots of Labels framelits and cut to size so that it doesn't show when the card is closed.  The greetings are stamped in black and come from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Double Gate Fold cards are so quick and simple to make yet create such intricate cards.

The flowers in the middle of the card were cut from Sahara Sand card with the Flourish thinlits.  I used the individual flower thinlit  for one side and, because I wanted them to seem to curve towards each other, I used the large thinlit for the other side and trimmed it to size.  I added a couple of tiny pearls to each flower.  

By purchasing the Flourishing Phrases Stamp set and Flourish Thinlits as a bundle, I saved 10%.

To decorate the space at the top of the card, I stamped the chain of hearts from the Sealed With Love stamp set with Versamark onto Sahara Sand card.  This was sufficient to provide the outlines for the hearts when I cut them out with the matching die from the Love Notes Framelits.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
Stephanie
