A Wedding Card

Looking for the Mema's Crafts post? I have two posts for today, but if you scroll down you will find that the post for Mema's is right under this one. Thanks

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to June!!! Five months down and we are about 3 weeks away from the official start of summer.This year is flying by for sure.

Well this month the Craft-Dee BowZ designers have been given a theme of - Wedding. So with that in mind, you will be seeing some really beautiful cards all depicting the wedding theme.

Here is a card I made with that that fits perfectly with the wedding theme. My card is pretty simple.



This card uses only two colors,white and silver. (This is a 6X6 square card.) First I  die cut a heart out of the white panel and embossed it with a swirl emboss folder. I then embossed a smaller vertical section of the white card panel with dots and on the larger portion of the panel I used a floral embossing folder.

Next I attached the square white panel over a silver panel. I added a fluffy multi loop bow  and attached this panel to the front of the card. Next using dimensional foam, I attached the heart in an offset manner over the spot where the heart was cut from and added silver flat back pearls. This is a quick and easy card to make, great for those last minute times when you need a card.



The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is the tool that makes bow making a cinch. If you are bow making challenged then this is the tool for you. Easy to use instructions included and plenty of video's to walk you thru if you are a visual learner, and those videos have other bow making instructions besides the basic single looped bow.

I am submitting this card in the following challenges:


  • Amusing - W, 2E, no digi -  Anything Goes  (#20)
  • Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - #10 Anything Goes  (#164)
  • The Corrosive Challenges -  #225 Anything Goes  (#146)

  • Sister Act Card Challenge - No. 108  - Always Anything Goes (Cards only) (#182)


  • I will be back tomorrow with another wedding themed card. Hope you stop back for more inspiration.

    Have a great day
