Wedding Card - For Krystle & Josh

I made this wedding card for my niece, Krystle and her groom, Josh, for their wedding on August 19. I got the lovely photo from their Facebook photo album which I edited into sepia color for the vintage look. The ornate heart frame is a free clip art which I traced in Silhouette Studio. For the flourish heart inside the card, you can download the free PNG file at http://lalalime.blogspot.com/p/free-png-carding-templates.html. It's a beautiful file that's easy to trace in Studio. I can't share the Studio file due to the  owner's restrictions.

I used another favorite technique, the faux chipboard, on the ornate heart frame to make it sturdy. I cut 3 pieces of the design and layered them together using designer card stock for the top layer and ordinary card stock for the bottom 2 layers.The rose flowers are store bought and the leaves are 3 cuts of  leafy_sprig C00355_23067 from the Silhouette store. I found these adorable metal heart charms in my box of trinkets which I know Krystle will love. They added a nice touch to the heart theme of the card. The sentiments were all made from Print & Cut using the Baroque Script and Scriptina fonts. The tag for the Best Wishes sentiment is a Silhouette file, Design id#14863 (Ribbon Banners-set of 4 banners), 

I made a box for the card using a design from the Silhouette store called 'adorable box' by Lori Whitlock, Design id #7388 (color grey with blue strip in the middle), which I tweaked to fit the exact size and depth of the card. I put a cut heart shape on the front and covered it with an acetate (transparency film). The fancy tag is a Spellbinders die. I used a magnetic snap for the box closure, the same kind that I used for my note/post-it holders. Other designs used on the box:

1. flower rosette lace - Design id #10706
2. flourish bold - Design id #5156
3. 2 layered ornament - Design id #14698 (design on the flap of the box)

I always insert a simple instruction for the easel cards that I make. For those of you who like the file, just send me an e-mail.

For the ornate heart frame and base of the easel card FREE file, please post your comment indicating your request. My free files are shared exclusively to my blog FOLLOWERS only. Also included in the free file are the sentiments 'Best Wishes' and 'Together Forever'.

I still read a lot of complains and frustrations on the Silhouette ratchet blade. As you can see on all the intricate designs that I use, my CB09/aluminum blade holder and blades cut efficiently. The blade that I used for this project is the same blade that I've been using on all my previous projects in the last 4 months. The issue about the Silhouette blades is still an ongoing hot topic in all the Silhouette groups. These folks should just find an alternative blade system. To read more about the CB09/aluminum blade holder: http://ligayatg.blogspot.com/2012/04/aluminum-blade-holder.html

Happy crafting!

    1. Hi Barb,

      I was so glad to find your comment. Thank you! I actually pinned your heart flourish on my Pinterest a while back. You have great designs and your blog should be shared so others can also enjoy your beautiful files. I fell in love with your heart flourish the moment I saw it and I plan on using it again on another card. I will let you know when it's posted so you can put the photo on your blog.

      Yes, please, go ahead and post my photos. Just like you, I love seeing creations made out of my files. I actually tell my file recipients to share a photo of what they come up with.

      Thanks you so much!
