I’ve gotten a bunch of questions about how I did this, so here are some step-by-step photos:

It has been a long time since I’ve gone to a wedding shower… and somehow I’ve gone from one of the excited young women in the wedding party (or friend of the bride) to one of the old lady invites–friend of the parents! The young bride is just a sweet and beautiful girl and it seems like yesterday that she was in high school. I wanted to make a special card for her and it has been a very long time since I’ve sat down and actually made a card for an occasion. It was a very nice feeling when she announced–‘Oh this has to be from Amy’ when she pulled the card out of the gift bag [warm fuzzy feeling–card was appreciated]!

So, I finally got to use my ‘All Dressed Up’ framelits dies!  You can see below the one that is the ‘form’ (neck/shoulders/body with ‘stand’–cut out of Naturals Ivory paper) and the other for the actual dress (in white and embossed) and that I added two of the lace doilies for the skirt that are a special order item in the Occasions Catalog. And of course lots and lots of Pearls!!! In fact the necklace was made with the pearl strips that are all attached. I cut a strip of 5 pearls and easily peeled and pressed them on!

The Sizzix textured embossing folders used were the ‘Vintage Wallpaper‘ and ‘Perfect Polka Dots‘ as well as the Apothecary Accents framelits (for the opening).

Stampin' Up! Wedding Card

Stampin' Up! Wedding Card SideViewIt’s a nice day for a white wedding… !  This card was quick, quick, quick!  A Whisper White card with a 4 x 5 1/4 inch layer embossed with the Elegant Bouquet (#115964) Sizzix embossing folder and then the top layer cut with the *NEW* (coming June 1st) Apothecary Accents Sizzix Framelits dies (#127003) exclusively for Stampin’ Up!

The center was embossed with the Designer Frames folder #123130 (comes with an oval and a rectangle frame) directly onto the cut layer and then I sneakily stamped the greeting on scrap white and punched it out with the XL oval punch that fits EXACTLY in the middle!  No worrying about getting it right.  And to top it off, strategically placed pre-glued rhinestones (#119246) added just that right amount of bling…

The satin ribbon… which I will miss terribly–is slated to retire May 31st… I LOVE the satin ribbon and wish Stampin’ Up! would re-think that!  I might have to stockpile it…

Remember, May 31st–this Thursday, is the last day for the 2011-12 Catalog and the last day for this month’sonline special… AND the last day to qualify for my $200+ basket of goodies for leaving a comment on my blog post… the winner will be announced Friday!
