This weekend we’re attending the wedding of our niece so naturally a special card is necessary. The wedding in New Orleans has a garden theme and I couldn’t think of a better way to highlight it than to use the products from the Fancy Flora Suite Collection. The Two-Tone Flora Dies and the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper combine to create a beautiful card. Since I wanted to make a large card, the Basic White Memories & More card pack contains the perfect 4″ x 6″ size. The large Two-Tone Flora Die used to cut the overlay is perfect as it does not cut the outer edges so it allows the creation of a border to fill the entire card front. A simple message embellished with a small bow does not detract from the card front. The Something Fancy Stamp Set has the perfect size “congratulations.” On the interior a larger stamped sentiment still allows lots of space for a personal, handwritten message to the couple. And naturally, the envelope needed some embellishment! Best of all, the elegant card did not take long to create.
Here’s a tip for using the large, intricate die – cut with the die cutting edges face up. Place the die onto the cutting plate of your die machine face up, then add the card stock on top of the die, finish with top cutting plate. Depending upon your particular die cutting machine, you may also need to add a shim – usually a piece of cardstock is sufficient.

Due to the current health situation, many weddings have to be postponed. When the event is rescheduled, be prepared with a beautiful card. I’m calling today’s card the Poppy Moments Wedding Card, since it features poppies cut with the Poppies Moments Dies. The sentiment and label are from the So Sentimental Bundle. Due to social distancing, the May card class was held via Zoom and participants had fun creating this card together virtually.
And hip, hip, hooray! I have a You Tube video tutorial for you. It’s the first, but I promise you not the last that I’ll create. Yes, it took me awhile but I think I have the filming and editing somewhat figured out. Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! LOL If you scroll past the video, you’ll find the list of materials needed to create the card and assembly details.
