About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

Tri-fold Wedding Card with Pop-Up

This is the wedding card I made for my daughter and her new hubby. If you're wondering how long this took to make... don't ask! It went on for days.

I wanted everything about the card to reflect their wedding; the colours and elegance had to befit the occasion. This was my first pop-up card so that involved a learning curve and a lot of patience, hence the time delay. But I think it was worth it. Don't you? Hmmm.

Cartridges used are all listed at the bottom of this entry.

The card stock is luminescent in blue and silver. The blue/green just happened to match the bridesmaid's dresses. The word "Forever" is cut from silver mirrored stock and shadowed in black. For the front, I punched the right edge and adhered a strip of the blue behind it.

The right-hand panel is done in silver stock with black and silver swooshes stamped and layered.

Inside, I used a wedding paper of soft silver roses on white.

The pop-up heart was cut from blue with an overlay of shiny silver.
This tri-fold card provides lots of space for a verse or poem.

I cut the Bride and Grooms' initials from white, shadowed in black.

This picture shows the pop-up heart in detail.

Flourish cut from sparkly black card stock. I just love this product and will be making a lot more embellishments with it. It will be wonderful for scrapbooking pages. It's quite stiff so I recommend lowering the cutting blade to 6 and set pressure to 5.

Cartridges Used:

Home Décor - "Forever"
Stretch Your Imagination - Bride & Groom and frame on front
Storybook -  J&B initials, the heart, and black flourish

About Me

My photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
