Dear friends, I hope your week is going well!! Someone asked me about anniversary and wedding card making ideas so I wanted to pop in with this card that I made recently. It’s one of the batch that went to the UK but since it’s so easy and makes a unique wedding/anniversary card I thought I’d show it here. By the way, a picture would be lovely in the frame with the sentiment stamped below – just sayin! Oh, and hello wedding invitation, right?
The basic card includes Spellbinders Grand Large Labels made into a card base. I have two tutorials that show you my method to do this Spellbinders Hinged Card Bases. They come in handy with this card because you get a clean window on the front when the front and back are cut separately, then the window cut (using Spellbinders Grand Squares), then front and back joined. I also used JustRite Filigree Corners with Mix and Match Sentiments, Spellbinders Floral Ovals (hollowed out by Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG) and Spellbinders Scalloped Borders Two. It is simply a window card and the floral oval with sentiment inside is glued to the inside of the card (see below) :-)
Here’s your Step By Step recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base cut using Grand Labels as described above – 5-3/8″ x 6-7/8″ , die cut layer using four of the small corners from Filigree Corners adhered to front of card, foam tape, die cut layer with Scalloped Borders Two on lower end of card. Floral ovals glued to inside of card. Add bow and bling.

Good morning Becca from misty Ochil Hills of Central Scotland,
Oh i do like your wedding card and the verse on the front is lovely and unusual. I don’t think i have ever seen a verse for someone becoming someone’s wife before. I like how you have cut away the middle to have the filigree oval frame coming out of the front of the card from the back. I have to admit to being a bit fond of a pure white card or pure white with mirri added as it always looks so stylish.
Thank you for giving us an insight into your fantastic creativity,
Love and crafty hugs
Beautiful card, and I’ve not seen the sentiment before either. As you said, it would work for other sentiments just as well.
Hi Becca. What a gorgeous card that works for so many occasions. I love the filigree, it is so pretty. Take care.
Hi Becca, what an absolutely stunning card. I am in the process of making an Anniversary card for my Mum and Dad. Up until now, I think that I have made 5 cards which I am NOT happy with. So I think I will try out your card, but with the photograph in the centre. I will have to buy the Filigree Corners and the Grand Labels dies. :-( Is there any other way that it could be done without having to buy and use the Grand Labels die? Hugs, Jen xx
Becca, this is simply magnificent. WOW! The beauty and elegance on this card are beyond words, you are so talented! I’m speechless. Fabulous work (as always).
WAUW Becca, this is soo gorgeous again. Do you ever run out of awesome ideas for new cards?? I don´t think so, as you always keep them comming like milk from a cow LOL. But boy I love them all, and this one is absolutely stunning work.

This was sort of the design I used for the card I made for hubby for our 50th anniversary. However, I had not mastered the bowmaker as yet so didn’t have your georgous bow. Which bow is this one? Love it. So very perfect.
Your cards are spectacular and this is no exception! Beautiful!
You make such beautiful cards.
How elegant is this! Absolutely beautiful Becca, just love the gold filigree corner dies.
Becca, I feel like a broken record — your beautiful cards SO inspire me! As hard as I try, I cannot make my bows as lovely as yours. Your bow maker is tops on my wish list! Thank you for all your inspiration!

Hi Charlotte in comment #20.
DCWV has a 12 x 12 pad with foil :-)
If you’re in a pinch, simply run over to Hobby Lobby back where the poster board would be found. They sell a posterboard sized sheet :-)
Hi Jennifer in comment #4.
Sure, you don’t have to use Grand Labels, substitute the shape of your choice or just use a cut rectangle :-)
Wow… So much beautiful wedding card… <3 the wordings so much
