Bride Card

Dawn Griffith shared a card she made today using a template by Jan Tink.  It's very simple to make and turns out really cute.

Using Jan's template, I cut the skirt and the torso out of cardstock.  The heart shaped bodice is from Doodlecharms and I tweaked the shape using Design Studio.  The Brocade Cuttlebug folder is the one I used to do the embossing.  The base of the bouquet is  the 1 3/4" SU scalloped circle punch, the flowers are the Bitty Punch.  I added some stick on pearls for the necklace and some Liquid Pearls for the flower centers.

This card can literally be completed in about 10 minutes.  I whipped mine out to post for the One Hour Challenge on the Cricut MB this evening.

Just think how special this would be if you used the bride's wedding colors!

When I make the next card using Jan's idea, I plan to use Liquid Pearls for the necklace also.  Those tiny sticky back pearls are a booger to hang onto and get applied evenly spaced! LOL!

If you want the instructions for making the card, go to Dawn's website.  Just Google Dawn Griffith, then scroll down to the photo of the card.  She has a link there to Jan's website with the template and information.
