For my card I decided to use the Church and School Tiny House add on, the Wedding Charms and the new and highly addictive Bam Box.
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.
1- I die cut all of the pieces for the church. I found a cream-coloured marble cardstock for the church, I used the stamp feature when die cutting the roof, and multiple colours for the windows.
2- I wanted the windows to be very vibrant so I diecut them from multiple colours of cardstock. I could have just coloured them in but I like this look. After I assembled them I put the left over pieces in a baggy for the next time.
3- I assembled the Tiny house into a Church. (Karen will make an assembly video and I will update when she does)
4- I added Pearlescent Embossing Paste as snow
I originally wanted to have the inside panels a pretty swirly pattern with the Pearescent Embossing powder but it didn’t turn out like I thought
5- I cut the inside panels to 5” x 5”, diecut a few back grounds from the Swirls Pattern Plate, and laid them over the panels. I covered the panels and swirls with the embossing paste, then pulled off the swirls. This is where I discovered the problem. It worked for the most part but because the swirls were cut from cardstock some sections didn’t come off and made a bit of a mess.
Oops missed 6
7-9- I cut the card base, and inside panels as shown. The 5” x 5” panel I decided to cover with a thin layer of the Embossing paste. I really wanted it to look like a snowy scene.
10- I diecut and assembled 2 Bam Boxes (Karen has an assembly video which will update to her website soon)
11- Add the church to the card
12- I didn’t want to waste the swirl panels that I made so I diecute them with the circles from the Bam Box set. I also die-cut bigger circles from the darker cardstock. I diecut the Wedding Charms, “Wedding Wishes”, and “to the Mr and Mrs” it didn’t all fit on the circles so I stamped “to the” “and”. I assembled as shown.
13- I assembled the front panel as shown, using some of the swirl paper.
14- I added “Happy Wedding Day” and the bride and groom, and added them to the card front. I added a few gold hearts.
15- I assembled the back with the pieces shown below. The panel is actually a pocket.
16- I added the circles to the Bam Boxes and added one to the back left corner and one on the front right corner
17- I used some weight to hold it down until the adhesive set.
18- I used the clouds from the Castle Pop up as shrubs around the church, I added the sidewalk from the Tiny House dieset.
19- to fill in some of the space I used the circles from the Bam Boxes to make corner pieces to match the pop ups.
20- I added the Embossing paste to the shrubs, sidewalk, and the words.
21- the Cream ribbon is 3/4” wide and the gold ribbon is 3/8”. I cut the card-stock band long enough to wrap around the card with about an inch over lap and slightly narrower than the ribbon. I added some small magnets as a closure.
22- 23- I added the cream ribbon to the card-stock band, then the gold ribbon to the cream ribbon.
24- I added more snow to the greeting and some gold hearts and clear bubbles.
