Two Hearts Wedding

Hello, crafters! If you know me, you know I just LOVE using dies! Here is a card I made for a challenge at Dies R Us where the theme was "weddings".

I began with creating my base card in white card stock and layering it with white,  the edges of which were embossed with gold EP. Next, I composed my sentiment, printed it out on white and then sized and cut the panel to fit my card base and adhered it to the base.

My border was created using a die from Sue Wilson's Italian Collection set. I die cut and embossed 2 borders and then adhered them together to form the two- edged border. After adhering the border to my card, I added Liquid Pearls down the center. 

The two hearts were cut with a die from HFC Timeless Amour in white card stock. Then, I brushed Versamark over each heart, covered them with gold EP and embossed them. These were then popped on to my base with dimensionals, one heart overlapping the other.

As a final touch, I assembled a double loop bow, cut with Sue Wilson's Filigree Ribbon dies and adhered it to my border, adding a pearl in the center.

I hope you liked this card and that it gave you some inspiration to create. Thanks for stopping by and make it a craft filled day!
