This Fancy Fold Wedding Card is sure to delight any bride and groom. It has a card band included in the design. Card Bands are the hot new trend in card making.
This card fits in an A7 envelope and can be personalized to any color scheme. In one version I embossed all the light blue pieces. I loved the effect but hated my embossing folder so I guess I need to get some new ones. (Just what I need, an excuse to go craft shopping. LOL)
You will need:
- Heavy cardstock (Dk Blue and Lt. Blue)
- Embossing folder (optional)
Cutting the Card
I did the card in solid colors. Patterned paper can be used but it must be a light and/or small pattern. I did mine in shades of blue but any color will work.
Cut the card and the cricut will do the writing. I used a black pen but silver would look great too. If you want to change what the card says, that can easily be done before cutting.
Everything is just the two colors. The cricut divides the light blue into two mats but they can be combined together. Simply turn the diamond on the second mat sideways. If you need to learn how to move things around the mat, see my video.
If you want to emboss the light blue pieces, now is the time. Re crease all the folds and tuck in the little triangles. Open and close the card a few times to make sure it works OK. The little points fold inside the card.
The first thing to do is assemble the embellishments. Liquid glue works best for this. Once you have all the embellishments assembled, then put the card together. Look at the pictures to see where everything goes.
The card band can be folded around the card after it is assembled and closed. I gave you a little extra length. Just cut off the extra.
Your card is done! It fits in an A7 envelope.
