CottageCutz Wedding Day Trellis and Vines

 Today it's Carol here and I have something to share with you using CottageCutz Trellis and Vines Die.  Isn't this amazing!  I can just imagine the look on the Bride and Grooms face when they open this beautiful handmade card to celebrate their special day!
 To be quite frank with you I have no idea what the name of this style card is.  I have seen it done different ways but I am not sure if I ever read what the name of it was.  For all intentional purposes I will give you measurements on how I created this.  It is so easy and it looks so impressive.
 You are going to use a piece of card stock that measure 6" x 12".  You are going to score this piece at 3-3/8", 5-1/8", 6-7/8", and 8-5/8". 
 This is to show you what it will look like once you use your bone folder to crease the scores.  This card will stand on it's own beautiful and folds up nicely.  As you can see in the picture below.

The Martha Stewart Decorative Doily punch around the page was use to decorate the outside of this card.  I punched it continually.  There is a little bit of "fudging" on the 6" side but the 12" worked out perfectly. 
Use a cuttlebug embossing folder of your choice to create the embossed pieces on this card.  The measurements are 2 pieces for the ends at 2-7/8"x5" and 3 pieces for the center at 1-5/8"x5".  After embossing run Rangers Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink ever so lightly on the edges.  The center piece is the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Oval.  Cut one large oval in white and one the next size down in pink.  Emboss the pink piece with the same cuttlebug embossing folder and layer with foam dimensional pads.
Use the Vines and Flowers from the Trellis to decorate the outside edges of the card.  Doesn't it finish it off perfectly!  You will need 6 of the long vines and 2 of the small vines to completely decorate the edge as seen here.  The last finishing touch if desired are some pearl lines.

Thanks so much for viewing this project.  If you have any questions, please just leave a comment and I will answer to the best of my ability.  This was a bunch of fun to make and I would love to see yours!  Have a great day!
