Wedding Carriage

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

Have you had an opportunity to visit the online store to see the new dies that have been released? There are 20 new wedding dies and 17 fun new nesting shapes.

Janet (our video artist) has put together a video showcasing all the new nesting shapes dies. Just click on the photo below to be taken to the CottageCutz YouTube channel.
Now onto the card that I have created. Today, I am featuring the new Wedding Horse & Carriage and the Wedding Bells with Bow dies. So let's get started with some details.
I am attending an outdoor wedding in September that will be held at a farm type venue. I have seen the property and rustic elegance would be a perfect description. The ceremony will be held in front of a lake on the property and the bride will make her appearance in a carriage. So the new wedding horse & carriage die was spot-on for my card idea.
Step 1: I like to make wedding cards with the same colors that the bride has chosen. I always think that's a great compliment to her. I am using chocolate, pearlized gold and a copper metallic paper. Found these papers in my stash that are a good match for her wedding colors.
Chocolate Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Pearlized Gold Layer: 5 1/4" x 4 1/8"
 Step 2: Embossed the pearlized gold panel with a scrollwork embossing folder. I like the added interest it gave my card.
Step 3:  Cut all the die cuts at this point. The horse & carriage are cut in chocolate,  and the bells and bow are cut in copper. I wanted another layer to my card so I used the largest stitched oval die as a backdrop for the carriage and bow.
Step 4: Decided to add some burlap ribbon to enhance the rustic appeal of my card. Just a strip across the middle of the embossed panel will work fine.  Attached the dies to the oval panel and added a couple of copper hearts.

Step 5: Since I had the bells already cut in copper, I used them to finish the inside of my card. Added another layer of the pearlized gold cardstock, more hearts and the celebrate phrase completed the inside. The hearts are part of the new Mr & Mrs with hearts die.
I hope I have given you some inspiration on a way to use some of these new wedding dies. See you next Saturday and happy crafting!!!

Beautiful! Such a pretty and special card for a happy couple Mary. Love how you used the oval die inside the center of the embossed cardstock. What brand of pearl stock did you use? I've had trouble with pearl stock cracking when it's embossed.
