Once Upon A time there was a girl...and a boy...

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today with a wedding (or engagement) card using the Magical Fantasy dies.  My family has a big wedding coming up this summer and there are lots of activities scheduled so I need a few cards.  When creating this one I certainly had Joe and Abi in mind.
This card can be personalized with the couple's wedding colors for a truly special card.

The card base, oval and sentiment are a pearlized white card stock which makes for an elegant card.  I started by cutting the sentiment from this card stock, the rings from gold and the flowers from plain white card stock.
I used a self adhesive backing on the rings and the sentiment.  When using a self adhesive backing the die often cuts through the card stock but not the backing, making it very easy to lift the die cut piece up off of the backing.

Next, I used sponge daubers and colored the roses using a soft yellow, pink and green.
I often use a silicone mat when I am gluing die pieces together.  While the pieces dry they do not stick to the mat.
Then I cut an oval from the pearlized white and three from pink card stock. 
I stacked and glued them together adding the sentiment and entwining the rings on the sentiment.
I glued this to the card base and added the roses to the sides.
 Finally I added a small rhinestone to one of the rings.
Although this card is mostly white, it has a hint of color in the stacked ovals and the flowers set off the sentiment.
