While at convention I saw several wedding card samples, but one in particular really stood out for me. I decided I wanted to CASe or recreate this beautiful card.
Although I spoke briefly with the very gifted and talented stamper who made the original card, I didn't get her name in order to credit her. So, if anyone recognizes this card and/or
attended Convention and knows who created it, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
One of the reasons this wedding card stood out for me is the use of the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder to make a square card face. What a great and unusual technique!
Here's my version:
To emboss the square on this piece I placed the 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of card stock inside the embossing folder so the edges were straight and even on the top and two sides and then I ran it through the Big Shot Machine. I was careful to only roll 2 3/4 inches into the card, then I rolled the plate backwards until I could remove it from the machine. I then carefully placed the Embossing Folder on the non-embossed side of the card and repeated this half-way roll process. The result is a perfect square tulip frame on this square layer.
Note: Because the Embossing Folder has to be rolled through the Big Shot sideways, this causes a lot of pressure and stress on the EF seam, so I would recommend not doing this process for swap or multiple cards.

The two small birds are cut out using the Bird Builder Punch. The wing on each bird is mounted with dimensionals and a small basic rhinestone was added for the eyes.
