Wedding Card

After using one of the basic templates from Free Craft Downloads last week I thought I would have another go This time using one of the "front" templates rather than a "middle" one.
I have decided to use the bell (front) template and make a wedding card Here is how I did it.

I used

The A4 bell front Template
bells 1 Backing Paper
Some gold border peel offs
Some wedding embellishments
(which I highlighted parts of with a clear sakura gelly roll pen and added a pink backing card)

How I made it
I printed out the bells backing paper on plain white card and folded the card in half so that the bells design will be on the inside and it will be an A5 size card.
I printed out the template on a separate piece of card, cut out the outline of the bell (keep this to reuse ) and placed the template on the white side of the card I am making.

I drew around the bell in pencil, then cut out the left hand side of the bell (using a craft knife)
Fold the right hand side of card over to the left side and crease to get this

I put the bell template over the card and very faintly drew around the left side so you know where to add the peel offs.
Don't worry about the line showing, the peel offs will cover over it
If you rub it out it might affect the design on the card
Add a border peel off all around the outside edge of the bell
Now you will see the bell as a whole

Add your embellishments to the card wherever you decide you want them.

On the inside of the card I added a verse in a frame I measured the inner frame and typed up a verse to fit then put the frame over the verse and then put it on the same pink card as the other embellishments cut around it and put it on the inside of the card in the centre

The verse I used was
You have chosen each other
Above all the rest

To share your love and laughter

To live life at its best

May you always fill each others lives
With love and happiness
Congratulations on your
Wedding Day

Hope you like the card - You can use any of the "Front" Templates in this way for any occasion
