First, grab a white sheet of cardstock and cut it 5.5" x 11". Fold in half, so it's 5.5"x5.5"
Next, cut a 4.75" x 4.75" piece of this floral paper and secure it to the front of the card.
Next, cut a 4" x 2.25" piece of the dark blue paper, and a 3.5" x 2" piece of the wood chevron sheet. Glue them together, as pictured and then secure them to the center of the front of the card.
Find the 'This Is What Happy Looks Like' banner and glue it to the center of the card with your Prima Glue Pen, as pictured.
Now for the fun part! Gather some butterflies. Whether you punch them out, or fussy cut them from the sheets, find the ones you like best. Fold the wings up, and glue only the bodies to the card, so they are 3D. Add as many or as few as you want.
Now for the inside of the card. Find this watercolor sheet and cut a 5" x 5" piece out and glue it to the right side of the inside of the card.
Grab the flower sheet and cut a 1.5" x 5.5" strip. Glue this to the inside, right of the card, as pictured.
Cut a 2.5" x 5.5" piece of the dark blue sheet and secure it on the left inside of the card, centered.
Grab the Wood Chevron sheet and your gift card. Wrap the paper around the gift card, but leaving the top open. Fold it nicely and cut the excess paper off. Then, remove the gift card and glue the pocket together.
Glue it to the center of the left side, once it's all dry.
Now, punch out the Say Yes To New Adventures piece and secure that to the center of the gift card pocket. Again, find some butterflies that you like, fussy cut them, and glue the bodies to the inside of the card.
Next, cut a 4" x 3.25" piece from the dark blue sheet and a 4" x 3" white cardstock piece. Glue them to the lower side of the inside, right of the card. Then find this 3 hard cutout and glue that to the lower corner.
If you wish to add more details, ... do!
I grabbed my FotoBella Rhinestones and added a couple throughout the card design.
Now, let's make a custom envelope. Grab this striped sheet and your We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
Follow the directions on the board to cut a 6" x 6" card.
Glue the flaps closed.
With your Fiskars Tag Punch, punch 3 tags out from different papers.
Then, glue the Congrats tag to the front tag.
Glue the tags to the front of the envelope. Then add some other details, like butterflies and leaves!
Your card and matching envelope is now complete!
Write a heartfelt note and give to the lucky couple!
