Karen Burniston Sneak Peek Week - Wedding Charms!

 Hello and welcome to Day 3 of Sneak Peek Week for the new Karen Burniston December 2022 New Release! I am so excited to show you another great card, this time using the brand-new Wedding Charms dies. For this card, I used Karen Burniston's Label Charm Pop-Up die set along with the new Wedding Charms. 

This new set comes with a bride and groom, a pair of champaign glasses, a set of wedding rings and the "Best Wishes" sentiment. 

For this card I started with an A2 side fold card using an off-white smooth heavy weight cardstock. Using Karen Burniston's Rectangle - Crosshatch dies in the largest size, I cut three panels using this beautiful wedding paper from Echo Park - "Just Married". 

I die cut the front panel die from the Label Charm Pop-Up (which is the one that turns when you open the card), but first I measured the center point so that I positioned the die exactly in the middle. I then measured the center point for two of the patterned paper panels so that when I die cut the patterned paper it would fit perfectly on the front and inside panel of the card. 

Once I added all the pieces of patterned paper, I then created an outer edge to go around the cut out on the front and inside panel of the card. I used a pink cardstock that was similar to the pink of the patterned paper. I had to do this by hand because there isn't a die in the Label Charm set that allows you to do with the larger die cut. You can with the smaller die cuts, but not the largest. 

I then die cut the inside pieces that attach to the front label. I used the back side of the patterned paper I used for the background of the card. I glued these into the card with Lineco Neutral pH glue which you can get through Karen Burniston's online store. 

I then die cut some center pieces, one for the middle "label charm" and one for the mounted label charm. These pieces have a really nice, pierced look around the edges which I really like! Just gives them a little extra decoration. 

I then die cut out all my Wedding Charms. For the bride and groom, I die cut the brides dress from white cardstock and glitter cardstock. For the groom's tux, I die cut the tux in black and red and then the small piece for the shirt in white cardstock. I trimmed the bow tie from the red cardstock piece and added it to the black tux. 

I die cut the Champaigne glasses from heavy weight vellum and added glitter gold for the liquid part. 

On the front of the card, I added the wedding rings, which I die cut from gold cardstock and white glitter cardstock for the diamond. 

I die cut the "Best Wishes" sentiment from white glitter cardstock and black cardstock and glued them together to make the sentiment pop out and add some dimension. 

I die cut some hearts that come with the Label Charms Pop-Up set and added them around the card. 

This is a simple yet elegant card that will be perfect to give the special couple on their big day! These Wedding Charms can be used on any pop-up card or even for an engagement or anniversary card! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
