Wedding Card

I have seen these cute wedding dress cards all over Pinterest.  I could not find one that had a template that I could download on my apple so I created my own version. 

The card base is 6 1/2" x 10" scored on the 10" side at 3 1/2" and 8".
The insert (cream) is 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
The inside pocket ($5 was just to see if it fit ha ha) 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" 

For the Tux:
The shirt is made from Stampin up tab punch.  I just cut the corners to make the shirt.
The Tux is 1/2 of a 4" square cut in half to make a triangle and a slit cut in the middle and sides folded back. 
I used the boho punch to cut 5 small flowers attached with a brad and fluffed. 
For the dress:
I took a piece of printer paper and hand drew a dress.  I picked the side I liked best, folded the paper in half and cut out only the best side.  This gave me a mirror cut out on each side.  When I was happy with the template I cut out the dress on card stock.  
I embossed the dress (don't know the name of the folder)
Then I punched two small holes, threaded tulle and tied in a bow.  I added 3 mini pearls to the top of the dress  

As you can see the dress overlaps the black (Tux area) and is slightly longer than the card base.  The shirt sits up slightly over the top of the card.  

This card fit perfectly into an 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" envelope.  
Thanks for stopping by!
