Handmade wedding card as showcased in Kylie Bertucci's Blog Highlight


If you are visiting my blog for the first time, hi! my name is Kim and I live in the UK. If you live in UK, The Netherlands, Germany, France and Austria, you can purchase Stampin' Up! products from my online shop. If you are visiting from further afield, a very warm welcome to you! I hope you find some inspiration here today. You are more than welcome to follow me through any of my social media channels and keep up to date with my craft creations


Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci's Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight. Our theme for this highlight is Wedding Cards. 

I recently held a craft day for some of my team at work. I asked the ladies attending to look through my Pinterest board to choose which cards they would like to make. Abi really liked a version of this card I made last year (click here to see it). Thankfully, I still had some of the (now retired but totally amazing Timeless Elegance DSP) left over. So I decided to make an alternative version using current DSP from the A Little Foxy DSP Stack. 

Admittedly, the wooden sentiment is retired but you can replace this with a die cut sentiment or any 3D sentiment you have in your crafty stash. The wooden sentiment in this version has been coated in Versamark ink and then embossed in silver to coordinare with the Smokey Slate.

The flowers have been die cut using the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies which are now retiring. Make sure you order these soon before they sell out!


You can order all of the products I have used to create this card (except the wooden element) from my online shop (you can find Shop Online in the menu bar at the top of the screen) - however, if you would like to get in touch to place your order, ask a question or request a catalogue - you can contact me through any of my social media channels found in the sidebar, or you can simply email me by clicking here.

If you like my card, I would really appreciate your vote. Just click on the button below and find my project under number 36. To vote, all you have to do is click on the heart in the top right hand corner of the image.

  1. Hi Kim, I was looking through all of the picks being highlighted.. I skimmed over them all and yours caught my eye...After looking ta them all I still kept coming back to yours, I think it's the colour combo and those stripes. This all comes together for a gorgeously striking and memorable project Kim and I for one LOVE it x

  4. Beautiful card, Kim! I had to do a double take on the DSP. I've totally overlooked that gorgeous bold stripe in the Foxy stack!

    1. It's gorgeous isn't it. I also love the black and very vanilla stripe that was in the Timeless Elegance DSP in last years catalogue

    1. Thanks Cheryl, no stamping on this card, just some lovely DSP and some great die cuts. I;m sad to see them both retiring in a month x

  8. We had our wedding here and couldn’t have asked for anything more than what we got with the chef and staff. The food was amazing and my family is still raving about how great it was. The wedding venues staff was so on top of everything.
