Congratulations on your Wedding Card & Top 10 winners blog hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci


Hello and a very warm welcome to my blog Handmade by Kim! My name is Kim Price and I live in the UK and I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Today I am taking part in a blog hop with the other top ten winners from Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights, how exciting! Our theme is the same as the highlights and is cards for weddings.


I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part in this blog hop alongside super talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all around the world. To view all of the amazing projects they have made, please scroll down to the end of this post and click on the links to visit their blogs.

I'd like to say a massive thank you, I wouldn't be featuring in this blog hop today without all of the blog readers of all of the demonstrators who showcased their work in Kylie's International Blog Highlights and who took the time to cast a vote.


I decided to go for muted tones for this card. I have used Crumb Cake cardstock for my card base and coordinating patterned paper from the Falling in Love DSP. I used my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to sparkle up the edge of the card and also the matt for the sentiment inside. You can see this better in the first image on this post. I think this looks lovely and coordinates with the image on this paper and just brings a special touch to this card. 

The sentiment I have used is from the Floral Phrases stamp set which I have stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock.


For each butterfly, I die cut 2 shapes out of vellum and one out of Very Vanilla cardstock. There is a vellum butterfly under the Very Vanilla and then I layered another vellum butterfly on top of the Very Vanilla butterfly. The very top butterfly has also had the Wink of Stella treatment. The subtle sparkle is just lovely but is hard to see in these photos.

Next I die cut the sentiment Congrats 6 times using the sentiment from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlit Dies and adhered them on top of each other using Tombow glue, this just adds the right amount of dimension and for the sentiment to stand out from the butterflies. I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen on the sentiment to add one last bit of sparkle to the card. Can you tell it's been a while since I last used my glitter pen?
