Wedding Card with Velvet Trim by Crystal

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Hello Ribbons Unlimited friends!
It's Crystal here with a wedding card made with Nylvalour velvet ribbon.  This ribbon has a rich plush feel and it is so luxurious. I am using Nylvalour Velvet Ribbon in  Citron  7/8"...I love this color with grey and since it was so rich feeling I decide to use it as trim on a wedding card!

I will walk you thru how I made this card
I started with 8 1/2" by 4 1/4" card base , I scored it at 5 1/2" next I cut way a 2" by 5 1/2" slice

Next I cut two pieces of designer paper (I am using a flocked paper from DCWV La Creme stack).  Cut at 2" by 5 1/4".  My white inside is 5 1/4 " by 4 '.  Cut one piece of the ribbon at 5 1/4"  and one piece at 4 1/2' .  With the 5 1/4" piece of ribbon,  find the center then with a threaded needle gather the center then singe the end of this piece.  For the 4 1/2" piece of ribbon flod both ends to center and over lap a little and then gather center with needle and thread.  Add the designer paper to the outside and inside of the 2 1/4" flap.

To attach my ribbon I used score tape on back of 5 1/4" pc , add the ribbon to top edge of the front flap.

For my hearts and sentiment I cut them with the Silhouette Cameo.  The hearts come standard with your machine (cut at 1.855 x 3.455) and Congrats  (cut  at 1.000 x 2.320 ) I bought in the Silhouette store (links below) .  I so love how small and nice this machine cuts!patience and RU wedding 018
I used my small Xyron machine to add adhesive to my words

I use this adhesive remover eraser to get any gummy extra off the front of the word and the openings.

I want to glitter my hearts and my Xyron it not big enough so add versamark to my hearts and heat n stick  powder and melt with heat tool and add my glitter and it sticks so the glitter and it won't fall off!  Glue on hearts and add the Congrats over them and our card is done!
