To a very special couple...

My lovely son and his beautiful fiance were married last Saturday (I've added a photo at the bottom of this post). It was 7 years to the day since Nathan asked Katie on a date and 2 years to the day since he proposed and Katie said 'Yes!'. Katie is a beautiful girl anyway, but she was incredibly stunning on Saturday (I don't think I'm biased!). They are so well matched and are perfect for each other. I  wanted to make them a special card to let them know how much we love them and are so proud of them.both. I knew Nathan would be wearing his kilt outfit, but I'd no clue what Katie's Wedding Dress was going to be like, but looked out my Stampin' Up! Artisan Embellishment kit and some favourite discontinued DSP I'd been saving for an extra special card

I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw the dies that the talented Karen Burniston designed exclusively for Stampin' Up!.  She even has some instructional videos on how to use the dies too.
The dies are called the Card Base Pop'n Cuts (with the slits in the corners for closing the card) and the Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts insert and also the Dress Up framelits.

I thought I'd finish with a picture of the gorgeous Bride and Groom

Keep Crafting!
