- Whip Cream cardstock
- Journey Brush Gold cardstock
- Gold Glitter cardstock
- Grand Cabinet 3D Card die
- Layered Happily Ever After die

- Die cutting machine. This is an intricate die, I personally recommend an electric cutting machine, such the Gemini or Genimi Jr. Of course, these dies will work with Platinum 6 Cutting Machine, but you will need to make several passes.
- Ribbon and embellishments of your choice.
Cut out your pieces for the card – scroll toward the bottom of this post to see the proper die & cardstock setup. Then, after cutting your pieces out, come back to the “ASSEMBLY INTRRUCTIONS”. TIP: it’s easier if you secure the dies together with low-tack tape (washi or painter’s) before cutting.
ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: We’ll build this card from back to front.
- Step 1: Fold and score with a bone folder along the score lines of the 2 side pieces. Make sure the cut lines are closer to bottom of card on each of the side pieces. Add craft glue along the narrow inside folded edges at the back of each piece, one side at a time, then attach the gold glitter back (4 tabs cut off) with the glitter side facing the front (inside) of the card. Press firmly for a few minutes til glue sets.
- Step 2: Take the Bride & Groom die cut and insert all four tabs through the side slots closest to the gold glitter back. Make sure the tabs are pulled all the way through all of the slots, so the edges of this piece are fluch with the sides. Now lock into place by pulling the center of this piece gently, but firmly downward. When the bottom of this piece lines up with the bottom of the gold glitter back, it is locked into place.
- Step 3: Take one of the Brush Gold pieces and lock into place in the next set of slots, as in Step 2.
- Step 4: Take the Happily Ever After die cut and lock into place in the next set of slots, as in Step 2.
- Step 5: Take the last Brush Fold piece and lock into place in the next set of slots, as in Step 2.
- Step 6: Add craft glue along the narrow outside folded edges at the front of the side pieces, one side at a time, then attach the remaining Whip Cream die cut piece on the top, so that this piece covers the narrow folded strip. Press firmly for a few minutes til glue sets.
- Step 7: Embellish as you wish, or leave the card plain – it is a real stunner all by itself!!
