When I first started making this card, I was just going to use the new Flower Pattern Plate and create a simple flat card. But as you can see I couldn't stop there and decided to create a pop-up card.

For the front of the card I die cut the Flower Pattern Plate from white and dark teal cardstock. If you turn the pattern plate 180 degrees and place the white panel over the dark teal panel, you can see parts of the pattern from the teal panel through the white panel. I then adhered this panel to a side folding teal card.

I added circles to the right hand side of the card using dies from the Crosshatch - Circles and Snowman Twist Circle Pop-up die sets.

I added the bride and groom which is from The Rabbit Hole Designs Happily Ever After stamp set. To finish off the card I added the sentiment from Waffle Flower Crafts Wedding Day stamp set which I die cut using Taylored Expressions Mini Strips die set.


For the inside of the card, I die cut the Flower Pattern Plate two more  times from White and Dark Teal cardstock. After layering the two panels together, I trimmed them down so I could place a panel on either edge of the card.

I added another bride and groom image from The Rabbit Hole Designs stamp set. I also added a label to the left hand side of the card, for a handwritten message.



For the centre of the card, I used the new Paper Frames Pop-up die set. This die cut pop-up is attached to the centre of the card using tabs on either side of the labels.

I added the "Mr & Mrs" sentiment to the labels in the centre of the pop-up. I like how this pop-up can be added to a card at any time while making your card, so if you decide at the last minute like I did it is easy to add to your card.


I posted this card a couple of months ago, but then the release was delayed. So I thought I would add it to my post today seeing it uses one of the other new Pattern Plates - Tiles Pattern Plates. This time around I did just make a flat card, but this Pattern Plates are perfect for adding an interesting background to your cards. You can see more info about this card including the inside of the card on the original blog post here.

Well that is about it from me today, thank you for dropping by. To continue on the blog hop, click on the next person on the list which is the fabulous Karen Aicken!

I LOVED the Swirl background the moment I saw it when Karen's preview popped up on YouTube yesterday. Liked the flower one but was "meh" about the tile background until I saw YOUR card! You really made it pop and it is now on my list too! I'm glad Karen has gotten into these pattern plates, I have some similar types I love using on her cards and glad I can now buy some from her!

I love the front of your card and especially love that you added the new version of the Anita Frames on the inside!
