June Weddings

Happy Tuesday All!
Tuesdays are my day to showcase an inspiration card over on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and since it is JUNE, I felt a Wedding style card was in order!  I actually have a June wedding to attend later in the month ... maybe this will be my card of choice for the bride.

Making a wedding card is made so easy with all the beautiful dies available at the Dies R Us Store.  Although I love my stamps/inks/digis & markers ... the dimension achieved by using dies is fabulous!  And, in my mind, so appropriate for those really 'special' occasions.

Here are the dies/embossing folder I've used on today's wedding card creation:

Remember, if the die you are wanting is Out of Stock, simply click on the 'Put Me On The Waiting List' tab and you will be notified via email when it is back in stock.

Aren't these new 'smaller' gardenia flowers just precious!  Using these flower strip dies make it so easy to create a flower and the gardenia strip is one of my favorites!  I LOVED my larger gardenia strip die and when they came out with this new smaller version ... I just had to pop right over to our store and make a purchase.  Here's a photo to give you an idea of the size difference between the two.
Gardenia #B339 is the larger one on the left.
Small Gardenia #B433 is the smaller one on the right.

(Believe it or not!  This is actually the TRUE COLOR of the flowers, ribbon on my card!  Don't know why my camera likes to turn my PINKS to PEACH from time to time!  Uugh!)
