Dies R Us Inspiration - Mr & Mrs

Hello Friends!
How was your Valentine's Day?
Can you believe we are already half way through February?
 Today I have a card to share for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog
  and, since I was in need of some wedding cards in my show stash,
that's the direction I went in today!

 One of the dies I used on this card I've had for quite some time and never think to use it and the other two I purchased recently.  This was so quick & easy, I think I will created a few more in different colors.  You never know what folks will need for this years wedding season, but I figured you are always safe with this elegant color combination.

Here's the quick & easy steps taken to bring this card together...

I began with a white A6 card base, then die cut another white panel 1/4" smaller than my card base.  Using this panel I die cut my Gemini die about 2/3  in from one end.

Next I cut a black card stock panel 1/8" smaller than my white card base.
I adhered my white Gemini panel on top of the black panel then once again laid the 'edge cutting' portion of this die set (there are 3 dies in this set) slightly down from the white panel and die cut it.  This gave me the 'matting' panel I was wanting to achieve.

To add the touch of color, I used the hearts that popped out of this panel that was die cut for another project (seen here).

Here's another peek at the finished card . . .

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today!
