CottageCutz Wedding Card for Son

Greetings Crafters.  Well the day has finally come.  This card was created for my Son for his Wedding with the gorgeous Cottage Cutz dies from last years Wedding Collection.  I just loved that release-so many pretty themed dies to chose from.
This is the box I created to house the easel card.  I showed this to my husband.  I said see the card I made for Wesley,....he said that's not a card it's a box....lol  He's right!!!  The box is 6 x 6 x 2.  My flowers are pretty chunky on the card so I had to create the box to accommodate them.  For decorating the top of the box I used CottageCutz Bride & Groom die and the Wedding Day Expressions Die.
This is the easel card.  I used the Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One to create the flowers.  Of course, I had to use burlap as that is part of their Wedding theme.
The top of the easel card showcases the Wedding Rings die from CottageCutz.  I cut it out on kraft card stock and the diamond and bow was cut on white cardstock  I glittered the bow and the diamond for contrast.  There are little rolled burlap roses tucked in with the Spellbinders roses.
For the bottom of the easel card I used the Elegant Champagne Glass Cottage Cutz Die and the Mr. & Mrs. Expressions Die.  Isn't that pretty!  I made this so that a little envelope tucks in behind that die cut.  I will put my sentiment and gift in there.
Thank you so much for visiting today.  I sure to appreciate it.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon!
