My Wedding - - PLANNING - By Jac­que­lyn Wil­liams, Stampin’ Up! In­de­pen­dent Demon­stra­tor www.stam­phappy.co.nz

You’ll need:

• Crumb Cake Card­stock – 5.5 by 10 inches (about 14 x 25.5cm) • Crumb Cake en­ve­lope • Printed paper – 2.5 by 10 inches (about 6.4 x 25.5cm) • Twine or rib­bon to match • 1¼ and 13/8 inch cir­cle punches (about 3.2 and 3.5cm) • Scrap of Vanilla card­stock • Hole punch • Ver­samark Ink and Flo­ral stamps of your choice • Die or Kraft knife (*All prod­ucts shown are from Stampin’ Up)

How to:

1. Score or fold Crumb Cake card at 3 inches and 7 inches (about 7.5 and 17.8cm). The mid­dle por­tion will be where the photo is placed; the top por­tion is where the text is placed. You may wish to print the text be­fore cut­ting the card­stock, or you can print it separately and stick on to the sec­tion 2. Us­ing ei­ther a die or a Kraft knife, cut a slit in the bot­tom panel in an upside down U-shape to fit the top panel when the in­vi­ta­tion is closed. You may also opt to skip this step and just use the belly band to hold the in­vi­ta­tion closed 3. Stamp the flower im­ages in Ver­samark on your in­vi­ta­tion, on the top and bot­tom pan­els, and also on the en­ve­lope to match 4. Fold the printed paper to loosely fit around the closed in­vi­ta­tion. Ad­here to­gether into a band. Do not ad­here to the in­vi­ta­tion it­self as you want this to slide on and off 5. Print or hand­write your ini­tials and date onto the Very Vanilla card. Punch with the 1¼ inch (about 3.2cm) cir­cle punch. Punch a 13/8 (about 3.5cm) cir­cle out of the left­over Crumb Cake and ad­here to­gether. Hole punch near the top of the tag 6. Cut ap­prox­i­mately 20 inches (about 51cm) of twine or rib­bon, and wrap around the belly band twice. Thread both ends through the hole and tie or knot to se­cure.
