Last Enchanting Days with Stampin' Up!

Where on earth has July gone? You only have till tomorrow to grab the Enchanting July offer - spend over £45 (before p & p) and you will receive 2 reels of gorgeous organdy ribbon in Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade and 30 coordinating patterned brads for FREE!

Today's card looks complicated but is actually really easy to do with the fabulous Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I first saw this gorgeous wedding card that Chris had made when I was blog hopping and decided to have a go myself.
I have used the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper - I love the colours in these papers but they are only available until tomorrow so don't miss out!
I started with a piece of 12"x12" Very Vanilla Textured card and scored it using both the Simply Scored and the Diagonal Plate. It was then a case of making sure the folds were crisp - the Bone Folder is a fantastic tool for this.  The patterned papers were then cut to fit. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations and was stamped in Calypso Coral ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla card and matted onto a piece of patterned paper and Calypso Coral card. The fan shapes were cut from one of the patterned papers.
The belly band is a strip of Very Vanilla Card layered with a border punched from the patterned paper using the Lace Ribbon Border. Two Decorative Label punches were added to the ends of the band, which was then secured using a piece of the Lucky Limeade Organdy Ribbon. The flowers are from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack finished with a tiny Pearl
