Beautiful Bridal Card

Today I finally was able to finish this very pretty bridal card.  The card already comes pre-made with the bridal dress cut out, a pretty layer of netting inserted for the dress as well as a floral design dry embossed around the dress.

As you can see, the card is very pretty just left the way it comes out of the package.


I wanted to spiffy it up a bit, so I added a whole bunch of punched flowers and leaves.  I stayed with the creamy white color scheme and only added a bit of pink and pale green.  I used Nellie's Choice floral embossing & punch sets: FLP022 & FLP027, Nellie's leafy branch punch, FLP008 (I cut off the tiny leaves and used them separately), and tiny flower/butterfly twin punch, TMP001.

Here is the completed card with small pearls that were made with the Viva Decor Pearl pen and of course a bit of stickles.

I really like the way this came together; very elegant with just a taste of color.

I hope you can see the detail of all the flowers and pearls in this photograph.  Remember, if you click on the photo, a new window will open with a larger view of the photo!


These creamy white "Pontura" cards come in many designs.  You get 3 cards and envelopes in the package and you can decorate them to your liking.  The three tier wedding cake card would also look fabulous decorated with punched flowers in the wedding's color scheme.  These cards are in stock and the perfect way to personalize a wedding or bridal shower card.  There is also a great floppy hat that you can decorate to your heart's content. The possibilities are endless!

I have to say that punching out all these flowers and layering them was very relaxing and therapeutic! I felt as though a was lost in these beautiful flowers.  A truly stress free way to spend the afternoon!

Looking forward to sharing more of these with you,
                  ~Anna

    1. Thank you so much for your compliments on the card!!! As for the card base -- I can't get these anymore BUT since you're from the UK, you should be able to get them there. They are called Pontura cards and they are from the Netherlands. I think they are Nellie Snellen's. Hope this helps!
