Wedding card and gift packaging

I cased this card from Lynn Pratt at stampndesign.  She give a free template download to make the wedding dress.  I cut the template out of Whisper White.  I stamped the Baroque swirl image in Versamark and then embossed it in Iridesent Ice.  It actually looks a little like the Bridal designer paper that just retired.  I used 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon for the belt sash and added a clear rhinestone brad.  The groom was made from the template in Whisper White and Basic Black.  The buttons are retired vintage black brads.  I love how this card opens in the middle and the dress hides that fact.
The inside is a 4" x 5 1/4" whisper white piece.  I stamped the Baroque swirl image in Versamark on the corners and then embossed in Iridisent Ice.  I used the Whimiscal Words stamp set for the sentiment "Congratulations" in Basic Black.
The frame came in a box so I just covered the box in kraft wrapping paper.  I added a white tulle bow so that you could see the date.  The envelope has the Baroque swirl stamped in Basic Black.
And finally the happy couple on their wedding day!  Howard took this picture and I love the lighting in it.
Have a magical day!

Hi Cindy, I was on Monika's blog today & found yours re: wedding card. I am unable to download the template for some unknown reason.I am going to a wedding & thought how cute. Can you lead me as to how to get the template? I get to where it says download template & it takes the 20 seconds, then nothing appears. I am stumpted. BTW I like your blog am adding it to my evergrowing list.Thanks,Barb Nesplic can be reached at

Hi, there. I happened across your post, and am wondering if you're still giving the templates away for the wedding card. I'm also wondering what you used for the numbers in the framed gift. Both ideas are FABULOUS!

Dear Cindy, I'm looking for a new idea for a wedding card and I found your amazing and beautiful card. Of course I had to rework it immediately.
I posted my card on my blog with a link to you.
Many Greetings Heike
