A contemporary wedding card...

Today's card is perfect for that contemporary couple.  I had seen a card similar to this a while back and thought it would be perfect.  I changed up a few things and figured out the easiest way to do this.  The get the rose in it's original place, run the die through the Big Shot.  Carefully lift the die, leaving all pieces in place.  Use 3 strips of Washi Tape to hold everything together.  On the back, use small dots of Tombo Liquid Glue on the parts you want adhered to the card, then put the whole piece on the card, dry a minute or two, then remove the outside and the rose outline image.  This is a super gorgeous look and we used the outline on the inside pocket.

The leaves on the card base were stamped with the leaf image from the Rose Wonder stamp set and the words on the front and inside are from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set.  I cut the little hearts off the "Happy Together" image for a cleaner, more versatile image.  

Here's a little close up of the die cut rose.  Beautiful! Make sure you have a clean cut on the rose (run it through a few times) before removing the die and holding together with Washi Tape.  Also make sure to only put glue where you want it or else everything will stick to the card.  

I added a pocket to the left inside of the card for a gift card, check or cash.  I stamped one leaf and added the rose outline to the pocket as well.
