Marriage is a Journey
I am so happy that the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and it’s coordinating Flourish Thinlits Dies have been continued over for another year. You can see it on pg. 18 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I turn to this set often for elegant cards for various occasions. There are sentiments for wedding sympathy, congratulations, get well, and general cards.
Today I am sharing a wedding card I created using this set. The directions are below. If you need any of the products to make this card or any other supplies, contact me.

- Fold the 8 ½” X 5 ½” piece of Petal Pink in half for your card base.
- Cut the large flourishing flower stem of the Flourish Thinlits Dies out of the Champagne Foil Sheet with the Magnetic Platform and the Big Shot. Run the die back and forth through the Big Shot several times to be sure that the die cut clear through the foil sheet. Remove all the little pieces from the die with the die brush.
- Apply very tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the diecut and adhere to the card front as shown.
- Stamp the ‘Marriage is a Journey’ in the upper left corner of the card with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
- Stamp ‘good thing you get to bring your best friend along’ on the scrap of Petal Pink cardstock and cut it out with the label frame of the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot.
- Adhere to the lower right corner with Stampin’ Dimensionals. (Here’s a little secret. I originally stamped it directly onto the card front but the ink smudged. The label is how I ‘fixed’ my boo boo. I think the raised label is better than what I had originally planned.)
