# Cuties 3 # expandable borders

On Your Special Day by Julie Lavalette


Lovely to have you stop by today. It’s Julie here hosting the blog. This week my Mojo was at an all time low... don’t you just hate when that happens. So I decided I would play along with our Wedding Theme Challenge for this week and I was soon back on track.

I decided to make a 6x6 card and thought it would be nice to have colours resembling the bride, groom and bridesmaid on my card, so I chose White, Grey and Lavender to work with. I cut out my French Lattice die twice in grey card and pieced them together to fit over my lavender paper to form a square. When doing this I found it easier to have my lilac paper cut roughly to the size I needed. I then worked out where my crosses matched best to make my join and re-align the 2 pieces together and glued onto my lilac card,  finally trimming around the edges. My topper is two stamps stamped onto a pearlised linen card and die cut out with a little grey card mounted behind to make the design POP.



You will see I have used my Cuties Strip around my card. This die makes gorgeous flowers but is also great to use as accents onto your card. I die cut out in white card and inked the edges with a lavender shade. On the reverse of the paper I pressed my embossing tool into each petal, this gives a little more dimension to your card as doesn’t look flat when glued on.
 

I placed the Victorian Flourish die onto my card and used a couple of the waste pieces onto my design too. My miniature roses were cut out from linen card and when the glue had dried I rubbed over some lavender ink. Everything was placed onto my card along with my final touches of bling.

Thanks for looking at my card and I’d love if you have time to leave me a comment. Good Luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge. I will see you all next Saturday.
