Wedded Bliss- Heart Window Card

I recently made a wedding card that I was really happy with. 
I used this pearlized paper that had such a wonderful luster on it's own, and when I embossed the paper the pearl look really came through.

As you can see there is a heart shaped window cut from the front that I trimmed in my heart frame cut file on both sides.


The top and bottom edges are trimmed in my heart border cut file.

Then, I added lots of Stickles Diamond. (This took a while, but it wa so worth it.

The inside has a liner that I embossed on the top and bottom edges then placed one of my heart cutout files in the center. The heart shows through the window. I am thinking a picture of a bride and groom would look great too.

Here is a great tip that I may not have shared before...
If I am having trouble getting my card to close when taking pictures, I add a couple of pieces of washi tape that I have rolled. This keeps the front closed for photos but does not hurt the card.

I plan to make several more of these to sell. Don't you just love it when a card comes together so well? LOL
Hope you like it as much as I do.
