Christy’s Build-A-House Wedding Card

Hey, everyone, it’s Christy here with another card for our Something See Through Challenge! My cousin is getting married next weekend so I decided to make a card for the happy couple. I used the new Build-A-House Lawn Cuts and turned it into a wedding chapel with the bride and groom making their getaway on a bicycle!

I started by stamping my images from Bicycle Built for You and the little bell from Trim the Tree. I used Copic markers to color them in and then cut them out with the matching dies. I set those aside to work on my wedding chapel.  The building was cut from Fog cardstock, and the roof, awning, door, and window from Black Licorice. The glue tube works great for attaching even the tiniest die cuts because of its super fine nozzle!

Once I had all the pieces ready to go, it was time for assembly! First came the Stitched Tree Borders cut from Kraft cardstock adhered directly to my card base with tree tops of Noble Fir and Cilantro. Adding them in the background created a feeling of depth and distance. Next came a Noble Fir Stitched Hillside Border to give me some rolling hills out behind the church. On top of that I added the parking lot using Narwhal cardstock trimmed down with a Simple Stitched Hillside Border. Before I glued this down, I wrapped my sentiment around it, white heat embossed on Vellum.

I popped up my “Little White Church” with foam tape and added the bell inside the window, and the steps out in front. Then I adhered all my images with a combination of Foam Tape and Glue Tube. The top right corner was looking a little empty so I added a cloud from Spring Showers and a tiny butterfly from Butterfly Kisses.
To finish off the card, I added some Glitter Pen to the bride’s dress and veil, and to the centers of all the flowers. I also stamped a few images and a sentiment on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

I hope you were inspired by today’s card and feel excited to make something for our See Through Challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!


Have a wonderful weekend, Fawnatics friends! Happy crafting!

Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

We have a super sweet and talented Guest Designer joining us for this challenge! Help us welcome, Tammy Stark! She shares her amazing creativity on Instagram as paperprettyboutique!

Tammy created a super charming card with a trio of Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On kitties and their fishy friends! Each fishbowl is a shaker element made with a Stitched Circle Frame and strip of cardstock to make the lip of the bowl. So creative! Tammy filled the fishbowls with cute critters from Fintastic Friends along with tiny seed beads. The sweet message in a speech bubble is from Say What? Pets!

Now let’s check out what our awesome Design Team has created to inspire you!

Jessica‘s amazing alcohol inked background could not be more beautiful! She used the Sunray Backdrop, die cut from gold glitter cardstock as the see-through element. I love the silhouette Palm Tree Border and glittery Scripty Hello!

The cuteness here is off the charts! Samantha die cut the Stitched Gift Card Pocket from acetate then slipped this adorable Lovable Legends card inside! To create the look of Loch Ness, she added a vellum layer cut with a Stitched Wavy Border and a piece of the Bayou Backdrop.

Franci crafted an adorable Keep on Swimming card with sweet pastel colors! She turned the little fishbowl into the shaker element using the Reveal Wheel Keep on Swimming Add-On. She filled the fishbowl with Chunky and Prisma glitter and sealed it in with acetate!

My age is really showing, but when I saw Christy‘s gorgeous card I started singing, “Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream…”! This dreamy design uses a layer of vellum for the clouds! The Sandman is our cute gnome, his net is from Butterfly Kisses and the teddy bear is from Holiday Helpers!

Samantha‘s Shadow Box Card fits the challenge theme with its 3D scene of Wild for You and Critters in the Jungle images! Scroll down to see how she stamped and colored the outside of this amazing design!

Joyce created a fun RAWRSOME Scalloped Treat Box filled with candy! Her see-through element is a little window in the side covered with acetate so you can see the treats inside! So clever!

Karin‘s gorgeous card has an acetate card base layered with a Fancy Lattice Backdrop! This sweet birthday card features the cute penguin from Toboggan Together!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 58 tomorrow!
