Folded Doily Wedding Card
A friend asked me for an “engagement card tutorial” and showed me two samples she found online and liked. This is my CASE of the first design she chose. (The online sample is below.) My finished card is 5×7.
For the skirt, I used a half of an 8 inch doily. You can see how I folded it HERE.
I created cut files for the tuxedo parts. (The bowtie and bodice of the dress are from the Silhouette file #101542 called “Bride and Groom Card” by Nilmara Quintela.) I then created “tracers” so she could cut the pieces on her own without an electronic die cutting machine.
I embossed the bodice with the Cuttlebug D’vine Swirls embossing folder and added ribbon and a flower to the gown and black sequins (no holes) to the tuxedo. (She can “go to town” adding embelishments to hers- lol!)
The background paper is American Crafts #368312. The greeting, from the “Banners” set from Joy! Crafts, was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut with a die from the “Sentiment Strips Die” set from Creek Bank Creations.
Thanks for checking out my card project!

WOW! This is awesome. Love how you created the wedding dress. I’m going to be needing a wedding card in a few months – thanks for the inspiration.
Such a beautiful wedding card! Both the dress and tux look spectacular.
Oh the details you were able to create. WOW!
Love this and your creativity. Your friend will have a blast creating her card from your design. Thanks for sharing your dress/tree instructions.
Double WOW!! Such a perfect, beautiful wedding card. The doily dress is amazing.
What a beauty you created. Clever to use a doily for the skirt. Must try that myself sometime. The detail on this card makes it stunning. She will have fun adding her own embellishments to her own.
