Forever Blossoms Wedding Card Money Holder

With wedding season coming up and since a few weddings have been postponed from last year, I decided to have a few cards on hand. 

Stampin Up Forever Blossoms Wedding Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

My cards are a mini slimline, which happens to be my favorite size card at the moment.  These cards are also money wallets which made more sense as we usually give a check as a wedding gift as opposed to a gift card.  Here’s the details…

  • The thick Basic White card base measures 6″ x 9″, scored at 3 1/2″ and 7″.

  • The next layer is a pattern from the Love You Always Specialty DSP cut at 6″ x 1″ and glued to the left side of the card base as shown above.

  • On a 2 3/4″ x 6″ piece of Basic White card stock, I stamped the floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and heat embossed it with Copper embossing powder.
  • This panel is glued to the right side of the card overlapping the DSP.
  • A 1/8″ strip of Copper Foil is glued over the seam of the white panel.
  • The sentiment, also from Forever Blossoms stamp set, is heat embossed in (retired) copper embossing powder.
  • The sentiment is punched using the Double Oval punch.  I also layered  another Copper Foil oval under the sentiment oval. These are popped up with Stampin’ dimensionals.

  • To create the “wallet”, add Tear & Tape to the sides of the 2 1/2″ panel and adhered it to the inside panel of the card.
  • The sentiment is stamped in black ink.
  • A thin strip of DSP and a thinner strip of foil creates a pretty border.

  • The envelope is made from 32lb white card stock that I found on Amazon.  It has a very smooth texture and is slightly thicker than regular copy paper but not as thick as card stock.  This makes it perfect for an envelope.  You can see the envelope template HERE.

As usual, after I create a card, I think that maybe it would look good or better in a different color and/or pattern.  So here’s another version using a different pattern from the same DSP collection and Sahara Sand foil.  These are in the Jan – June mini catalog.

I think this is such a pretty and very practical card that could also be used to give money or a check for a bridal shower.  The DSP and foil will be available until June 30th and the Forever Blossoms stamp set is carrying over in the new Annual Catalog.


Here’s a look at what products are retiring along with some really deep discounts.  However, once a product is sold out, it’s gone for good!
