'Love, Honor, Cherish' Pleated Card Instructions:

1. Cover the front of a 4" x 5.5" top-folded card with a decorative black/ivory flocked patterned paper.

2. With a 2.5" x 12" strip of light aqua paper, scallop border punch the two long sides. The strip should now be approximately 2" x 12". Use the embossing stylus to score the lines to create a pleated trim.
 
3. Adhere the pleated border to the front of the card, centered vertically.

4. Print "love, honor, cherish" repeatedly on a ivory strip of cardstock, then place it horizontally over the pleated border.

5. Punch a 2" aqua circle and mount it on a extra-large scallop ivory circle. Add three punched black "scroll" shapes as shown and top it with a pearl brad in the center. Adhere it to the center of the card with a foam adhesive.

'Mr. & Mrs.' Card Instructions:

1. Adhere a 4" x 5.5" aqua patterned paper to the front of the top-folded 4" x 5.5" ivory card.

3. Punch (3) 2" ivory circles and apply them beside the "Mr. & Mrs." scalloped accent to create a horizontal row of circles.

4. On each 2" ivory circle, layer another 1" ivory circle above it for a tone-on-tone circular design.

5. Tie a pretty satin brown bow underneath the row of circles.
