Wedding Card


This is my second post for today. I was about to start dinner and suddenly had an inspiration so they are still waiting from to cook dinner and I am uploading this cause I would like to make the Simon Says Monday challenge and it closes in a couple of hours.


I first clear stamped then gold embossed this wondrous background stamp from MFT on black card stock. Its stunning on black in gold. You really need to make sure you use your  little pillow or tool first to make sure there are no fingerprints or grey residue on your cardstock so you get a nice clear gold emboss. It really makes a difference and looks so much better without stray bits of gold on it.


Then the big decision was how to put the sentiment on. I pondered die cuts, gold, black, white, then vellum but it just didnt show up enough. Then I thought of the Papertrey gold embossed card fronts I had bought previously. This rectangle with the lovely gold embossed border was in the middle of a gold spotted card front so I cut it out with a scalpel and can still use the other part of the front with something covering the cut out area.



I glued the panel down after stamping the sentiment in black.  I have added random (decisions  decisions, my goodness it seems harder with sequins than gems!!) gold sequins. They looks different colours in different shots and I cant think of the word for them....other than holographic maybe. Anyway they were $1 ones from the junk shop but look fantastic here. Its finished and I am happy as a pig in mud.
