Cream and gold wedding card

This is a commissioned card for a friend to give. It needed to be cream white gold and I chose the DL landscape as this was the style of the invitation she had received.

The shaped card and scalloped oval were from a set bought a while ago from QVC. I embossed the oval with a Hallmark embossing folder and swiped it with Brilliance galaxy gold ink pad. The background PM swirls stamps were stamped with the same ink pad and heat embossed with detail gold powder. The names and date were generated on my dymo letratag using a clear tape which was then mounted on to a matt gold foiled card.

The inner flap was covered with a gold foiled sentiment vellum (I ran through my xyron so that there is no adhesive showing through, with the addition of some gold organza ribbon. I then added quite a few gems on to the embossed die cut hearts and parts of the swirls.

(Please excuse the paper clip - I used it to make sure the card was fully closed for the photo.)

I used Anna Griffin sentiment stamps for the inside, using galaxy gold ink again and embossing with detail gold.
