Commissioned ruby wedding card

I was asked to make a ruby wedding card. For the background I ran some DCWV white core card through the eBosser using a Sheena Douglass embossing folder and then sanded it to reveal the white. The strip of Anniversary sentiment vellum is an offcut from long ago, put over an offcut of white paper with hearts. The  glittered heart was recycled from a card received. Flowers were from Hobbycraft. The sentiment was generated on computer and printed on to another snippet of the paper with hearts.

I secured the vellum beneath the glittered heart, but so that I didn't have to stick the rest down I stuck the ends into the inside of the card, covering these up with another piece of DCWV card and then creating the panel ready for writing a message. The Inca sentiment stamp was inked with Adirondack raisin.
