A Wedding Card

This is a wedding card I made for a couple getting married in late April. I took my color cues and design elements (the monogram initials in a heart) from the couple's invitation (which they had designed themselves) and what knowledge I had about the color scheme of the wedding.

I really wanted this to be special and I hope the couple likes it. The card is 5x7 made out of white linen cardstock, gold irredescent vellum and black linen cardstock. The linked hearts are out of my Celebration images See D's set. The Monogram are Stampendous exclusive to Archivers. These were stamped in Dew Drops Galaxy Gold (really shimmery).

I used a Hero Arts stamp with Versamark and then O'So sticky embossing powder to make the beaded heart over the monogram. I then used a cut to size a strip of OSo sticky tape to bead the line of hearts at the bottom of the card.

I then made an envelope out of hammered cardstock by using a technique of using measurements of 1/8 inch larger than the card in all directions and then using a corner rounder on the exposed corners. I found the how-to somewhere on SCS - sorry having a dipsy brain moment. So if it is your technique please let me know. Then I lined the envelope with matching vellum to finish it off.

PS - if you look carefully at the close up you can just about see the hearts on through the gold vellum.
