Wedding Congrats

A friend asked if I would make a wedding card for her and this is the one I came up with.  This card measures 5" x 7-1/2".  I usually make wedding cards a litle bigger and with the Envelope Punch Board, it's easy to make an envelope to fit.

CARD BASE:  Shimmery White card stock cut 7-1/2" x 10" scored and folded at 5" on the 10" side.  The shimmer in this card stock makes it perfect for wedding cards.

TOP LAYER:  Cut the layer of Shimmery White card stock with the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  Heat embossed the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set with Versa Mark and Silver Embossing Powder.  Added a piece of Organza Ribbon above the sentiment.  Made a small bow with the same ribbon, tied it in the center with Silver Metallic Thread and attached it to the ribbon with Glue Dots.  This layer was added to a piece of Silver Foil Sheet.  It was then attached to the card front with Dimensionals (lots of dimensionals to be sure it held).

FINISHING TOUCHES:  I added a retired Something Borrowed embellishment to the center of the ribbon,  Some Rhinestones were added to the die cut pieces.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside but I used the sentiments from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (Marriage is a Journey - good thing you get to bring your best friend along).  I also heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder.

Unfortunately, the photo doesn't do the card justice.  The bling and shimmer just don't show up very well in photos.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you had a great weekend and managed to stay cool.  It has been pretty hot in the Northeast this summer.

Love this card and I cased it. Just a heads up that, at least in Canada, it is really difficult to find envelopes for a 5 x 7.5" card - impossible so far. The upside is, I learned to make my own envelopes, but even that was hard because I needed paper that was 12.5, and couldn't get it. I would suggest making it max. 5 x 7 so that you can use standard envelopes.
