Congratulations - a touch of elegance

I made this card for a very formal, glamorous wedding I set up for work and was invited to attend. I went out and bought fancy paper and gemstones from Michael's...because I knew this couldn't be any so-so card.

I had seen a card (sorry, don't remember the website) and I got the inspiration from this card. I used 2 cuttlebug types on the front and scored two lines in between. Then I put gold crinkled paper behind it, then embossed with another folder, then gold paper then white cardstock.

The front I embossed with versamark and then put some gold embossing powder and heated it. Then I applied 3 gemstones on each side.

The inside I inked with gold ink (from Brillance) - the stamp was a damask from Micheal's $ bin) and then used Archival Ink (Tim Holtz) in black over it - PTI's mega mixed messages. Then I put 2 more gemstones and did a banner of the gold paper.

You can't see it, but I wrote my name on the back with a versamark pen and embossed it in gold - so she would know I made it myself.

Also - just to give you a clue of how beautiful this wedding was...I've included a picture. Our designer said she's never used so much fabric on a chuppah before!! lol

This picture doesn't even do justice (the cake is under the chuppah...this was during the reception).
And my dinner was absolutely delicious - I ate the entire thing!!
