Bridal March

100_5510


This is an image from Penny Black's woodblock stamp "Bridal March."  I've seen a lot of gold on cards lately and wanted to give gold embossing a try once again!! 

I stamped the image on vellum and embossed with gold.  The vellum layer was placed over a vibrant patterned paper in gold hues.  I used spray adhesive to attach the vellum and loved how it dealt with any warping of the vellum!

I used glossy gold paper to provide a border and added some salmon colored pearls for a bit of color.  I'm wondering if this card could be used for a golden wedding anniversary, too..... but alas!  No groom!  Kind of like the first wedding day, right?

I appreciate your visit!!  And I love comments!

Very pretty...I love the softness of the background because of the vellum. I think it would make a perfect anniversary card!
