The other weekend I went to a wedding for good friends of ours. It was a small and simple ceremony but was very them. The bride was co ordinating everything in red so I decided when making them a card I would ensure it was in red. I did a little casing (but changed it up a little to suit myself) from the fab Rachel Capps who got the original card from Dawn. Thanks ladies for the ideas! Around the same time I opened my big mouth and was talked into doing a demo of the Faux metal technique at our team stamping day. I decided to incorporate the faux metal technique into the card and demo the technique on the card at the stamping day. And here's what I came up with
Simple but very elegant and could also be given as a valentines card or a simple I love you card. The bride of the wedding absolutly loved the card! Here's a close up of the faux metal medallion I made. I attached it with some silver rings and long nose pliars from my jewellry making days.
Stamp Set: Polka Dot Punches (SAB), In the Spotlight
Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Real Red, VersaMark
Accessories: White Taffeta Ribbon, Red Gingham Ribbon, Dimensionals, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Silver rings, Pliars
