Saturday my husband and I had a wedding to attend. The bride was in my husband's kindergarten Sunday School class. We have watched her grow from a little girl to an adult attending Georgia Tech and now working at a fabulous job in Tennessee. Because she is such a special girl I wanted to make a special card. The Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper was perfect for this card. Many would think that this paper is for Christmas or New Year's Eve celebrations, but it can also be for many other events.
The Designer Series Paper was cut 3 3/4" by 5". It was placed on a piece of a Champagne Foil sheet cut 4" by 5 1/4" and then placed on a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base. The photo does not show it, but the card looks extremely rich and expensive like one you would pay at least eight dollars for in a specialty store. The hearts were cut out of the Sweet & Sassy Framelits. The larger heart was cut using the Champagne Foil sheet. The smaller heart was using Thick Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment was heat embossed using the Born to Be Loved stamp set along with gold embossing powder and a versamark pad. You know how I love bling, so rhinestones were used. I love using a piercing tool to take rhinestones off the paper they come on and placing them on a card.
You are probably wondering what was inside the card? My writing is absolutely horrible, so I had my husband write a sweet note. His handwriting is much better. Two gift cards that the couple can use were placed in the card. She had a birdcage open to place cards which was a nice touch I thought.
Not stamping related, but I thought was fun with the meal. They had a potato bar that had various items you would put on a potato. This is seen in many places, but mashed potatoes were used and placed in a stemmed martini glass. Really fun and easy to hold with a plate walking to our table.
