Wedding Congratulations

Heather here to share my newest creation.  It has been a whirlwind of activity around my house lately as my eldest son got married and I of course needed a card to reflect the happy couple so I reached for the prettiest stamp I have ever seen.

I used the Wedding Couple Silhouette (74825-M) that I stamped on a layer of medium grey card stock to match the A2 sized top folding card base with black onyx versafine ink, I then sprinkled Nuvo Glitter Embossing Powder in Glitter Noir over the stamped image and heat set. I cut this layer out with a scalloped stitched die from my crafty stash and then cut the second layer out of vellum with the next size up scalloped stitched die.  I used a dark grey card stock for the third layer of the card and then I used fun foam between all layers prior to adhering to the card base. I also added some silver metallic thread under the top layer for some added color, as I kept the card pretty monochromatic. 

I stamped the "Congratulations" using the Elegant Sayings (10517-X) stamp set in black onyx versafine ink and heat set with clear embossing powder on vellum to match the second layer of the card.  I love this font and felt it would be perfect layered over the stamped couple silhouette. I then ran the vellum through my sticker maker and layered it over the couple.  I like how it is still see through yet completely stuck down and there is no visible glue.  

I then added some Clear Crystals to the wedding bouquet and sealed with some glossy accents for added dimension and sparkle.

This card came together beautifully and I am sure the happy newlyweds will love it.
