The CASual Fridays Challenge to create a
came just in time for me as a wedding card was needed -
I hope I achieved a clean, uncluttered look so the rich gold details can shine!
I started with a thickly woven cream cardstock for the card base. I have no idea where I picked up this card stock but I've saved it for wedding cards because of the sumptious texture!
The heart is cut using the largest Spellbinders Nestabilities Hearts Die, which was then dry embossed. I rubbed it with gold embossing ink before heat embossing the whole
thing for a rich gold finish.
The flower was created with Papertrey Ink's Bloom Builder #3 dies.
I had two vintage buttons which I bought in a jar full at St. George's Market in Belfast City Centre - they have a real antique looking finish, the smaller one was used for the centre of the flower and the larger matching one used to top off the triple wrapped gold cord.
Here's a couple of photo's of the market which has a fab variety of food, crafts, and other items, it's well worth a visit if you're ever in the Belfast area!
