Cream and Gold

This is another wedding card I was asked to make and the remit for this was precise. It had to be cream and gold with flowers and a lacy look, and  a wediing day sentiment on the front.

The card had to be large,  but flat enough to go into an envelope ... as it was to be placed in a suitcase to be  taken abroad.
The names of the Spellbinders used will be  BOLD  so that you will be able to see what has been used to create this card.

This is what I did to make this card to an A4 size and I bought A4 envelopes to use with it.

I embossed all the base background layer with Butterfly Garden Grand Impressabilities and then layered it onto gold card.

I cut a piece of cream card and embossed it with Paisley Embossing Folder and the cut it into three pieces and added each one to some gold card. These three panel were equally spaced out on the Impressed base.

Gold and Cream organza ribbon was then wrapped around all these panels, a bow attached and a pearl added to the centre to the knot.  The lacy edge was placed under these panels and was created with the Persian Accents border.

I then added it  all to another piece of cream card that has piercing  around the edge and  layered them onto the cream base card.  The  largest Floral Oval  was cut in gold and the sentiment was stamped onto cream card, and  heat embossed in gold,  onto the second smallest  Lacy Circle

Because the flowers had to be kept reasonably flat I decided to make them with the Anenome Flower in the gold and add a pearl to the centre of each one.   I tucked the flourish and leaves from the Belle Rose underneath for a little extra decoration.

I also added the same flourish and flowers to the envelope to match the card.... and it was very well received by the lady who commisioned it.
