The Card Concept #126 Jan. 2020 - Wedding Card

Welcome to my first design team post for The Card Concept for 2020! It's so fun to be on a DT and come up with a card for each challenge. This picture was so inspiring I could have made many cards, but I wanted to keep with a wedding theme. I kept with a "Classy & Elegant" style:

  • polished
  • shiny finish
  • sparkling embellishments
  • rich color scheme
  • sophisticated sentiments
  • regal
  • sweeping
  • dramatic
  • monochromatic
  • layered textures
  • awe
  • impress

Here is the inspiration picture:
Most of the inspiration came from the clocks, the glitz, the silver noisemaker in the back and lastly, the pearls.

I started with Tsukineko Delicata 4 pack of colors that I had in my stash. I used the gold and silver colors with the's Foam Blending Tool with Tim Holtz' Stamper Anonymous Layering Stencil, Clockworks, on Neenah Classic Crest White card stock. I cut this piece with the largest Jillian Vance's Basic Rectangle Backdrop die. It leaves a beautiful clean indent about 1/4" in from all the edges. I love the look of it.
The wine glasses (MFT's Wine Service Die-namics) and chain (free gift from Jillian Vance, but linked similar item below) were cut from silver metallic card stock. They were glued flat with liquid adhesive and a few pearls were added for bubbles.

The outside sentiment is from Brutus Monroe's Sharon's Script.  This set has many elegant sentiments for various occasions. 
The inside sentiment is from Taylored Expression's, The Inside Scoop - Wedding. Perfect sentiments for the inside of a wedding card.
I cut and scored a piece of WPlus9, Dove Grey card stock into a side fold A2 card. I just love this card stock! Not only the color, but the weight is just perfect to score without cracking, yet strong enough to be a base. Definitely have to keep this in my stash.

  3. This is such a cool card...the stencilled background is amazing, something I am not very good at, I'm afraid! The diecut chain really piqued my interest! What a great die and how lucky you were to receive it! A fabulous card to start off the new year!
