Wedding Card

Supplies:  Special Vellum Glitter Embossed by Papermania, 
WMS - Vintage Labels Two, computer generated sentiment - 
Aquarelle font, Black cardstock - Folia, X-Cut scallop border punch, 
Hero Arts gemstones, pop dots, machine stitching and craft knife.

Met a friend this morning who asked me to make a Wedding Card for her brother.  So I came home and dug out this beautiful glittered vellum that I had bought a while ago and decided to use it on this Wedding Card.  

I used the wonderful Waltzingmouse Stamp set Vintage Labels Two.  I printed the sentiment on white cardstock first and then stamped around the sentiment.  I then stamped a second time and cut this out along with the oval aperture.
 Beautiful shimmer off this in real life!  I then added little Hero Arts gemstones along the scalloped border.  I always find vellum tricky to adhere given that a lot of adhesives will show through!  I solved the problem here by machine stitching through the vellum onto the card base.
