Embellished Gold & Black Wedding

Posted on

All around yesterday was a pretty good day! Work was very nice, all of the people in my department had lunch together for my birthday and they decorated my desk too. I came home and Heather stopped by for a little bit. My friends Brian and Kim had a little get together for me last night. Andrew, Danielle, Taylor, and my friend Stephanie joined us, we had some food and drinks, and Andrew brought his Cards Against Humanity game over. If you have never played this game and are not easily offended, I highly recommend it. We spent about 3 hours gasping and hysterically laughing at the extremely creative cards that they’ve come up with. I say it all the time, but I am quite lucky to have the friends that I have. Sometimes all you need is a small get together to make a birthday perfect. To make a great day even better, all of your birthday wishes brought a big smile to my face. Thank you so much for your kind words!! 🙂

*We interrupt this program for a special message.*

Hi folks, Andrew here! Unfortunately, I tried to type up a surprise message for Justin yesterday and WordPress decided not to post it. No worries, though, I’m here today to amend that situation! LOL! I just wanted to wish Justin the happiest of birthdays and say how lucky I am to have him in my life and call him a friend. When everyone else fails to be there, Justin is without a doubt by my side if I need him and I can’t thank him enough for all he does for me. I’m glad that he enjoyed his birthday, and I’m glad I was there to enjoy it with him. LOL! Alright, I’ll keep this short, but especially after WordPress screwed up yesterday (GR!), I had to make sure I hijacked his blog for a birthday wish. Ha ha! Enjoy your day, everyone! 🙂

*Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.*

The card that I have for you today is one that my friend Danielle had asked me to make for her. Her and her boyfriend are attending a friend’s wedding today. I have to tell you, it feels much easier to take make a card for someone when you know the person. That being said, here’s what I came up with…

The card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock and my background is a piece of Basic Black. I used some Sticky Strip to adhere a length of the Gold Sequin Trim around the back and then adhered the card to the base with Fast Fuse Adhesive. The two images are from the Embellished Events Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. The greeting is from the “Vintage” Follow My Heart Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Kraft Card Stock and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits; some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it to the card. Wedding cards always need a little more bling, so I adhered some Basic Jewels Rhinestones to the champagne flutes. A nice, simple, elegant wedding card with just the right amount of sparkle! I really like the way the champagne flutes look like actual glasses when they are embossed on the vellum. I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and if you haven’t tried heat embossing on vellum, I don’t know what else to do. LOL! Thanks for stopping by, and have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂
