Wedding Wishes

Avery Elle posted a new challenge in their challenge blog:

I decided to make a wedding card using Avery Elle's newly released So Happy stamp set.

I started by grabbing a piece of vellum and stamping the sentiment in Versamark ink. I then embossed it in gold and set it aside to work on the rest of the card.

I cut a piece of Avery Elle birch woodgrain cardstock to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2, and then diecut a window in the middle. I cut a piece of dark blue cardstock to measure slightly larger than the window. I created a diamond pattern by scoring the cardstock with my scoreboard.

After adhering the blue panel to the card base with tape adhesive,  I added white pearls to each of the diamond corners.

I wrapped the vellum with the sentiment around the woodgrain panel and adhered it to the card with foam squares.

As a last touch, I added some golden sequins.
