My sister just came back from Paris France for a wedding and this is the card I made for her to give. I must say I struggled so much with a card that after a week of failed attempts I finally just went with traditional and made this one, lol!
I did a criss cross card in a metallic bronze I got for cheap, cheap because it wasn't selling!
I couldn't believe it, the colour is gorgeous and its so easy to work with. (I think I'm going to go and grab some more!) Add the vanilla to it and this photo doesn't do it justice. I embossed the outside of the card but just stamped the back of the card on the inside so my sister could write whatever she wanted to.
We had a friend translate wedding wishes into French because Google translate doesn't really work for this!
I added some vellum butterflies with pearls and voila! I was very thankful when it was finally done.
