It’s that time of year when I tend to have more weddings and anniversaries to celebrate. So, I decided to build up my stash of these types of cards. Nothing says wedding or anniversary like beautiful metallic papers. Something about the extra shimmer and shine makes a clean and simple layout extra special. That was my focus for the bases and backgrounds to use the different metallic papers that CutCardStock has to offer.
On to the cards. . . for two of the cards, I used a die-cut from Birch Press Designs to create the trellis type background. I adhered the background to the card base with Tombow Liquid Glue. I like using liquid glue for die-cuts like this because it gives you a chance to move the pieces around until they are lined up perfectly. I have used spray adhesive but found it more difficult to get the right alignment.
To create the focal image, I used Concord & 9th’s Turnabout Wreath and stamped the images on Classic Pearl Linen. The images were stamped with Versamark ink so I could add different metallic embossing powders for additional shimmer. After stamping and embossing, I die-cut the wreath into circles.
For the die-cut sentiments, I used the POW Glitter paper in Gold on one card. For the other, I used Stardream Metallic in Silver.
For the anniversary card, I used an additional heart die from Cheapo Dies. I popped up the outside of the heart with adhesive backed foam.
