The Metallic Cardstocks at Cut Cardstock are perfect to create elegant, beautiful wedding cards. I used four different colors on this card today: Gold, Fairway, Rose Quartz, and Virtual Pearl. With just a few colors, and some alcohol markers you can create shading on your die cuts.

To start with, I cut a piece of the Virtual Pearl the same size as my card base and glued that down onto the base. I wanted to have a couple monochrome layers popped up, so I also used the virtual pearl to cut out two ornate banners of different sizes.

I used a script background stamp to create interest on the two ornate banners using a light pink ink. I have a glass mat and I stick my red rubber background stamps directly down onto the class mat and the cling foam sticks onto the glass.

Then, I ink the background stamp and put my cardstock onto it and rub all over to get the ink to transfer.

I wanted a few of the flower pieces to be a darker pink than the cardstock I had, so I used an alcohol marker to color those in. Markers work beautifully on this cardstock!

I arranged my bouquet onto the front of the card on the larger banner and used a piece of tape to hold it into place. This is where I will put the smaller banner, so I put some liquid glue down as well to help make sure they adhere to the banner once I place it down.

Before I put the small banner onto the card, I wanted to gold emboss my sentiment on it. I used gold embossing powder to emboss my wedding sentiment.

I put foam adhesive strips just on the sides of the small banner, because the flower stems would be in the middle and will be attached with that liquid glue I had already put down.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card today! I’d love to see what you all create with the beautiful metallic cardstock over at Cut Cardstock.
