Wedding Card

Wedding card for my brother-in-law.  I made the wedding invitations for him (will be shown in another post) and decided to make a card for him out of the same aqua paper.  To dress it up a bit, I put vellum over the paper and wow, in person it looks really pretty, just could not get the camera shot to do it justice.  I made two layers of the vellum (which has a design already in it) and then stamped the birds in the heart.  Punched tiny flowers out of the aqua paper and attached them over the stamped ones.
Here is a side view that shows off the vellum paper a little more.  The ribbon is cream with gold in it and is the ribbon that I used on the invitations.  Really like how this card turned out - looks very elegant!

I have had the vellum for a long, long time and just never used it! With me on the 'paper diet' you would be surprised what you can find in your stash! LOL!
