Going “Uptown” with Heart 2 Heart!

Hello Friends!

This week at Heart 2 Heart we are focusing on UPTOWN–the new paper fundamentals from Close To My Heart, the “uptown” area of a city or even a song with an “uptown” theme.  I chose to use the Uptown Paper Fundamentals to create a classy wedding card embellished with lots of gold!

It’s really hard to photograph shiny metallic papers, so I took a couple of photos from different angles so you could get a better idea of how it really looks.  However, none of them are very good–sorry!  I layered the gold dot velum paper over the white areas between the gold metallic stripes.  I also used the black and gold ribbon from the Uptown Ribbon Pack to add another layer over the gold stripes.

The stamped sentiments on the front and inside of the card came from the stamp set Wedding Wishes and the wreath image is from a new stamp set called Wreath.  I heat embossed the stamped images with gold embossing powder.
