Diamond Wedding Card


A simple card for neighbours of my daughter who celebrate their anniversary today.  Diamond image created in MCS and matted onto white card.  Rose decoupaged and "60th" glittered.  The matching words block was also created in MCS and then printed on vellum, and embossed, again mounted on white card.  All mounted on lavender glittercard (yes it is lavender although it doesn't look like it in the photo) and added to a white hammered card.  

Unfortunately the vellum buckled slightly - I think this is because although it is only attached around the outer edge, the fact that the underneath card was mounted using pinflair glue to make sure it adhered to the glittercard and the dampness from the glue made the vellum layer buckle slightly.   Nothing I could do to rectify it has it happened as it dried!  It's not that bad, but I was just cross that it happened - a lesson learned!
