Wedding Card

My husband and I went to a really lovely wedding do recently, it was one of those that everyone really did enjoy especially the kids.  One little boy just couldn't sit still, he was up dancing, playing with the balloons and generally having a right good time, he kept getting his mum Karen and his dad Brian up to dance, I thought he'd be fast asleep in no time but he lasted all night and still walked out to the taxi.  So thank you Sean and Linda for the invite and congratulations to both of you.  
For this card I used the Spellbinders - Labels Two die for the topper, the white card was put through my eBosser in a folder that I got when I first got the machine so I don't know the name of it, as you can see I only embossed the top and bottom section, adding a scored line above each.  The congratulations sentiment fits perfectly across the topper and it's from a die I got from the Robert Addams All Occasion Dies collection at  The sentiment and all the matts on this card were cut from some silver pearlescent card.  I cut the matt panels slightly smaller than the base card, then cut some white slightly smaller than that.  I ran the white panels through the eBosser folder then using a Quickie Glue pen added the glitter to all the raised areas.
For the inside of the card I cut out the matt and the white card, again making it a little smaller than the base card.  I cut out the circle on the white card using Spellbinders - Standard Circles Large before I ran the card through my eBosser folder.  I have some wedding accessories and the bride and groom in the middle of the card is I think some coasters, they are foiled onto some quite thin card, so the middle circle I cut out of the white card I stuck to the underside of the coaster, just so you couldn't see any of the grey through it.  I used the circle dies to cut out the frame and used the Quickie Glue pen to add the glitter, I also did the same for the embossed background.
