On this Day – a wedding card

Hi! Thanks for visiting my Card a Day blog post! I have the last scheduled card for the Wedding theme, and have made a basic card with lots of possibilities to make it for all sorts of occasions!
First of all, the card base is 5”x7”. I cut a 1/4 fold card front and embossed it with Crafts Too “Invitation” embossing folder.  I then cut out a piece of light purple gift wrap tissue paper, just slightly larger than the embossed card front. I used an art deco edged craft scissor that I got from the dollar store!
I really had fun making the central embellishment.  I made the flash “on this day” base with Craft Artist. I had fun using the stencil’s to air brush color and depth. Here is what my Craft Artist screen looked like:
on this day
I printed and cut out the shape, and glued it onto cardstock that I had previously glued regular kitchen foil on top of. All I had to do is cut it out so the foil framed the embellishment!
Ribbon under the embellishment and around the embossed card front. Inside the card I plan to make a personalized note for the couple I give it to.
I was thinking that you could have all sorts of fun, using different shapes for your embellishment, making the embellishment a frame for a picture of the happy couple or whatever the celebration was for! More depth could be added by using ModPodge or similar gloss finish, just on the colored portion of the embellishment too --- really a lot of possibilities! I have a post on how I've altered this card too!
