Freestyle Fridays - Fall Wedding

The recruiter that got my foot through the door for the best job I've ever had got married in Mexico this past Wednesday.  Congratulations Mindy and Trevor!  Can't wait to see you when you get back all glowing and sun kissed.

With a little investigating I found out that her bridal color was orange.  That's all I got.  Orange...How do you come up with something without making it look like Halloween?  A little challenging to say the least. I set about pulling cardstock with different tones of oranges and decided that Peach Parfait with Brushed Gold with would make a perfect match.  And ta-da, the end result.

The card base is Brushed Gold.  On a layer of Peach Parfait I embossed in gold the bride from For The Bride.  I ran the Swirly Decorative Strip Die through the Big Shot with Brushed Gold twice.  Using the Two Way Glue Stick I adhered it to the Peach Parfait then trimmed it with the Table Top Cutter to give it a clean edge.  The sentiment is also embossed in Gold. A little bling was added using the Rhinestone Jewels.

For the inside:

I added the second strip of the Swirly die in the same manner with the Two Way Glue Stick and trimming afterwards.

And, I am happy to tell you that Mindy said I matched the color perfectly!  Gotta like that!!!!

It's always such a great feeling to find out that your colors turned out to be perfect! I, too, would have had a hard time working with orange for a wedding card, but you did a fabulous job!

Hi Julie! What a beautiful card you have created for your friend. It is just exquisite. I have often wondered how that die cut strip would look and how difficult it would be to cut it on a heavier card stock and now you have answered my question. It looks so lovely.... you just did a fabulous job, again. Keep up the great work.
