PTI 8th Anniversary: Together Forever

I'm back with a new card for the Papertrey Ink eighth anniversary celebration.  Today's challenge is to use only metallics and neutrals.  This had me stumped a bit at first because I don't have any metallic paper.  Glitter to the rescue!

I laid down strips of 1/2 inch Scor-Tape in a diagonal pattern on white cardstock and poured White Gold glitter over top.  It's such a luxurious color!   Then I adhered the panel to a black card base so the sparkle would really pop.

I pulled out an untouched stamp set called Wonderful Words: Together and stamped a small sentiment on a white Building Blocks die cut.  I glittered up a tiny heart die cut from Heart Prints using Yellow Barite.  It pulls out the bits of gold in the stripes.  I also wanted the heart to really stand out from the background.  I cut the word "together" out of black cardstock, doubling it for a little dimension.  Then I simply glued it all in place.

I really love how elegant this is, especially in person.  I hope my pictures capture the glorious sparkle.  It's a perfect wedding card, or perhaps an alternative to all the usual red and pink for Valentine's Day.  You can see other challenge cards here.
