I used centura pearl cardstock for the card, making a 7" x 5" base. I ran a piece of the silver toned card through my Grand Calibur in my 7 x 5 lattice embossing folder to make a base topper, layering it with some plain black.
Onto this base topper, I added a lattice diecut shape cut from the same card, but backed with a different type of pearlescent card which had a more distinctly cream tone from my stash.
I then cut out a cross using a spellbinders die, which I embellished with pearls and put that onto the top of the trellis arch.
I made two small and 1 large roses and leaves from the pearlescent card, using two different size 6 petal paper punches. They were coloured with distress inks before being made up and I also included some paper flowers from my stash with some pearls in the centre. Finally, I added a small narrow black ribbon bow.
The sentiment was a rubber stamped banner stamped with versamark and embossed with fine gold detail powder.
