Wedding Congratulations Card - Sporty & Glam Theme

Made this card by request for my friend's sister's registration of marriage. The details given for the theme is something sporty as the groom-to-be is a Nike ambassador and the bride-to-be is into pretty stuffs and both are into sports as well. Initially, I have no idea how to incorporate sporty theme into a wedding congratulations card. After cracking my head, here's the finished card... tadaa... This is where I can make use of my Simon Says Stamp Kit for month of May 2015 Happily Ever After. Basically the theme is sporty with a dash of glam to give the wedding feel in the congratulations card. So, I've put a lot of glittering, embossing, shiny elements and more sparkles with Swarovski crystals. Hope you like it Pam@KissyKissy...

The border of the pearlescent white shimmer paper is from Bazzill Kraft Foil Gold from Simon Says Stamp Kit April 2015 Celebrate.

Scroll down if you would like to see more details and photos of the card.

From the draft to the finalization of the sport shoe and sporty heels (all parts were hand-cut). At last I decided to glitterfy the sport shoe with Ranger Black Sparkle Embossing Powder. As for the white parts, it's embossed with white embossing powder. As for the heel, I added shimmer with ZIG Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen and the Nike logo is embossed with white embossing powder. To add more glam and sparkles, Swarovski Flatback Crystals were added (AB crystals, Indian Pink and Rose). Both sport shoe and heel were layered-up to give the pop-out look.

I used Ranger Inkssentials Embossing Pen Clear and Embossing Powder - Ranger Superfine Gold
