Jack & Jill wedding shower this weekend

My co-worker is having his wedding shower this weekend and I made them a card and earrings for his lovely wife to be :)

The card base is copper paper and the front has an SVG file of a dancing bride and groom that I cut using my Cricut and used pop dots to make it stand out.
The inside is layered paper.
The black is borderpunched and the top corners are punched and embossed.
The copper paper was run through a cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.  Added a black ribbon.
The red paper was edged with copper ink and then I stamped part of the Love Chapter from Corinthians (this was done with a SU stamp, not sure of the series...).  I used clear embossing powder and my heat gun to make the chapter stand out.  I then hand wrote a greeting before i used pop dots to attach the red paper to the copper.
VOILA!  (I stamped the front of the envelope using the same rubber stamp)

The earrings were made using gold plated wire and green pearls.  I made the black paper stand by cutting a strip of paper and scoring it in all the right places :)
