Warmest Wishes

This is a little 4"x4" wedding card. I used white cardstock for the base, then cut some navy blue polka dotted paper at 3 3/4"x3 3/4." I wrapped the navy paper with some pink orgnady ribbon and adhered it to the card base. I stamped my image in night sky ink by Tsukineko onto white cardstock. I then used the label Nestabilities to cut out the image. I also used the next largest label to cut out some navy blue cardstock. I layerd them together and used pop-dots to adhere the labels to the card base. I coverd the navy blue label in midnight blue Stickles for some shimmer and sparkle. I added three buttons from my stash to the right hand corner. I also tied some twine into a bow and adhered it to the label. The sentiment is stamped in pink petunia ink by Tsukineko onto white cardstock and trimmed down. I then cut some navy blue cardstock 1/8" larger and layred them together and adhered it to the labels. For the inside of the card I cut some navy blue cardstock 1/8" smaller, then some white cardstock 1/4" smaller than the blue. I stamped my sentiment in the same pink ink as the outside sentiment.

I made this for the following three challenges:

  • 365 Cards: "Card Recipe" - 4"x4" card, twine, 3 buttons, stamped image, patterned paper, sentiment

  • ABC Challenge: S is for Sparkle

  • Color Throwdown: navy blue, white, one other color (I chose a splash of pink
