We had such a lovely weekend here. Bright and sunny and almost nice enough to ignore all the snow we still have on the ground. *smiles*
Today I have a monochromatic wedding/anniversary card to share with you.
I made this one back at the February retreat as well and am happy to say that when my pal Alvina used the design for a US! Regionals card swap, she won a prize and some recognition for it. You go Alvina!
With the exception of the ribbon at the top, this card is made entirely with Neenah Baronial Ivory cardstock. It's done with a bit of layering, dry embossing and punching but really it's a super quick card to put together.
I started with a half sheet of the ivory cut 4.25x11 inches, scored and folded at 5.5 inches. The panel with the swirls is cut 4.25x3.5 and is dry embossed with ProvoCraft's Divine Swirls folder. Next I punched a 1x4.25 inch strip of ivory using Martha Stewart's Arch Lattice edge punch and adhered that under one long edge of the previously embossed panel. That piece was then adhered to the card and the ribbon was tied around the top to cover the top edge of the embossed panel. The hearts were diecut with Spellbinders hearts and scallop hearts dies and then dry embossed using ProvoCraft's dotted swiss and French script embossing folders. I used foam dimensionals in two thicknesses to adhere them to the card and then stamped my sentiment in Sahara Sand just below them. Finally, I added a few Kaiser half pearls along the bottom edge of the embossed/punched panel for a little extra elegance.
Thanks for stopping by!
