I have had this strip of designer paper laying around for weeks from the Flowers Simply Set Elements Kit. These are really not my colours but I had to use it! I really liked the Mojo Monday sketch this week so decided to use that as my starting point for this card.
My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary at the end of the month and my Dad wanted a special card and here it is.
The card base is More Mustard and, in addition to the panel of designer paper, I added a second panel of textured Perfect Plum cardstock but instead of adding it straight, I put it on at an angle.
On the larger tag (which is Old Olive), I stamped the parenthesis stamp from Sweet Celebrations and added some chipboard (which is sponged with Rose Red craft ink) pieces from Lots of Letters. I then added a half circle to the top and a double loop of 5/8″ Old Olive Grosgrain and Perfect Plum Grosgrain. The brad is not SU – but it sure matches well, huh?
The other smaller panel is just a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I added a rub on to (I used the Cherished rub ons that have retired).
I punched out the flower piece from the Sticky Cuts letters and covered it with some Celery fine glitter. In the centre, I added a circle of More Mustard cardstock. I stamped it with the “forever and ever” stamp from Sweet Celebrations in Basic Black. To the centre I added a small Rose Red heart that is punched out using the three heart punch.
I really love this layout, I think I’ll be using it again!
