Today's project is a CASE from page 72 of the new Stampin' Up! Catalog...I needed a wedding card and just fell in love with the simple elegance of this card! Love, love, love the combination of Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate!
The coordinating stamps in the new Mosaic Madness stamp set give you endless creative possibilities and the matching Mosaic Punch just makes putting this card together a snap! I did make an adjustment to the original card by layering the Very Vanilla top layer onto a layer of Smoky Slate and Crushed Curry. I thought the added layers of color gave the card a bit of 'POP'!
I don't currently own the Ticket Duo Builder Punch (gasp!) so I improvised! I have LOTS of thin strips of Whisper White cardstock in my scrap pile so I chose one and stamped this lovely image from the Petite Pairs stamp set. I snipped the strip down to what I thought looked like the appropirate length and then snipped again on the top and bottom until it looked right. Next I took my circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and inserted the ends of my paper in and punched half circles on all four corners and voila! an itty bitty ticket shape! I then used my Stampin' Trimmer to trim down a scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock to layer behind the sentiment and snipped the ends into a banner. A few Stampin' Dimensionals for added depth and four itty bitty Pearl Basic Jewels for the jewelry.
I forgot to snap a picture of the inside of the card but I added the sentiment "Wishing You a Lifetime of Happiness" from the One in a Million stamp set.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend...I plan to spend some time in my stamp room playing with my new goodies, setting up my fall class schedule, and preparing to share some of my organizational tips in upcoming posts.
