Wedding/Anniversary Swap Card
This was my card for the Wedding/Anniversary swap at the July 27 Front Range Stampers meeting. I made two different versions (mainly because I didn't have enough Designer Series Paper in one design to make all of the cards the same). Here are the materials and instructions:
* Elizabeth (117120-w $9.95; set of 1)
* Artistic Etchings (118517-w $18.95; 120573-c $14.95; set of 6)
* Curly Cute (inside; 117014-W $19.95; 120510-c $14.95; set of 5)
* Sahara Sand* (8-1/2" x 5-1/2")
* Whisper White (5-1/4" x 4" inside)
* Vellum (5" x 3-3/4")
Designer Series Paper (DSP):
* Blueberry Crisp (5-1/4" x 4")
* Early Espresso* Classic Stampin' Pad
* Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker*
* 5/8” Organza Ribbon
* Linen Thread
* Stampin’ Sponge
* Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow)
* SNAIL Adhesive
* Sticky Strip
* Alternate card: Not Quite Navy Cardstock, Stampin’ Pad and Stampin’ Write Marker
1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" cardstock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.
2. Use Stampin' Sponge and ink pad to distress edges of Vellum and Whisper White card stock and DSP. Stamp greeting from Curly Cute on Whisper White card stock and adhere to inside of card.
3. Stamp Elizabeth image on Vellum card stock; stamp "AMOUR" from Artistic Etchings inside oval. On back side of card stock, use Stampin' Write Marker to color in design around outside of oval. Adhere to DSP with one strip of SNAIL Adhesive across card stock about 1" from top.
4. Lay ribbon across front of Vellum card stock covering area where SNAIL Adhesive shows through, and adhere on back of DSP. Lay another piece of ribbon vertically across first piece, and adhere on back of DSP. Use Sticky Strip to adhere DSP to front of card.
5. Use Linen thread to tie two pieces of ribbon together at intersection. Tie knot from third piece of ribbon and adhere over intersection with Tombow glue.
This can be used as either a wedding or an anniversary card. Enjoy!
