I was looking at this inspiration photo
on the Avery Elle challenge blog which says wedding reception to me, and I was reminded of attending a wedding 40 years ago because the friends who got married are about to celebrate their Ruby Wedding Anniversary. We will be joining in their celebrations in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make a special card for them, so I decided to CASE one of my own cards from 2011
This time I used Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel colours which fitted the Ruby Wedding theme perfectly. I used PTI Limitless Layers Heart dies to put a heart inside the card and embossed the sentiment in white using Avery Elle Count On It stamps
I then die cut another heart and stamped it with stamps from PTI With all my Heart, embossing the background stamp with clear embossing powder to give some shine
When the card is closed, the two hearts rest together to give a lovely layered effect. I put an eyelet into the smaller heart and attached some thread so I could dangle it from the sop of the aperture and used a ribbon punch to cut slots so I could tie some ribbon and hide the hole at the top.
A sentiment finished it off.
I am also going to enter this into the current Lexi's Creations challenge to use die cuts and punches, and the Simon Says Stamps challenge which is to use rain or flowers on a project.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
