A Challenge Card

November 16, 2013

026I was inspired to try the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary this week after seeing this card by Nicole Tugrul.  I kept it very simple and created this card which could be used for a wedding, engagement or anniversary.

I attached two pieces of the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped congratulations from the Sweet Essentials stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Real Red ink.  I cut a “v” in one end and attached the greeting to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the two images from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Real Red ink and cut them out using the matching Hearts a Flutter Framelits.  I attached the small heart to the centre of the large heart using dimensionals and then the large heart to the card front again using dimensionals, so that I could attach it partially over the greeting banner.Class-19.11.13

I kept the inside decoration simple as well by adding a narrow strip of Modern Medley Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  Lastly I added another small heart stamped in Real Red over the designer series paper, using Glue Dots.

I think this is a sweet card and really was very simple to make, however, I think by using this very gorgeous designer series paper it is quite striking.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

    Ever so pretty card, and I always love black and white with a pop of color! Just the fact you take the time to decorate the inside impresses me! I love when I receive a card with the inside stamped too – I never think to do it to my own cards. Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

    I have always liked black and vanilla (or white) with a splash of color. It’s always so classy! You can’t go wrong! Great card for any occasion…just change the greeting. Nice job! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge this week!
