Paper Craft Anniversary

I needed an anniversary card for my husband's parents so I used the Paper Craft Crew Challenge (PCC256) for this week for some inspiration.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge 256. Come play along! #papercraftcrew #stampinup #sunnygirlscraps #papercrafting #papercrafts #stamping #stamps #papercraft #rubberstamp #rubberstamps #artsandcrafts #hobby #crafts #craftastherapy #createeveryday #happymail #snailmail #creativelifehappylife #handmadeisbetter #craftsposure #creativemess #christiancreative #becreative #instagood #crafters #diy #smallbusiness #cardmaking #cardmaker #washitape

I pretty much stayed close to the sketch, with a few substitutions.  All supplies I used came from the Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  

The color combination is Peakaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Gold and Whisper White.

Instead of the splatter I decided to try to use a watercolor technique to add the color to the card.  For this technique I pressed the Peakaboo Peach stamp pad onto ziploc bag, spritzed it with water and then dabbed the edge of a piece of whisper white cardstock into the ink.  I only made a small spot so that the ink didn't cover too much of the paper.  I love the various watercolor techniques out there so I continue to practice and try new ways to get the watercolor effect.

I used one of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers for the background and Soft Sky 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon which I folded to create a ruffled effect.

The greeting is from the Beautiful Bouqet photopolymer stamp set inked with Basic Black and stamped onto WHisper White cardstock.  I punched it with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  I punched another 1-3/4" circle from gold foil cardstock and glued it behind the greeting.

The heart was die cut from Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack using the heart from the Wood Crate framelit die.

And finally, I added a few Metallic Enamel Shapes gold dots.

The card came together pretty nicely and it is already in the mail (will be late since their anniversary is tomorrow).

Hope you enjoyed the card!
