It’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy! I have to admit that the full title of the challenge, “It’s a Great Day for a White Wedding”, has had me hearing Billy Idol in my head for the last several days. (I know the actual lyrics say “nice day”, but close enough.) Although the challenge title references “wedding”, we’re also accepting anniversary cards as part of the challenge. Just make sure that your celebratory card is flat enough to fit in an envelope so that it could be mailed at the standard first-class postage rate.
I suppose my card really could go either way – wedding or anniversary. I haven’t put any sort of sentiment inside of it yet. It was really quick and easy to make. I started by coloring a scrap of white cardstock with a metallic pink Gelato and blending the color with a paintbrush dipped in a mix of water and bright pink reinker. When it was dry, I die cut a heart from it. I embossed a panel of white cardstock, stamped my “congratulations” sentiment on a scrap of pink cardstock, and attached the pink to the bottom of the embossed white panel. I attached the panel to a white card base, using scrap cardstock shims behind the panel for a little bit of dimension, and adhered the die cut heart in place. The layout comes from the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. I’m also entering this card into this week’s challenge at The Paper Players. It’s their 300th challenge – WOW! Congrats to them for such a successful challenge blog!
The Cards in Envy team has come up with some other great ideas, so be sure to check them out! We hope you’ll share your own wedding or anniversary card with us before the challenge closes. You have until 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, July 3, 2016 to link your card at the challenge post. Thanks for stopping by today!
