Modern Wedding Card {Poppy & Gray}

I made this for a friend who was attending a wedding last week. The card is a 6″ square, made from a 12″x6″ sheet of textured basic gray card stock, folded in half.

Across the front, I layered 2 strips of poppy parade DSP from the In Color Prints Pack (Hostess Level 1) on Whisper White and overlapped them.

The stamped image is from a retired set called Year After Year. I stamped it on Whisper White card stock using Basic Gray ink and shaded it just a bit with gray Copic Markers. Then, I used the 2 Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to add sparkle to the cake.

I layered that onto squares of Poppy Parade and Basic Gray card stock, paper piercing the corners.

The glitter letters & numbers are Making Memories glitter alphabet stickers.

Across the front and back, I tied White 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon into a bow to close the card.

Inside, I forgot to take a picture, but I used a sheet of Poppy Parade DSP (same as on the front) layered with Whisper White and stamped a sentiment.

Dahlia Card {Copic Coloring}

I was in the mood to play with my Copic Markers so I stamped this dahlia from Fall Flair (retired Hostess set) multiple times onto Whisper White card stock. After coloring the flowers with my Copics, I sponged Baja Breeze ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. Next, I layered the white onto a 4 1/4″ square of Apricot Appeal card stock.

The base of the card is Baja Breeze, with a strip of Poppy Parade DSP from the Prints Pack (hostess level 1) across the front. I like this striped paper, and in this instance, it reminds me of the wide striped grosgrain ribbon in the new catalog.

For the sentiment, I stamped the “so glad we’re friends” stamp from Best Yet (retired Hostess set) onto whisper white and punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. The edges were also sponged with Baja Breeze ink and a sponge dauber, then adhered to the card with stampin dimensionals.

Vintage Recipe Card Style Birthday Card

Here is another sample of the In Color Prints Pack (Level 1 Hostess Choice) in Peach Parfait. The large polka dot pattern caught my eye right away, and on the back was this lined pattern, which reminds me of a recipe card. Since I had pie on the mind after ordering Every Little Bit, this is the card I came up with.

The base is Early Espresso. I sponged the DSP with Creamy Caramel ink slightly, just to tone down the bright white. I cut a strip of the large polka dot DSP and layered Crumb Cake underneath. I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the Crumb Cake, and the paper piercer to make holes in each scallop.

I added some vintage crochet ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, around the front of the card to give it a “from grandma’s kitchen” feeling.

The stamped image is from Every Little Thing, and the sentiment is from Birthday Bakery. I stamped the pie three times onto Whisper White and once on white scrap. Then, I distressed the Whisper White card stock by using the Cutter Kit Distressing Tool, rubbed Peach Parfait Marker along the edges, and sponged lightly with Creamy Caramel ink to tone it down. Along the top, I used the Spiral Punch.

After coloring in the pie I stamped on scrap with Copics and Stampin Up Markers, I trimmed it out and attached it to the card with a stampin dimensional.

I added some holes on either side of the sentiment with the paper piercer and used a brown Basic Brad to accent. Then, that piece was attached to the base with stampin dimensionals.

In the bottom right corner, I stamped “happy birthday” from Eat Cake (retired) in chocolate chip ink to finish off the card.
