Weddings = Anniversaries

Welcome to the Studio! For my project on the Card A Day Blog, I thought I would make a card that can really be used for almost any occasion that requires a something lovely and elegant. I chose to make this card in grey and pale yellow. I love those two colors together. I used CTMH Grey Wool for my card base as well as my border punched piece at the top, which I inked in CTMH Grey Wool. The yellow paper is from Michael's Recollections line. It has kind of a linen-like texture. The yellow grosgrain is also from Michael's. I used a Hero Arts stamp with Versamark and silver embossing powder. The silver gives it a classy kind of feel. The two gems at the bottom are the Swarovski flatback crystals. I also used a Stampin Up embossing folder, Fifth Avenue Florals, I believe is the name of it.

Now, here's the particulars...
For the cardbase, I cut my paper to 4.25 x 11 and made it so the fold was on the top as opposed to the side. My white mat is sized 4 x 5 and the yellow embossed paper is 3.75 x 4.75. For the grey piece on top of the card, I just border punched it and "eyeballed" it to get the size I wanted. {Remember to stamp and emboss your sentiment BEFORE you glue the strip to the card front. It's always good if you learn from my mistakes;)} Also, I attached the ribbon/blow on the back of the strip before I adhered it to the card front.
I have a picture below of a birthday card I made for a friend using the exact same colors, etc. You can see the embossed pattern better in this photo. This is really a great, all-purpose card.

I hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time, Scrap Sassy!
