Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day to you – hope you’re having a fabulous week so far! Things are pretty darn peachy here! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge has launched over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #62 – September Anything Goes! I created a sweet birthday card using some fun brads and a super fun die set that I haven’t used in a couple years. I’m trying to go through my humongous die collection and use some that haven’t been used in a while, or in some cases, have never been used at all, lol!
I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, along with a black and white gingham paper layer for the front and narrow strips cut from CutCardStock Basis Pink cardstock for the sides. I adhered a stitched oval die cut to the center of the panel cut from CutCardStock Basis Pink cardstock and stamped the sentiment vertically on the left side in black ink. I created the dress from the same black and white gingham paper and CutCardStock Basis Pink cardstock, added tiny black gemstones to the bodice, and adhered it to the center of the oval die cut I added the shoes and purse brads, a white heart brad, and several black gemstones on the sides of the oval, and adhered the panel to the card base.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of the black and white gingham paper and CutCardStock Basis Pink cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on the pink cardstock.
And one more look… totally loving the black and white with pink which is such a pretty color combo! And that dress! ;)
