2013-2014 Idea Book and Catalogue CASE

I saw a cute wedding card in the new catalogue (page 72 if you have one and want to see), and didn't really think much of it. But then I needed to make a card for some friends that got married, and gave it a shot! I decided to use some of the new In Colours along with the "Mosaic Madness" stamp set and matching punch.

First I folded and cut my Baked Brown Sugar card stock to make a base (I think the finished size of 5.5"x5.5", bigger than the one in the catalogue). I layered a piece of Whisper White on top of it. I stamped the mosaic piece with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding then punched them out. I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop them up on the base, then filled it the gaps with Baked Brown Sugar and a smaller stamp.

The sentiment was stamped and then punched out (using the technique shown in the catalogue) with the ticket builder punch. A strip of Baked Brown Sugar and the card front was basically done! I did bling it up a little with the smallest of the pearl embellishments inside the small pattern.

I kept the inside simple, adding the other half of the sentiment and two pattern strips from "Mosaic Madness. The sentiments are from "Petite Pairs", one of my favourite stamp sets, which are actually on sale for 25% off until the end of the month!
