Simply Stampin' Challenge Sketch Week - For the Newlyweds

Crumb Cake and Whisper White are the colours that I have used on this card for the Simply Stampin' Challenge based on this sketch:

Stamp sets used are from Stampin' Up, I [Heart} Hearts, French Filigree and Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  The punches used are the Heart to Heart, Modern Label, Word Window, Lace Ribbon Border and Blossoms Petals Builder.  The middle piece of Whisper White was stamped with the French Filigree and embossed with white Stampin' Emboss Powder. I does not show very well in the photo, but it has a shimmery finish.  The leaves from the Blossom Petals Builder Punch were folded in half and put through the crimper on the diagonal to create the ridges in the leaves. Organza ribbon used in bow and Crumb Cake Seam Binding ribbon used to make the ribbon flowers. 

Closer view of the middle embossed piece, the embossing just shows in this picture.


  1. oh this is beautiful, Carolyn. I love the way you've kept the grid lines the same colour as your base, and those ribbon flowers are gorgeous, how did you make them?
    Thanks for joining us this week at Simply Stampin'

  2. Hi Kelly, I made the ribbon flowers using about 10" of Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon and ran a gathering thread along one edge. I then drew the two ends of the thread up and it gathered the ribbon into a scrunched little flower. The ends were tied off, voila finised ribbon flower. Quite simple and quick to make. Carolyn

  3. Beautiful card Carolyn, very subtle and elegant.
