Three in One

Thursday, April 25, 2013

We've got an outing to Mahaffie Farmstead today, and the weather couldn't possibly be any more perfect.  So much to look forward to!  But before we're off and as anniversary season is quickly approaching, I wanted to stop in here to share a sweet, little number with you all.
I started this card by overlaying a piece of mint, floral, patterned paper on a White, cardstock, card base; stamping the "HAPPY anniversary" sentiment, in Jet Black ink, on a strip of vellum; laying it over the card face, just above horizontal center; and machine stitching, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, around its outside edges, anchoring the sentiment strip as I went.  I then dry embossed a piece of Oatmeal cardstock with the woodgrain design, tucked it under the vellum strip, and adhered it in the center of the card face.  A length of pink ribbon was then wrapped, around the card face, just right of vertical center and thread under the vellum strip; tied, in a bow, near the top edge of the card face; and embellished with a mint, fringed ribbon, tied in a bow, as well as a crystal button, laced with a hemp twine bow.
A floral, "together" flashcard was then adhered just under the embellished bow...
and dressed up with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, cake, which was colored with colored pencils and mineral spirits; hand cut out; adhered, in its respective location, with foam tape; topped with a pink, paper blossom; and embellished, with Dazzling Details, throughout the rings of pearls.
Inspiration for this card came from the Tuesday Trigger: Pretty Little Petits Fours in the Moxie Fab World (LOVED that yummy, white, woodgrain background!)...
Pinspired's Challenge #8...
and Scrapping Everyday Miracles' April Card Sketch Challenge.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Blessings!
