Stampin for the Weekend
The challenge for Stampin for the Weekend is to make a pocket card. I needed to make a wedding card for an up coming wedding. Since I would probably be writing a check I thought why not make a pocket card for the check. I decided I needed to make a practice one first. That is the pink and green one. I used DCWV The Spring Stack for the printed paper, green card stock for the accent which I cut with my Fiskars punch and my square Nestabilities. I also used my Scor-pal to score the folds. I am so happy I bought the Scor-pal. I really use it a lot. The stamp is A Muse and I colored the bride with a Spica “Twinkling like a stars,” pen. Then I tied it shut with some shear pink and white ribbon.
The second card I made with paper I bought specifically for this wedding card. It is Basic Gray porcelain with a matching green card stock. I used the same stamp from A Muse, and colored it with the same pen. I punched it with a different Fiskars punch that I thought went better with the paper. I tied it closed with a shear ribbon that has a gold sheen. Now I am not sure which one I like better. I am happy with the way they both turned out. What do you think?
I was just checking out some more challenges and this card works for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge.
