CC201: Kraft, Baja, Not Quite Navy



This is my color challenge 201 card! Don't you {heart} these colors? I made the card for my BFF Debbie and her DH Chris (Todd's BFF). It was a cold and sunny day back on January 13th, 2001. Debbie was yawning uncontrollably (it's a nervous thing)...

It was one of the most beautiful weddings and I was honored to be the NUMBER 2 lady in the service (yeah, Debbie was Number 1)....Todd was the best man, I was Matron of Honor and baby Karen was flower girl (she was only 3). Victoria was just over a year old. Good times! Good times! So Todd and I are going out to dinner with the happy couple! I thought I would make a card for the occasion!

This was a SUPER-DEE-DUPER easy card! Kraft base, punch the edges with the corner rounder. Then a strip of not quite navy. I punched it with the Martha edge punch. Then I added a strip of white cardstock. I put a mayarts ribbon (white polkadot) around the card. The main image is from Papertrey Ink (Wedding Day). I punched the scalloped circle with my nestabilities, then stamped the circle image with Baja breeze (it is Baja cardstock). I stamped the same image again on the white circle and punched it out with the nestability circle. Then I punched an even SMALLER circle, stamped the flourish from the Wedding Day set in baja. I added that final image with dimensionals to the two previous layers. I used some stickles on the flourish. The sentiment was perfect....Happily Ever After - in Not quite Navy ink. I love this font! Simple card. I love the simple clean look! What do you think?


stamps: Papertrey Ink {Wedding Day}
paper: kraft, baja breeze, whisper white, not quite navy
ink: baja breeze, not quite navy
misc: martha stewart edge punch, corner rounder (SU!), ribbon (mayarts), stickles, nestabilities, dimensionals

Beautiful card! I just want to know, how on Earth do you get the MS punch to go through SU cs?! I can't ever seem to get it to work even after punching foil.
