Wedding Congratulations Card - Crafty Collaborations Sketch Challenge Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

The Crafty Collaborations team is comprised of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. Each month, we participate in several collaborative projects including blog hops, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.

Today's card is a sketch challenge, I just love these for using up scraps and getting your crafty mojo going. Today I have used the beautiful Love You Always dsp and foil sheets as it is retiring so I am using up my last few pieces but this design would work just as well with any dsp. This is the sketch challenge that we all followed.


1 piece of petal pink card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
2 pieces of basic white card  3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
2 pieces of dsp 2" square
1 piece of foil 2" square
Scraps to cut the hearts
Give it a Whirl dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Vine Designs stamp set
Snail Mail combo twine pack
Gray Granite ink
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply Scored
Bone folder


On the long side score the petal pink card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut the hearts.

Stamp the sentiment in the bottom left corner of the basic white mat layer.

Arrange the dsp and foil squares on the basic white and adhere in place, I have added the top one with dimensionals. Arrange the hearts and add with dimensionals.

Wrap the twine around the mat layer three times and secure on the back with some sticky tape then adhere this mat layer to the card front.

Adhere the remaining white mat to the inside of the card to write your message, I have also added more die cut hearts.
