Your Special Day!

Thank you for visiting today! Mindy here, sharing a card that makes me smile every time I see it.

I was contemplating what type of card I wanted to make, and found this rectangle of heavy chipboard in my stash of supplies from my early scrapbooking days. (I have so many filed away for safekeeping!)

I started this card by stamping the Mums, from JustRite Stamps, on my chip board rectangle, and then colored it in with my Tim Holtz Distressed markers. The rectangle needed a little more zip and pizzaz, so I die cut two strips of the Woodland Border die, from PoppyStamps, and adhered one to each side of the chip board rectangle. 

Before adding the rectangle to the card front, I wrapped a length of crinkle Ribbon around the card base, then tied a double loop bow to adhere to the side. CCNS carries Seam Binding that would work great for ribbon or making bows out of it. You can color it to match your project.

To complete my card, I added a few Cherry Chocolate Dew Drops on the corners for a little more texture, and layer of interest. I also stamped one of the sentiments from the Mums Stamp Set to the image.

I hope you are having a great week, and will join in our Classy Card Weekly Challenge this week. We always love to see what you create with our products.
