For a Special Couple

Hi Bloggers.

All peachy today for today's post. This could easily be an anniversary card as well a wedding card.

For the background, I stamped one of the images from the Creative Expressions Design Elements Stamp Set using Eco Green Paris Trunk Dye Ink Pad in Peach Satin.

I popped 3 panels of white card through the Grand Calibur with the Heart Confetti Mask. I inked around the edges with the Peach Satin ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Mr & Mrs Stamp Set again using the Peach Satin ink and then stamped the frame from the same stamp set over it. I embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Fourteen which fits perfectly. I made a faux nestie by drawing around the die and cutting out with scissors.

I made 3 ribbon flowers - 1 from White Crochet Ribbon dyed with the Peach Satin Ink, 1 from Peach Fizz Vintage Ribbon and White Wrinkle-Edge Ribbon and 1 from White Silky Crush Ribbon (cut in half length-ways but both pieces used). I cut some leaves out using the Spellbinders Foliage Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown,

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Beautiful card Julia. Love the colours.

  2. Hi Julia
    Love the colours, peach seems to be the in colour for you just now. Changing the sentiment would make this card very versatile.


  3. What a great card Julia, love the peach colour, and so have to get some of the ribbons, every time I see the flowers, my mind says, you have to have it, and my purse says forget it!. Bx

  4. Perfect!!
    Just the inspiration I need as I have 2 wedding cards I have to make LOL!
    Love the colours and the embossing.

  5. Hi Julia, I love the colours and layout of this card..:) I will definitely try this layout with the dies I already have.. I don't have the stamps but will compromise by using orange flourishes on a blank page in MCS..:)..Thanks for your fab inspiration each day...Enjoy your crafting..:)

  8. Hi Julia

    I have been away on holiday so just catching up. Like the other posts, I really like the colours of this card and can see so many uses for it.

    As ever, I an struggling for ideas for more masculine cards (two birthdays fast approaching) so any inspiration would be very welcome!

    Take care
