On Your Special Day - Woodware USA Challenge 26

Pin It
Need to make a card for an upcoming Wedding or Annversary? This week's challenge at Woodware USA (WWUSAC26) is the perfect chance for you to get it done, and be entered for the MONTHLY PRIZE giveaway. Woodware USA Challenge #26 is to create a Wedding or Anniversary card.

Since I didn't have any specific wedding sets from Woodware USA, it allowed me to look at my current sets in a new light. I started by stamping one of the little decorative stamps from Special Wishes repeatedly across the bottom portion of my white cardstock piece. The light pink ink matched the pink cardstock mat behind it.

For the sentiment, I used 'On Your Special Day' from Woodware USA's Elegant Cameos set. This sentiment is suitable for lots of different occasions and perfect for this wedding card. For some final touches I embossed the bottom of the turquoise card base, added a metal heart I painted white and added a faux-bow onto my ribbon strip. The layout on this card was inspired by the latest sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping - Fall to Layout 139.

To see all of the beautiful design team samples, and to find out how you can play along and enter to win the MONTHLY PRIZE, click HERE.

Just the details… (1) Stamped the sentiment in pink, next to the painted metal heart, (2) Rounded the edges of the white and pink layers and used dimensional foam to adhere to card, (3) Placed the ribbon strip through the metal heart and adhered the faux-bow to the top.
