PTI April Blog Hop



It's Blog Hop Time again, boy times flies. This is my second time participating and I'm glad you stopped by to check out my contribution to the hop.

A friend of mine needed a wedding card and I thought most people give a monitary gift and the Recipe Wrap Up would work great.


I used a shimmery ivory cardstock for the base and added some melon berry for alittle color. I created a belly band to help keep the card closed and added a focal image using the Nestabilities Label One dies. The stamped image is from the Wedding Day set as well as the sentiment. A decorative punch by Fiskars was used on the front too.


For the inside, I just made one pocket to place the monitary gift in and the sentiment is from Birthday Basics. I love how this is simple by elegant, perfect for a wedding.

Supplies
Stamps: Wedding Day and Birthday Basics
Ink: melon berry
Paper: shimmery ivory cardstock (sorry, dont know who makes it), melon berry
Other: Fiskars sunburst punch, Nestabilities Label One dies, pearl
