Best Wishes Card




I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with pink card and then green and white gingham card. I distressed and inked all the edges of these layers

I have added hessian ribbon and pink satin ribbon across my card. I mounted the image onto a scalloped circle that I cut with a Xcut die from a nesting set. I attached that to the card. I used a nesting set of dies from The Works to cut the pink and white shapes to add the sentiment to that I cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I also cut the flourishes with a Cheery Lynn die. I attached these elements to my card before adding the floral and pearls elements to complete my card.

I made a box for my card using my score board. I covered my box with the same pink and gingham paper as my card. I attached the hessian ribbon and pink satin ribbon across the box to match my card. I then added a die cut tag that I cut with a Joy die.
