This week’s challenge over at: Crazy4Challenges is to put a ribbon on it! So first I want to say this is a challenge that everyone should take because you literally can make any kind, color, and type of card you want! Just put a ribbon on it. I decided to make a wedding card. First, because I’m still glowing from attending my first granddaughter’s wedding a few months ago and second because yrs. ago I saw a wedding card on Pinterest with Mr. and Mrs. towels with a bow above the towels.
Step 1: The card measures 4.75″ x 6″ so score an 11″ x 8.5″ pc. of white cardstock at 5.5″ and fold at the score line for a book fold card.
Step 2: With white cardstock, cut a rectangle using: 1120 – Stitched Rectangles
Use the largest die in this set above that measures 4.5″ x 5.75″.
Step 3: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: Entwined Hearts emboss the “stitched rectangle”. Here’s a close up over the sentiment that shows the embossing.
Step 4: The ribbon I chose looked like it was stitched on the edges to go along with the stitched rectangle. I made a bow with about 10 inches of ribbon and then cut the ends leaving enough to tape them under the left side top and bottom edges. Then adhered this layer to the front of the base card.
Step 5: On a scrap piece of white cardstock about 4 x 4″, I stamped the Mr. and Mrs. with clear embossing ink and then used silver metallic embossing powder to make the towels. I separated the mr. and mrs. by an inch apart so I could cut the two towels using the smallest die in this set by Spellbinders: Card Creator
Step 6: Cut a strip of silver metallic mirror cardstock that measures 2″ x .25″. Fold the top end of each of the towels but without creasing that fold. (you want the towels to thick and luxurious)
As you see in the photo above I didn’t glue the towels over this strip so as the bottom edges were even. LOL So I fixed that with adding shiny little white trim at the end of the towels from a really old set of border stickers from Martha Stewart.
Add a small silver self adhesive ball to each end of the silver strip as seen above. Adhere the towel rack to the front of the card as shown using a large foam dot on both the top and bottom of both towels a half inch from the stitching as shown.
Step 7: The sentiment is cut from silver mirror cardstock using Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1050 – Best Wishes

That’s It! I sure appreciate you stopping by!
