Create this clean and simple congrats card in just minutes using two decorative punches and the Simply Wonderful stamp set (a free Sale-a-bration gift with qualifying purchase). This classic card, in black and white, is perfect for a wedding or perhaps a graduation.
- To isolate the word "congrats", cover the rest of the stamp images using washi tape (or a post-it note). Ink the stamp (I used Whisper White Craft Ink), then carefully remove the tape. Stamp the image as you normally would.
- I used Chalkboard Paper for the "congrats" banner (love it!), but Basic Black cardstock will work just fine.
- The full image is stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cropped using the wide oval punch.
- The shaped panel behind the sentiment is created using the new Ornate Tag Topper Punch. Starting with a 2" x 4-1/2" strip of Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper, each end is cropped using the punch.
- Basic Black Baker's Twine is threaded through the holes created by the tag punch. TIP: Use separate pieces of Baker's Twine to tie bows to the original pieces of Baker's Twine.
- Pearl Basic Jewels give this card one final touch of class.
- Use a narrow strip of the same patterned paper to add an easy but elegant touch to the envelope.
