Giggle Greetings Congratulations Card

by Joanne James29. April 2015 08:40

Today's card is a congratulations card that I made for someone I know who recently achieved a long-awaited promotion and I wanted to make her a quick card to celebrate her success. This week's sketch layout over at Fab Friday was perfect for what I had in mind:

I decided to use one of the fun images in the Giggle Greetings set and do a little colouring with my now-discontinued Blendabilities on the main image - here is my card:

I used the colours of the Retro Fresh washi tape for my card colour scheme, with a base of So Saffron and mats in Tangerine Tango and Baked Brown Sugar. I stamped my fun dog image on Very Vanilla in Memento Black and coloured him with my skin-tone Blendabilties (although in retrospect I think he might have looked better watercoloured in Baked Brown Sugar, but there we are!) I added a piece of washi tape on Very Vanilla with a gold button and linen thread as my embellishment and a banner flag from the retired Retro Fresh paper too.

A fun card to wish someone well with their new career path - I love the images in these sets and are so pleased that they aren't leaving the catalogue this year. I'll be back later with this week's Wednesday Weekly Deals - there appear to be some problems at the store currently and they haven't been updated. Until then, happy stampin'!

Ee, what a great idea to mount your washi on the CS - why didn't I think of that?!  Perfect quick and light congrats card - I bet it's appreciated!  Thank so much for playing at Fab Friday!
