Paper Wishes

The latest edition of the Paper Wishes catalog came today and included a similar version of this card made by LeNae Gehrig. As soon as I saw it I had to dig into my small scrap drawer for a few coordinating pieces. The red cardstock base had been used at one time for something I cut out on the cricut machine. Instead of cutting that part off, I used the negative space to my advantage and embellished the parentheses with a heart cut from the piece of (very old) wedding sentiments patterned paper.
Also arriving in the mail was the latest Creating Keepsakes magazine with this great idea for using washi tape to make flowers. So easy! Simply start with a scrap of paper and fold the decorative tape in approximate quarter inch back and forth,  continueing around the perimeter. Finish with a bling,  button, brad or just another piece of paper! I used a few punched circles found in the bottom of the punch box to adhere my tape onto.  You could use border stickers or strips, punched border strips, fabric or ribbons, too. Just put a glue dot in the middle of your bottom layer and go to town around and around :-)

This card is dedicated to my cousin Martha who plans to be married this summer. May everyday of your marriage be just as pleasant as when you first started dating Roberto :-) Congrats!
