A Perfect Pair

Stampin up bright delights rub-ons
I haven’t made a wedding card in awhile and decided to play with a lively one for today’s Mojo Monday Sketch.

My card base is 4.25 x 5.5 and scored at the top.  I used a Scallop Border Punch to doll up the bottom (and the back).  TIP:   I initially went longer than 5.5″ by about 1/2″ (top to bottom) since I knew I would lose a little length when I used the punch.

No stamps or ink required.  The pear is from Stampin’ Up!’s Bright Delights Rub-Ons.  Crisp and easy placement on a 2 x 2 square of Whisper White is a snap.  A white Latte Designer Button with a sliver of Chocolate Chip card stock threaded through gives the pear 3-D pizzazz.

Stampin up bright delights pear After piercing the edges, the pear panel was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to Chocolate Chip.  TIP:  I prefer using dimensionals when I layer paper pierced panels so that the little holes don’t get smashed by layering paper to paper.  Kiwi Kiss card stock follows.

I layered a Chocolate Chip checked pattern from Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper (2.25 x 2.25) over another square of Kiwi Kiss.  The horizontal panel above the scallop edge is a combination of Kiwi Kiss card stock and a Hidden Garden Rub-On. 

The final touches are two more Latte Designer Buttons (I gotta order more of these guys–love ’em) and a “perfect pair” sentiment from Chit Chat Rub-Ons.  TIP:  Buttons stay securely in place with Mini Glue Dots.
