Tickled Pink

I have been wanting to try out my Sticky Cuts Letters ever since I bought them (several months ago), and today I decided to use one on my card for Kristina Werner’s 11th Color Inspiration challenge.

My card measures 6″ x 3″ and is made out of textured Whisper White card stock. I placed the sticky letter H on a piece of So Saffron Prints Designer Series paper and cut around the letter. Then I removed the red lining and poured on tiny silver micro beads. It’s a good idea to do this over a Powder Pal or other type of receptacle (and I’m glad I remembered to do so).

The sentiment was first inked up with Going Gray ink, and then I just went over the words “happy” and “pink” with my Old Olive and Rose Red markers. Wide Old Olive grosgrain ribbon was adhered to the front of the card with Sticky Strip and decorated with seven Rose Red brads (the ribbon on the inside hides the prongs). I layered a couple of felt flowers on top of each other and attached them to the ribbon with a brad.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Wonderful. I’ve seen those sticky cut letters, but never tried them … onto the ‘wish list’. TFS, Amy.

    This is such a fresh, clean look. The letter with the microbeads looks great. Super design and mix of colors. Awesome card.
