Congratulations Card

Today I am sharing a card that I made for a colleague of mine who is getting married in the fall. I wanted to make this card big enough so that all of us at work could sign it. I decided to make a Tag Accordion card.

Here is the front/back view

And the inside view

As you can see, there are 4 tags that you can pull. The tags are mostly Whisper White, except for some decorative details on the top and bottom of each. I wanted to make sure there would be enough space for people’s messages of congratulations to her. We all chipped in and got her a gift card which will be adhered to the fourth tag with a piece of sticky strip. You could make this into a small album by putting some pictures on the tags and on the inside of the card.

For the front of the card, I stamped the wedding cake image from Fast and Fun Notes (a must have set!) and used my blender pens and pastels to color it. I love how the colors are so soft!

I used some Baja Breeze and Regal Rose strips to make a weave pattern over my Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
