Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge


So this month's PTI Blog Hop theme was to use office supplies. And my MIL needed a wedding card so combining the two was a bit challenging. I was told the wedding invite had a whole "going green" theme, so I opted for a less traditional wedding color scheme of kraft, vintage cream and green.

I used Giga Guidelines and stamped it in green. Then went over the whole thing with a background from Background Basics Text Style I in Versamark. I distressed the edges with some tea dye inks. And mounted it on a cream panel with distressed edges. I die cut a labels three on spring moss. It looked a bit plain so I also stamped it with Text Style. I topped it off with a ribbon and added a couple staples for some added interest.

Then I stamped the inside with the companion sentiment.


The Dets:
Stamps: PTI Giga Guidelines, Text Style Background, Verve Wishing You
Paper: PTI ripe avocado, spring moss, cream cardstock
Ink: Versamagic spanish moss & tea leaves, Versamark, Brilliance pearlescent chocolate
Accessories: staples, spellbinders circles, labels eight & three, twine, PTI spring moss ribbon, cream ribbon, kaiser pearls
