Mr. & Mrs. Card

This is a card I did for a Stampin' Up! Card Swap (post below).  It was a lot of fun to make.  I first did the one with the Very Vanilla trim on the towels, then did the one with the Night of Navy trim and liked it a bit better.

 I found the basic idea on Confessions of a Stamping Addict

Card Stock:  Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla, and Basic Grey
Ink: Bashful Blue (sponging), Basic Grey (sponging towel bar and ends) and Night of Navy (stamping)
Stamp Set:  Petite Pairs
Punches:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Small Heart, 1/2" Circle, Scallop Square
Folder:  Perfect Polka Dots
Stampin' Write Marker:  Night of Navy
Adhesives:  Sticky Strip, Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Snail

Cut all of your pieces first and be sure to sponge the edges of all of your pieces before adhering together. 

Base:  Bashful Blue 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; scored at 4 1/4"
1st layer:  Night of Navy; cut 1/8" smaller on on all 4 sides
2nd layer:  Very Vanilla 4" x 5 1/4"; run through Perfect Polka Dot Folder
Towels: Bashful Blue - 1" x 3 1/2"; scored at 1 3/4" (run through Perfect Polka Dot folder); trim - cut 1" piece of card stock (from what ever color you choose for trim), insert into Scallop Square punch about 1/4".  Attached trim to back of towel.  Adhere the towel together with Sticky Strip
Towel Bar:  Basic Grey 1/4" x 3 1/2"; Ends - 1 1/2" circle cut in half.  Insert towel bar into towels, add a dimentional to each end of the towel bar and a small piece of a dimentional to the back of each End (1/2 circle)
Mr & Mrs:  Using the Night of Navy marker, brush over the "Mr" and "Mrs" and stamp on Very Vanilla card stock, punch using the Small Heart Punch; Attach to towel using a glue dot
Best Wishes: Cut 1 Scallop Oval with Bashful Blue; using the Mat Pack, pierce a hole in each scallop.  Stamp "Best Wishes" in Night of Navy onto Very Vanilla card stock, punch with Large Oval Punch; adhere with dimentionals.
