Coral Pink and Blue Jigsaw Piece Hedgehogs Anniversary

This is the card I made for the lovely Alex and her husband for their wedding anniversary recently. I am also entering it into a couple of challenges:

I started by stamping the image from the Penny Black Piece of My Heart stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured using the Copic Sketch markers.

  • Hedgehogs: E57, E43, E40, E02, E00, R20

  • Jigsaw: E04, E02, E00, N9

  • Shadow: E43, E40
The image was then cut out using the Mega Curved Rectangles Nestabilities die, and aqua pearl brads from Papermania were added in the top corners.

A panel of the coral pink card was cut out and a panel of the salmon pink Brocade paper from the K&Co Classic K Bailey paper pad was matted onto it. A strip of the light blue Flourish paper from the same paper pad was matted onto the coral pink card and attached across the larger panel.

A panel of the coral pink card was cut out using the Mega Curved Rectangles die and embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. This was attached to the larger panel and a tied  length of light blue organza ribbon was wrapped around the panel. The image panel was attached over the ribbon.

The sentiment panel was created by stamping the word stamp from the Making Memories Express It stamp set using the Onyx Black ink onto the white card and matted onto the coral pink card.
