Sketch card SOS41 – wedding acceptance

It’s time for a Sketch-on-Saturday idea folks ;)
I am backtracking to make this number SOS41 as I got muddled for last week’s and skipped straight to 42! Anyways, here it is with an idea not strictly for a sketch, but to make a specifc kind of folded card:

Sketch-on-Saturday SOS41 gatefold card ideaI needed to make a card to say thanks for a wedding invitation we received this week, and the design of their invite was kraft with cream and bright turquoise ribbon, so I echoed this theme in the card I made and used it for my inspiration:

Here’s a look at the ribbon closure, which is just tied by passing the ribbon through heart-punched holes… Cute…

I stamped the ‘acceptance’ message, in turquoise ink, using a peg alpha stamp set (Hampton Arts), and will simply write our reply inside the heart ;)

Fun, and made that bit extra special by using the gatefold ‘sketch’ fold.
Back soon friends, Rx
