It's time for the April 2020 Challenge over at The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  For this month's challenge designed by Sandra Mastello, you can select any three of the design elements in a row on the board going in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal direction.  I have chosen the vertical row of Flowers | Die-Cut | Oval and the horizontal row of Flowers | Ribbon | Texture.

White and navy has always been such a classic go to combination for all occasion cards.  This month's challenge is not color based so I chose the row of elements that best fit this color combination as this is definitely a time to create lots of encouragement cards.  Beautiful Promenade was crying from my stamp shelves to be used...  so I happily listened and enjoyed inking it up again! 

The Stamparatus was perfect for creating the hinge stamped border on a Whisper White card front layer.  The left side was embossed twice with the straight piece from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  The remains edges were softened with the paper tearing technique.  The Night of Navy banner created from the largest Stitched Nested Labels die made the perfect backdrop to the delicate floral oval frame that was die cut twice - once in Night of Navy and once in Whisper White.  The Whisper White oval was die cut with the the additional oval die creating the peak through to the white heat embossed sentiment.   Glue dots adhered the ovals together which partially glued onto the Night of Navy banner.  After double wrapping White Baker's Twine twice around the banner and tying off with a bow, the layer was adhered to the hinge stamped layer, which was also edged with paper tearing, with dimensionals.  Pearls were added to complete the classic feel of the card.

For the inside, the edges were created identical to the card front.  The floral image and sentiments were stamped in Night of Navy.  And, yes, the envelope was also stamped!

I hope that today's project has inspired you to participate in The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge, #JOSTTT016.  Please be sure to pop over to receive more inspiration from the other design team members and I look forward to seeing your entry (entries) on the blog!

  1. You're right, navy and white is a classic color combo that never fails to look great. Love the design, and the inside is beautiful, too!

  2. Well we all so need the sentiments on this card right now Angie - the colour combo is a lovely strong combo which befits those words.
