I made a wedding/anniversary card with four products that will be available for purchase at Catherine Pooler Designs. First, I used GeoBuilders to stamp an asymmetrical chevron background along the edges of the panel. Then I created a sentiment "You make me happy!" from Wild Bloom and stamped it about 50 times to create my own black and white patterned text paper. I used the And Dies to die cut all three ampersands. I die cut the ampersands a second time from vellum and layered it over the black and white ampersands to mute it and give it an ethereal feel.

For the main sentiment, I heat embossed a custom sentiment using And Sentiments. I used a paper trimmer and scissors to create the fishtail banner, which is lined with silver glitter cardstock on the bottom. The two larger ampersands and the banner are popped up with foam tape and the smallest ampersand is adhered flat to the panel with glue dots.

Eligibility for prizes ends at noon on September 1, 2016 and the three winners will be announced on Catherine's blog later that day. Be sure to check back then to see if you're one of the lucky winners!

Thanks so much for hopping with us!
