Engagement card creative elements by Stampin’ Up …

I often make cards for my friends and family – I love having a new project to focus on.  So when my friend, Clare, asked me to make an engagement card in red and white, I was only too happy to oblige …

I stamped the pretty flourishes from the creative elements stamp set by Stampin’ Up, across the card, and added a few butterflies from the Fabulous You set here and there too.  (These stamp sets are being retired at the end of June, so grab yours while you can.)

The sentiment was computer generated, then embossed with the square designer frame embossing folder and big shot machine.  The frame was cut out by hand using my paper snips and adhered to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.

Tiny hearts, punched out with the owl punch, were adhered in a random pattern, and a sprinkling of rhinestones added too.  And finally, a tiny, fork-tied bow was adhered with mini glue dots.  This card would be equally fitting as an anniversary or wedding card – just change up the colours to fit the occasion.

A little bit of glimmer for a sparkling engagement …

It was such a pleasure to make the card I have to share with you today.  I made it for my daughter to send to her friends who just got engaged. 

I started with a square card base and some quatrefancy designer series paper – I just love the daffodil delight pattern – I think it is such a gorgeous, bright and cheerful colour.  For the embellishments, I played with different sizes of heart framelits from Stampin’ Up! to cut out the heart from silver glimmer paper …

I couldn’t find an engagement sentiment in my stash, so used the congratulations from the itty bitty banners set instead.

Finally, I tied a length of whisper white organza ribbon around the card and added a hand-tied bow with mini glue dots. I seriously love this ribbon – it ties so beautifully and sits perfectly on any card.
