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 …

Creative elements engagement card

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.

Pretty print engagement card …

Hi Everyone

Gosh – is it really Wednesday again already? The weeks are really flying by.  So it must mean it’s time to share another card with you…

Silver heart congrats

Silver glimmer paper and the heart framelits from Stampin’ Up! made a pretty centre piece for this engagement card. 

I really love the designer series paper and the way the dry embossing turned out for the background too.

The whisper white organza ribbon added a touch of softness and texture to the card. 

And how gorgeous is the pretty print embossing folder?! It’s available in the current seasonal catalogue if you want (read that as “need”) to get your hands on one.  

I’ve been using it on some Christmas cards too, so do pop back again soon to see those too.

cardstock: whisper white, silver glimmer; stamp sets: itty bitty banners; inks: basic grey; accessories: quatrefancy dsp, whisper white organza ribbon, stampin’ dimensionals, glue dots, heart framelits, pretty print embossing folder, bigshot machine.
