Silver Engagement

Welcome again - and thank you for visiting.

I had fun in the studio yesterday and made a card that is a CASE of this card that I found on Pinterest.


I was asked to make an engagement card, and this concept had been running around my head for a day or so.


I scored the base of the card  making sure it was irregular, and to emphasize the scoring I sponged it with Platinum Planet ink - you can just see the sheen in the photo.


I decided to use not only the small hearts, but also the large one, (these are some of my first stamps that I bought, from the local firm Kiwistamping) - I was thinking to illustrate two hearts, intertwined, beating as one.


The sentiment was cut using a spellbinders ribbon tag, embossed, and then a silver pen run around the edge before I removed the die.  The ribbon was a silver edged one which really finished the card beautifully.

May your day be blessed.
