We recently had the joy of seeing an older couple of 'singles' from our church family announce their engagement, and I made this card for them.
The cats are a very old image, possibly 20 years, as it was one of my original stamps. I cannot read the label now to know who made it. They were embossed in gold on a piece of paper that had been sprayed with Altenew Frayed Leaf Mica spray, and mounted onto some pale green card with gold mirror card under two opposing corners.
The sentiment was also gold embossed, but directly onto the green card base, again a very old stamp but still available from Montarga Stamps
The heart was painted with Cosmic Shimmer Lustre Polish Raspberry Sorbet
The green card was a snippet in my card 'bits' file, and I had already die cut it The same sprayed card was layered under the apertures - here you can just see a bit of the shimmer from the spray.
I also lightly sprayed the green card with TH Mica spray, Flickering Candle, and after assembling the layers, using gold under the corners of the green before the maroon base, I added the sequins with a tiny gold metallic bead.
I strip of sparkly Scotch tape finished the inside.
The card was very well received by the couple.
