An engagement card


Another post already??? The shock! I am enjoying a lovely day off and thought I might post another card. Mum needed an engagement card and I did a blog search for the 'Always' stamp set. I liked this one on Splitcoast. I changed it a little by using 'Marina Mist' instead of 'Bashful Blue' and changed the 'Whisper White' to 'Shimmery White'. I love it for weddings and engagements or any fancy occasion really. I also added a piece of 'Marina Mist' DSP from the Subtles Pattern Stack. I also only wanted two hearts.

I also took a close up to show the 'shimmer'. I 'painted' the 'Marina 'Mist' CS around the edges with 'Champagne Mist' Shimmer Paint, I love effect that it gives. It got quite a bit of use on my Christmas cards last year.

The sentiment is from 'Well Scripted'. I added a 'Marina Mist' button tied with a piece of 3.2mm VV Taffeta ribbon. Finally a stick-on pearl to finish it off. Mum seemed quite happy with it, which was the whole aim really.

I need o make a wedding card & a b'day card today, but really need a cuppa first ;-)

Have a great day,

Beautiful Fi. Love the shimmer, the blue & white scheme, the cute little pearl, the be-ribboned button & the turned up corner. :)
