This card was made for an order from a work friend who requested a card for her daughter’s engagement. I have been in a bit of a slump lately. The All My Love Suite was just perfect to create this engagement card to inspire me and give me a starting point with colours. As it was an Engagement card I wanted to create a larger card so I folded a sheet of Blushing Bride cardstock in half to create the A5 card base.
I die cut the edgelit on Whisper White cardstock which still left it attached to the cardstock but gave those nice cut outs from the flowers. I stamped the leaves in Soft Sea Foam on top of this piece to give a fuller look. On another piece of Whisper White cardstock the flowers and leaves were stamped. Then this panel of cardstock was adhered behind the die cut panel so the colours showed through. This immediately added the colour.
The extra flower on top was inked in Blushing Bride first. Then using a sponge dauber I added some Lovely Lipstick ink around the edges to give the two-tone effect. For the leaves I used this same method with Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock. There are matching dies to cut out the flower and leaves and this made it easy to create and add more dimension to that die cut panel.
The sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. In this set you get 2 sets of stamps and the sentiment fit so many occasions. I especially like the font used which is used in this set. The Epoxy Heart Droplets come clear and you get 72 hearts in 3 different sizes. I coloured these in with the Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend. I did 3 coats of colour, leaving a bit of drying time between each. The Lovely Lipstick hearts were the perfect finishing touch for my card.
My friend loved the card and that made me so happy because I love sharing my passion of card making and seeing the joy it brings the recipient.
