I’ve got an engagement card to share with you today which I made for a special order. The theme was a rustic yet elegant look. This is an A5 card to which I added the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. The front of my card was trimmed about 1.5cm shorter on the width. Then I added a strip of Designer Series Paper on the inside of the card, creating a pretty border.
I paired the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack and Designer Series Paper with the Forever Blossoms stamp set to achieve just the right touch of rustic and added the beautiful Silver Metallic Edged ribbon to add the touch of elegance. I am a huge fan of gingham (you might have guessed) and if it’s rustic, gingham’s in. The Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack has 4 different patterns in all our Neutral colours. This collection is a must have in my Designer Series Paper stash as neutral colours work in with a lot of projects. The gingham heart was punched out with one of the hearts from the Heart Punch Pack. It was then adhered to the reverse of one of the heart doilies.
I stamped the blossoms on Shimmery White cardstock in Early Espresso ink. I went against the general rule of using water-based markers with a non-water based ink pad – like Stazon. The image was coloured in with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers, using an Aqua Painter to blend it. As I wanted a softer look, I chose the Early Espresso ink and I didn’t really mind that it blended in a bit as it added to the rustic look of the card.
The inside of the card was decorated with a couple of cards from the Memories & More Card Pack. Adding this was a perfect touch for this happy couple. Memories & More card packs are great for scrapbooking as well cardmaking, as I’ve done here.
