Engaged!



My niece has got engaged so this card is to help the happy couple know that we are happy for them. I love white on white cards as I love how they can have an innocence when used for a baby card , or crisp elegance for other occasions.

I decided to use the inspiration of a piece of work I did when at school for my art o level Victorian love cards. These were often ornate and embroidered piece of work sent as valentines and I thought these spellbinders dies offered that feel.                                                                                                I added lacy butterflies and little die cut hearts on bows and the multiple layers just added the ornate feel to the card.

The roses are magnolia and were a stamped image I received many moons ago in a stamped image swap. I simply coloured with promarkers and fussy cut them before sticking to the card.


I added further dimension to the layers by sticking them with sticky pads and finished with a pink peel-off sentiment.

My niece and her now fiance went to Las Vegas for their dream holiday and after taking her on a helicopter ride across and into the grand canyon he proposed, a secret only she had no idea about and apparently even the helicopter pilot was in tears.
