Engagement Card

I made an Engagement card last year for dear friends of ours and ran out of time to photograph it. While at their place a couple of weeks ago I noticed the card on display and cheekily asked if I could photograph it. So here it is:-

This card was made in the very early days of me being introduced into Stampin' Up! so am not 100% sure what cardstock (if any) I had used. The base of the card is a brown cardstock followed by a layer of some sort of teal. I used the Priceless wheel in Close to Cocoa on a vanilla cardstock. I then stamped, cut out and embossed two hearts in copper. It is a bit hard to see in this photo but both of the hearts are embossed just one has come up a bit shiny. I also used the slit punch to make my scalloped edge on the bottom. The ribbon is a beautiful organza which I attached with three small brads on the left hand side.

Stamps: Priceless wheel; Family Phrases

Inks: Close to Cocoa
