Happy Friday peeps! Yay, the weekend is almost here! Looking forward to spending some time with friends tomorrow! A customer asked me to make an engagement card, and I really had to scramble as I realized I have very few stamps for that occasion! But I remembered that I had some of these beautiful laser-cut cards from last year, so I looked through my stash of paper to find something to back the heart:
I first stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral, then I embossed the flourish from Creative Elements in clear embossing powder on the front. It’s a subtle look but very pretty. I backed the heart cut-out with a paper that would work with the inside of the card as well, stamping a wee sentiment inside the flourish:
and added another sentiment and butterflies on the right side:
I finished it off with a couple of butterflies stamped in Versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder, punched and adhered to the side of the heart. Oh, and I added that pretty bow!
I was all ready to give this to my customer, using the Blush Blossom envelope that came with the card, but that big honkin’ bow was really squished, so I used my new Envelope Punch Board to make one to fit! How exciting! This little tool is SO COOL! I had some random scrapbook paper that complemented my colors and look how wonderfully it came out:
My friend Martha gave me some glittery pumpkin stickers, so Cassidy decided to make her mom a card:
It opened the wrong way, but who cares?!
