A rather special engagement.
My son and his girlfriend got engaged on Friday! This is the card I made for them - it's a bit OTT! I made a simplified step card for the base: fold A4 card crossways to make a tent fold, then cut down the middle to a bit less than halfway. Fold one of the flaps forward and back to make a nice crease, then invert it to make the step. This side view might be more useful than my explanation!
I got the technique from Christina at the card-making-magic website
Papers are Bearly Mine Designs and they're gorgeous! Flowers are Wild Orchid, the sparkly purple flourishes are Marianne. The images are Tickled Pink Stamps - I do love their stamps! Oops! I've chucked the list of Promarkers, though I remember Lil' Lad Luca's suit is done in Cool Grey 2 - 5.
Martha S's hearts punch was used on the horizontal strip and Nesties fro the shapes behind the images. Ribbon and heart pin are from stash.
This is the biggest card I've ever made, and it took ages! I did a bit here and a bit there, but had to keep putting everything away because I was crafting downstairs, since my room was very cold!
Anyway, my son and his fiancee (fiancee!!) like it! Oo, it's so exciting! My baby boy, all grown up!!
Thanks for looking! Have a good week!
luv, Mags x
