ENGAGEMENT



So the big news of the Easter weekend for my family is that my cousin Kate got engaged on Good Friday ... everyone's so excited! I decided to make Kate and Matthew a stationary set with little monogrammed notecards to use. Nichole Heady over at Papertrey Ink sells some cute little heart shaped tins and Amy Rysavy at http://www.prairiepaperandink.typepad.com/ made a gorgeous set of notecards to go in hers. I decided to CASE Amy's and I came up with this.


Recipe

Papertrey Ink Heart Shaped Tin
SU DSP Afternoon Tea
SU Double Stitched Ribbon, Soft Sky
SU flower punches and Primas
5"x3" notecards in PTI's white c/stock
Stamps by PTI, initials, Ambassador and frame, Borders & Corners Square

I also made a congratulations card for Kate and Matthew. I made it square using PTI's white c/stock along with SU's Mellow Moss and SU's ring from 'Fairytale Wedding'. I used SU's coordinating circle punches along with SU's Scallop punch and a strip of ribbon. Easy Peasy! Dazzling Diamonds made the ring come to life! CONGRATULATIONS KATE

Hi msnrossman. The details for the engagement ring card are as follows:

Ring Stamp set from SU's retired set 'Fairytale Wedding' (can be purchased on ebay)
The card is 4.25" square, with a layer of Mellow Moss cut at 4" square, another square of white card cut at 3.75" ... then I made the ring with dazzling diamonds glitter (SU) punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch, that's layered onto a 1 3/8" piece of Barely Banana cardstock which is mounted on a scallop circle punched out of Mellow Moss. The Ribbon is from Michaels.
