Making cards for happy occasions can't help but bring a smile to my face! I was asked to make a card for a friend whose daughter just got engaged. I love to hear these types of stories and they always bring back such happy memories to me as I recall my engagement. I know the sheer joy the couple must be feeling. To be asked to share in this happy time in a small way is an honor.
This is the card I made for Courtney and Paul. I used a lovely engagement ring stamp by Renaissance Art Stamps, and, to make it a sparkler, I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the stone.
I really love this sheet of heart paper that looks almost watercolored that I used for the background. It was from one of my older Simon Says Stamp card kits. I rounded opposite edges on the card and the background paper for a bit of a twist from my usual straight lines.
Wishing Courtney and Paul every happiness as they begin their life together!
Until next time!
