A Personal Engagement

Hi Everyone!!!  Recently I had a friend ask if I could make an engagement card for her to give to her nephew and fiancee.  The invitation was purple, black and white - so I went with that colour palette.  She also wanted to have their names on the card - JustRite to the rescue!!  :)  Actually, that was the first thing that drew me into JustRite, was the ability to customise my cards with names and dates and such.

I started with a base of black and layered with white and some purple bazzill that I embossed with a heart embossing folder from Provocraft's Love Language set.  Next I added a square of MME Lush DP which was layered with a piece of black cut with Label 16 Nestabilities and then added a piece of white May Arts Satin Ribbon.  I created the sentiment panel with the Romantic Sentiments Centers and customised the outside with the 15 point font from the 2" Wood Stamper, Font and Center set.  I cut it out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with the new Lacey Circles Nestabilities and popped it all up on foam tape.  To finish I added a little bling to each of the corners!!  :)

Stamps - Romantic Sentiments Centers, 2" Wood Stamper, Font and Center Set (JustRite)
Paper - Black, White, Purple Bazzill, MME Lush DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Label 16, Large Circle and Lacy Circle Nestabilities, May Arts Satin Ribbon, Love Language EF, Kaisercraft Silver Rhinestones, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
