My niece, Keryn, got engaged on her visit home in December. It was lovely to have them back from Cape Town, where she teaches and her fiance works in the motor industry. They've had a very difficult year, but closed it with this very joyful occasion and cruised into 2013 with happy, positive thoughts and heaps of good wishes from us all!
I made this card for them using a lovely photograph I had on file. Nice to personalise cards, when you can.
I started off with a 15cm square red card, and using a MFT edge die, scalloped the bottom of the card so that the card inner showed up the edge in contrast. I embossed the front of the red card with my favorite folder, Swiss Dots, and die cut a white heart so that it created a frame for the photograph. The heart was embossed with a Sizzix Stampin Up folder, Lattice. I used some very pretty daisy ribbon with a die cut buckle and a bling center. A banner with Congrats! finished it off.
May they will always remember the happiness this day brought!
