Engagement Card

An engagement in the family was the reason for this card, or at least the reason to make a card of some sort, but what to make? I recently bought some of the Britannia Flower Dies and have been playing with making roses, and fuchsias etc so it seemed like I good idea to have a go at using the flowers on a card.

Before being made into flowers the die cut flower shapes were painted with Twinkling H20 paints, English Lavender for the petals, Mustard Green for the calyx and leafy stems. When dry both paint colours have a lovely golden shimmer which I hope you can see in the photo.  The "Celebrate" sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in gold onto the die cut in the centre. The stamp is one that came in a kit years ago from Hot Off The Press and the die is from Marianne Design Creatables. The card stock is ivory and gold pearlescent card, the gold being Moondust card from Southfields, the ivory was just some I had in my stash.

Thanks need to go to Joanna Sheen Ltd for posting this helpful video on YouTube as I am sure I would have struggled making the flowers without the clear instructions here.
