Congratulations on your engagement Lisa and Mike!

Hey all, hope you're all having a lovely week and enjoying the sunshine!

Today i have a card to share with you that i made for my cousin Mike, who proposed last week to his partner Lisa - and of course she said YES!!

So here is the engagement card that i made for them:

This type of card was demo'd to us by Fiona a Stampin' Up! colleague of mine. The card base is 'Very Vanilla' which has been folded over in half and then the front folded over again. I layered two different pieces of 'Everyday Enchantment DSP' on the card base.

I then ran some 'Poppy Parade' card through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Top Note Die', and then ran a piece of 'DSP' through as well - i trimmed off the edge to create a slightly smaller shape and mounted it to the 'Poppy Parade' 'Top Note' before sticking it to the cardbase.

Next up i punched two birds using the 'Two Step Bird Punch' from 'Very Vanilla' card, the wings from some coordinating 'DSP' and the branches from some 'Poppy Parade'. The cute little hearts were punched out using the 'Owl Punch' (I also placed three along the edge of the card too)

Here's a pic of the card open (in my lovely sunny garden!):

You may notice that i have placed a 'Very Vanilla' 'Top Note' in the centre, before stamping in 'Poppy Parade' ink a congratulations sentiment from the 'For My Family' stampset.
