I can't tell you how chuffed I am at how this card turned out! I knew what I wanted it to look like but the end result is more than I could have hoped for. I tried cutting the ring box from Doodlebug velvet paper but Jiminy didn't like it and chewed it up & spat it out. What a mess!! So I cut the box from red card , cut the ring portion off it then glued & flocked it. I cut a blackout version in gold mirri (so that the gold would show through the cut- out in the box) and stuck them together. I added a mini heart brad to the side of the box. I cut the ring & sparkler from mirri & glitter card, decorated the ring with peel off borders then adhered it to the ring in the box. I embossed the large white panel with a Fiskars Texture plate & the Cuttlebug, matted it onto red & gold mirri then adhered it to the card front. I cut a strip of red mirri and puched out the edge with a Marta Stewart punch. I added a strip of Cuttlebugged gold mirri and red sheer heart printed ribbon with a layered flower. I cut the sentiments from red mirri shadowed with gold. The red hearts that I scattered over the card were waste from the border punching & also a small heart punch. I decorated the inside of the card with another punched border & hearts.
Ring box & sentiments- Sweethearts
'?'-All Mixed Up
Thanks for looking!
ps What I have for you tomorrow will make you go 'aaaahhhh!' in a 'how cute' kind of way!
