Our niece Anita texted us from the Olympic Stadium to say 'I'm engaged!' Her fiance Peter had got down on one knee and proposed! He had previously called her Dad in Australia to ask his permission. How beautifully old-fashioned and traditional is that? What a romantic Pete is! Well, since it had been a while coming I thought I'd better make them a card, and found the ideal cut, this cute ring box complete with a blingtastic ring! I cut the ring box twice, once in red cardstock and once in gold mirri (with blackout feature enabled) I passed the red cut through a Xyron machine then added red flock powder to give a velvet look to the box. The flocked portion was adhered to the mirri portion with PVA glue. The ring was cut from gold mirri and white glittercard for the diamond.
The card base is a standard C5 card, and the paper is white and gold embossed paper from my stash. The ring box was adhered to a shaped panel in the centre of the card. The panel was trimmed with narrow sheer ribbon and a rose. 'Anita & Peter' was cut from gold mirri and adhered flat above the ring box. Four red heart-shaped pearls complete the card.
Carts used:
Ring box- Sweethearts
Shaped panel- Lacy Labels
Anita & Peter- Lyrical Letters (jumbo font)
Thanks for dropping by!
