Elegant Wishes

Hello

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It has been very spring-like here in Melbourne with sunshine interspersed with showers.

During the week, a colleague asked me to make an engagement card for her.  Given there were no specifications as such, I decided on something simple and elegant with a touch of bling.  My colour scheme is Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black with the off-white of Shimmer cardstock and the gorgeous black flocked paper from the Mocha Morning DSP. The top embossed panel was sprayed with champagne shimmer mist for extra sparkle, although it doesn't show on the photo.

I made the flower using petals from the new Blossom Petals punch, which have been sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink and shaped with the bone folder and attached to a base.   The centre is a rolled rose - you can create one yourself by cutting a spiral and rolling it up, but I have used the MFT rolled rose die because the scalloped petals look more realistic. The sentiment was done on the computer and I have printed it on Shimmer card and then die cut it with an MFT Greetings die. Some butterflies and bling finish it off.

I have decorated the inside very simply with some DSP and a strip of the tiny scallops from the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch.  Given it is so dimensional, I will make a box for it as well. I hope she likes it.
