Engagement Birds

A friend at work asked me to make an engagement card for her son and future daughter-in-law.  I had originally planned to make a card similiar to the medallion card I made for the VSN Olympics but I realized that I didn't have a nice envelope that large.  So, on to the next thought. 

The only stamping on this is on the inside (see below).  The base is Very Vanilla with a Finial Press embossed panel of Kraft.  The heart is in Very Vanilla and embossed with the scalloped heart embosslit.  The two birds are punched with the two-step bird punch in shimmery white and the wings and birds are popped up on dimensionals.  The ribbon is Old Olive satin and I used a stickpin, pearls and beads from the pretties kit with a Very Vanilla taffeta bow.

The inside is stamped in Old Olive with a sentiment from In My Thoughts.  The panel was cut using the Top Note Die and then embossed with the flowers. (I stuck it down better after the picture, trust me!)

She loved it and I hope the couple will too!


  1. WOW this is so elegant -- great engagement card!!

  2. I really like the "simplicity" of this card. You know the elegant chic look (If that made sense)


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
