Congratulations Carrie & John!

Hello Everyone
...
Today I am sharing an engagement card I made a little while ago for my dear friends Carrie and John who are to be married in May.
...
As Carrie's sister is overseas at the moment, I was honoured and delighted to be asked to go with Carrie to choose her wedding dress - I can't tell you about her dress, other than to say she will look simply beautiful!
...
OK - so here is the card I made. It is an enlarged and more fancy version of a rosebud card I had on my blog a couple of months ago.

I made the card using the stunning Bride speciality designer paper from Stampin' Up! This paper is more like a cardstock it is so thick and when you apply colour using a brayer or dauber it resists on the swirls, so you can turn in from bridal white to any colour you like.
I coloured the cardstock using Creamy Caramel ink and one of the punched hearts using Chocolate Chip ink.
....

Next I punched a circle in the front of the card and attached a piece of vellum cardstock stamped with the En Francais background stamp. The rose buds are made using the Two Step Bird Punch, (the bud is the wing of the bird).


....
Inside the card I used two tags stamped with the Mr & Mrs and Love sentiments from the Tiny Tags stamp set and punched using the matching punch. The envelope was stamped with Vintage Vogue.
...

Hope you like - I was very pleased with this card :)
