Hello again!! :)
A super-quick post (I hope!!lol) to share an Engagement card I had to magic up in super-quick time last weekend and keep me going in my goal not to miss a Less Is More challenge!! :) This week’s challenge from Chrissie and Mandi was to make a Thank You or Congratulations card- which was a very happy coincidence for me as the night before I found I needed an Engagement card for the Saturday night!! Eek- even for a CAS card that’s not long for me to come up with an idea... tends to take my brain a while to get going!!lol So, I fell back on an old design that I first made a couple of years ago...
It’s extremely simple and needs little explaining beyond the ‘ingredients’:
- Tall Slim (8” x 3” or A5 folded in half lengthways) white card blank
- Anita’s wooden Heart stamp
- Versamark inkpad
- silver sparkle embossing powder
- a bit of spare card for the heart that’s raised in the middle
- Woodware ’Wedding Words’ clear stamp set for the greeting (I also embossed ‘On Your Engagement’ inside using the set)
...and that’s it!! :)
It’s so hard to get a good picture of virtually entirely white cards so apologies for these but you can just about see the glitter in the powder- it’s silver as opposed to the holographic you often get which I think is far more subtle!! :) I really like the extreme simplicity of this, especially that it has no colour- I’ve used the design for Anniversary and Valentine cards with different greetings as it’s so simple to make when I need a few cards to make more variety in my stock box!! :) I do prefer it with a more script-y font for the wording though, I think, but this was the only ‘congratulations’ I had to fit!!
Okay, I’ll stop wittering now and go have another rest!! Thank you so much to everyone who has left comments on my recent cards and I really am very sorry that I haven’t been managing to visit many of you, LIMettes and others, recently- I haven’t been able to spend very long online and haven’t had the energy to leave comments when I do get to look around but hopefully the enforced rest will start to help soon and I’ll be able to get back to visiting you all soon- I hope so as I'm really missing the inspiration of hopping around blogland!! I do hope, Chrissie and Mandi, that you don’t mind me still taking part with a card each week even though I sometimes can’t manage to visit many others despite my best efforts?! Thanks also to my newest followers- I will return your visits soon if I can find links to your blogs, and I hope you’ll continue to like what you see of my creations here!! :)
Well, that turned a short post into a long one again, didn’t it!! No hope for me!!lol Hope you’re all well and have a lovely weekend!! :)
