Project 272: Personalized engagement card


A great friend of ours just got engaged and we are so delighted. I wanted to make them a personalized card to celebrate and took the opportunity to play with one of my new favourite die sets: an alphabet set I bought with Claire at The Ink Pad in NYC.

I started with an X-Cut lopsided heart die, adding in the initials of the couple using the new dies. I love these dies because they work just as well in negative space as they do with the cut out.I lined the left hand side of the letters with gold glitter glue to make it stand out more.

I didn't want anything too formal - I wanted it to feel light and fun and I think the greeting does that well instead of a traditional Congrats. The papers are from Studio Callico and they are so cheerful.

Finally I topped it with a candy that matched the turquoise paper.

Amazingly, I did this without my ATG as it broke this weekend. I am not coping well with this so if anyone has tips on how to fix it when the trigger stops releasing the tape, please share!!

  1. Oh I love this Jessie.. it's such a clever design… I really like how you've alternated the colours and patterns… it's a simple layout but so striking and pretty! :-))
    hope you can get your ATG fixed soon... it's annoying when it's something that you rely on for all your crafting.
    Have a good day!
    Big hugs, Sue B xx
