Showered Love Engagement

Hello friends!  I hope that you and your loved ones are healthy.  I also hope that you are having some inspirational crafty fun during this time.  Crafting is a great way to create and send some smiles to someone as well!  Let’s keep those smiles going!! 

Today I have another card that I made for the same son that had his birthday from my last post.  He was also recently engaged and I’m so happy for them both!  Here’s the card that I sent to them:

I had seen this image came out from Lilly of the Valley last month and just fell in love with it!  I knew it would be perfect to use for this occasion!  It’s called Showered With Love and I’ve printed it out, colored with Copic markers and then cut it out using the Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles Die set and then layered it over some light blue card stock.

I popped up this image panel with craft foam over a piece of white cardstock that was die cut from a Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle die and then layered over a piece of dark brown card stock.  I then attached these layers over another piece of light blue cardstock with the same Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles Die set.

Before attaching the image layer onto the light blue panel, I took a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words and white heat embossed it over a dark brown strip.  I also added some ribbon and lace around the light blue card front panel before attaching the popped up image panel.  Lastly, I’ve added some Nuvo rhinestone water dropplets.

Here’s a closer look at the coloring I’ve done on this couple.  I’ve tried to keep the hair color likeness to the real life individuals.   Hard to see in the photo of course, but I’ve covered the hearts with a glitter pen for shimmer and the trim on the umbrella as well as the center of the heart on the umbrella and part of the handle were colored in with a clear glitter pen which also gives a bit more shimmer to it.

For the inside of the card, I’ve added a computer generated sentiment that said “Congratulations!  Wishing you a love together that can outlast any type of weather.” and also created a pocket that held a gift card inside.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and have been inspired in some way!  Thanks so much for dropping in today!  I appeciate you being here with me!  See you soon!
