Engagement Card & Fun News!


Let's start off with the fun news: I've been chosen to be on Emma's design team at My Creative Time! I'm very excited to start playing with her brand new, adorable stamps! You can see and order them here.

Today's card is my entry to My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge. For this project, we were asked to use any older cartridge and to use a heart on it. The P.E. teacher at my school just got engaged, so I decided to make this card for her using the Sweethearts cartridge. Can you believe I got this cartridge at Michael's for $9.99 the other day? The sale runs through Sunday, so get over there quickly to see if there are any left!

The adorable couple on this card is cut out at 4 1/2". I didn't have any engagement sentiments out of all of my stamps, so I printed the sentiment from my computer. I then used the Center Point button on the Cricut to cut out the little label at 1 3/4". I cut it again at 2" for the shadow, since the actual shadow wasn't much bigger than the original.

Recipe:

5 1/2" x 11" Recollection Cardstock for the card base
5 1/4" x 5 1/4" Papertrey Ink True Black Cardstock
5" x 5" DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack
Core'dinations Cardstock
DCWV Metallic Stack
Color Box Cat's Eye Chalk Ink
Imaginisce Gems
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
