Here’s an engagement card I made this weekend while staying inside in the warm. I beaded the ring on wire before attaching it to the card.
The three squares beneath the ring are, from smallest to largest:
1. A thick, semi-transparent, fibrous paper with a grey leaf motif stitched by machine onto
2. A thick white paper with silver “Congratulations” printed all over it (you can just about see it on this photo if you look very carefully!) and
3. A plain black square 4mm larger than the second one.
It feels like a really long time since I made a card but I was really pleased with this one.
Update on 25th January 2013
Less than 24 hours after this card went live on my blog I had a request for another. I’ve also made an envelope to fit this one as the A5 brown manila envelope that I folded over and mailed the last one in would not really be acceptable to personally hand to someone. So, here it is…
It doesn’t match but the paper that I made the envelope from was the only stuff I had that was big enough! I could do with getting some A3 coloured paper really.
