If you need an engagement card for an engagement party, use the Shimmery White Cardstock, which is beautiful in itself, and the gorgeous Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Dies to make a Shimmery Heart Die Cut Engagement Card.
Here is how I made the card. The card base is Shimmery White Cardstock. The next layer is embossed with the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. To me, this looks like little hearts, but I guess they are meant to be flower petals! It makes it hard to remember the name because I think the folder should be named “heart-something”! But it is a beautiful embossing folder and will be great to use on many, many cards. The heart and little flowers are die cut with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits. It’s best to use the Precision Base Plate with the Big Shot since this is a more intricate die, and be sure to run it through twice, depending on your machine. And I also highly recommend that you have the Big Shot Die Brush to use to get the little pieces out of the die and the die cut. Then adhere the little flowers on to the heart. I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the heart and flowers. And for a little bling, Rhinestone Basic Jewels are always good! The “Congratulations” greeting is from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set.
This card doesn’t photograph well because of the subtle shimmer of the Shimmery White Cardstock and the dazzle from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper! In person, it looks very pretty and elegant. You wouldn’t even have to have the Falling Petals embossed background, the die cut heart is pretty enough by itself on a card. You could even color the glimmer paper with a little reinker and Aqua Painter or brush to add some lightly colored flowers on the heart. You can see this coloring technique that I did on some punched hearts on this card here on my blog.
They say June is the month for weddings, so maybe you need to start an engagement and wedding stack of cards! It’s always nice to have some extra cards on hand. When you make one card and like it, make a couple more of the same while you have the supplies out. You could also make this same card for other occasions, just by changing the greeting or leaving any greeting off. This Shimmery Heart Die Cut Engagement Card is well suited for an engagement card, wedding, birthdays, congratulations and many occasions.
