Engagement cards

 I made these recently...just felt like making some engagement cards for my 
ever-handy "box."


 I was inspired by a card I saw on Docrafts...
and made my own version. 
I drew a hand shaped template and chalked round the edge
to get the hand-print shape, added a large gem and a little gold promarker -
for the ring - and a computer generated sentiment. 
Finished the edges with a bit of rounding on the corners.

I would like to add this into the following challenges...
CAS on Sunday - pastel pretties (ends 24th May)
The corrosive challenge - use a sentiment (ends may 26th May)
My craft spot - invitations and announcements (ends 22nd May)
Sarah Hurley challenge blog - shades of blue (ends 26th May)
Chalk n stock - use chalk (ends 31st May)


This is a dovecrafts paper that I found in my stash on a recent clear out.
It was not quite big enough of a piece, to cover a card, so was about to be resigned
to my "bits of paper box" when this card popped into my head!
I found loads of scraps I'd forgotten I had!  Lol...
I printed on a sentiment, added a thin (hand-tied-bow) ribbon,
and Bobs-your-uncle!   ;)

I would like to add this to the following challenges...
Hiding in my craft room challenge - use those scraps! (ends 17th May) HIMCR97
Pumpkin spice - flowers (ends 18th May)
Use your stuff - flowers (ends 20th May)
Shopping our stash - scrap attack (ends 21st May)

I love both of these, and your second card (for SOS) is a great use of a not-big-enough piece of pretty paper. LOVE that font, too!

Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!

It's very clever card. The soft color and subtle look of a hand are the perfect execution of engagement. This card must go to winning.
