I have made an engagement card using the Tatty Teddy range from Do Crafts. The couples name both starts with A, hence the "A's" at the bottom of the card!
So here it is.....
To make this card, I cut a piece of A4 to a 6x6" card blank. I cut the front of the card in half and rounded each corner with a corner punch. Using the backing papers provided in the Tatty Teddy Decoupage set, I cut two types to the right size and rounded each corner before attaching to the card blank with the double sided sticky tape. I used my XCut cutting set to cut 3 small circles in a pale yellow paper and pink shimmer card. I attached the pink circles on the left hand side of the card with 3D foam and the yellow one on the right with double sided sticky tape. I matted and layered the main T.T image on blue card stock (with the corners rounded) with 3D foam. I then attached this to the pink circles and decorated with 4 adhesive gems. I also cut a piece of white card stock to a smaller size, rounded the corners and attached on the inside of the card as a writing area.
To complete the card, I used a heart punch with blue card to cut 2 hearts. These were attached with 3d foam in the bottom right hand corner of the card and I topped them off with two "A" silver peel offs. I used micro dots to stick a pale blue gem in the centre of the hearts. I then used a "congratulations" peel off and silver hearts on each of the circles.
