A vintage engagement

A friend of mine saw a stunning card (not mine) that I pinned on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago, and fell in love with it. She asked me to make one for her friend's engagement, so I decided to case it. You can see the original card here. Sadly I don't have a link to the original page.

So here is my take on that beauty...

I started by embossing the bottom half of a piece of Very Vanilla Core'Dinations using the sadly retired Pretty Print embossing folder. (hard to see in the photo but it's there!) I then stamped En Francais in Night Of Navy onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock before die cutting with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits and inking the edges.

The hearts were cut using Hearts Collection Framelits which I then scrunched before attaching to the doilies using an Antique Brad. I stamped Flowering Flourishes, added Linen Thread and my doily/heart topper. Oh I forgot to say, I distressed the edges of the Very Vanilla too.

As the card was a commission I added the personalisation by printing the sentiment from my lappy and punching using the Decorative Label.
