Wow You're Engaged

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a card I created to congratulate a couple who had recently become engaged. I needed something in a hurry, and I knew I wanted to use the "Wow You're Engaged" image from Taylored Expressions, which I have had in my stash for some years now and finally got it out to turn into a card.

As you can see, I created an accordion card using one of Karen Burniston's older die sets when she was designing for Elizabeth Craft Designs. For this I used the Gift Card Accordion along with the coordinating Flourish Gift Frame die set. I kept this to a two page accordion.

On the right hand page, I added the "congrats" sentiment which is from Karen Burniston's current Word Set 8 - Congrats die set. I die cut the sentiment from gold and red cardstock and then layered the gold over the red, offsetting slightly.

To finish the card I added some gold glittered hearts using one of the heart dies from the new Love Charms die set. The smaller heart on the solid panels are from the Parcel Pop-up die set. 


Here is a look at my card from the back. Seeing it was only two pages, you have something to look at which ever side is facing you.

Beautiful engagement card - and two page accordions are my favourite!
