This card will be going to my nephew and his fiancee who just became engaged.
The main image is called Boofle - LOVE him - and was handcut from the Docrafts Designer Decoupage Sheet which has around 24 different designs and put together using the paper tole method (we call the layering paper tole where I live in Australia but it is called decoupage in the UK). I popped all the layers up with dimensionals.
Both the cream and pink designer papers are from one of my favourite ranges - Basic Grey Kissing Booth. I ran the cream paper through my Big Shot using the embossing folder from Cuttlebug's Love Language combo set twice because the paper was too wide for the embossing folder (fortunately this was one of the folders that I could match up the design) - and the pink paper using the Cuttlebug Jamara embossing folder (which is a large 5" x 7" folder) then sanded it lightly to add a few highlights. I love the texture that the Jamara folder added to the card. I added a strip of 1"/25mm wide cream satin ribbon underneath then attached this to my Kraft cardstock base. All the corners were punched with a Stampin' Up corner punch.
I stamped the sentiment onto the same cream designer paper using Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink then added some Kaisercraft Lippy Red rhinestones around the scalloped circle edge which was also diecut from the pink designer paper. The sentiment panel is up on dimensionals.
Lastly, I tied some May Arts pink button twine through a wooden button I found in my stash, added Fray Stop to the ends to stop the twine from unravelling, then glued the button on.
I think this card could double as a Valentine's Day card or for a Wedding Anniversary.
