Engagement Again

This is the second Engagement card I've made this weekend as one of my cousins got Engaged last week. This is also for the Incy Wincy challenge which asks:

Faux It Up!

Although you can just about see it if you look close enough, I've added a faux running stitch with a black fineliner around the edge of the card and also the punched out heart.

The stamped heart uses a stamp that I got ages ago as a freebie in a magazine. The two little birdies have been stamped using two Hugs and Honey stamp sets (I bought a bargain pack in The Range on Friday with 3 of the acrylic stamp sets in, 2 different sized paper packs, die cuts and stickers all for just under £10!)

The items on the 'washing line' have been inked around the edges and the birdie one I've added tiny silver gel pen dots around the edge too. The embroidery thread is from my stash.

This was a really quick card to make and I think I may make more to add to my box as its good for any type of Wedding, Engagement or Valentines Day occasion!

  • All card: My stash
  • Stamps: Heart - my stash, Birdies - Hugs and Honey acrylic stamps
  • Everything else: My stash


  1. Gorgeous card Ruth, I love this design, you are so clever,
    big hugs,

  2. Love it! the washing line is so cute...might steal this idea sometime. ;) Glad to see the purchases are being used already... I tend to file things away & forget I have them! lol
