When I saw this week’s CAS(E) this sketch, I had to take it literally.

The die for cutting a diamond is the one die in the Eclectic Layers set I had yet to use, and I needed an engagement card. The Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper provided the perfect background. Do you see the hearts in the constellations?

Diamond Engagement Card

I began by layering the Thick Whisper White card base with Basic Black. This made a nice contrast with the soft Petal Pink color of the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. Plus, I wanted to use these two colors for Mary’s challenge, “inspired by color.” Check out those shoes!

It was fun die cutting the diamond from the Silver Glimmer Paper, seeing it sparkle.

Rather than two more diamonds, I die cut two hearts. The larger one (Whisper White) is a favorite from the Sunshine Wishes die set. The smaller one (Petal Promenade DSP) is from a retired Stampin’ Up set. 

I stamped, “You’re Engaged,” from the Itty Bitty stamp set. The last detail was the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon across the front, before gluing everything together.

 

The sentiment inside is from the Better Together stamp set. 

Now, I’m ready with a card for the newly engaged couple. As always, I appreciate you stopping by my blog.  I hope you’ve been inspired.
