Congratulations with Hearts a Flutter

I was so excited to hear that a couple of my best friends have finally got engaged. I say finally as they were together before my now husband and I even went on our first date, and we have been married for two and a half years! Special congratulations were definitely in order, so I reached for the lovely Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching framelits…

The combination of Basic Gray and Pool Party is fast becoming a favourite of mine. In fact, the combination of shades of grey with any colour may become a bit of a theme. Let's just say I can't wait until I can start using the new Stampin' Up! colour Smoky Slate when we finally get my hands on it. Primrose Petals was also a perfect accent colour for the heart image. After all, what is an engagement card without a heart? I really hope they liked it.

Twist Fold Congratulations

I had been invited to the wedding of a work colleague this summer, but unfortunately we're going to be on holiday. I hadn't sent an engagement card, so thought that my reply was a good opportunity to congratulate them more formally! The twist fold card is particularly useful in that the pockets created by the folding mean that you can slot extras into the card. I think I might be making a lot of these at Christmas for the many gift cards I end up sending.

Twist Fold Congratulations

The sentiments in the Curly Cute set are my favourite at the moment, as they really make the sentiment the focus of the design. I can't believe that this is the first time I have used the Natural Composition Specialty DSP – I can't even use the excuse of not wanting to cut up 12"x12" sheets as I got some already cut down to 6"x6" as part of a paper share! Let's just say that what I have left will be used very quickly…
