Red and white Engagment card

 **Please do not link/share my photos or posts without prior permission from me** 

Here is a red and white only monochromatic card for a couple who got engaged on Sunday...My friend wanted to gift something it to them with some Monograms on the hearts...it had to be red and white...and it had to be ornate. The sentiments and poem are on the inside...one of my favorite poems by Kahlil Gibran..

And after I made this card...Saumya pointed out that there was no stamping on the card...eeekss!! who thought I would make a non stamping card....but its something new..and I had fun making this...made me realize that I need more punches.....do I ever not need something?

 Loved putting all the elements together....the hearts, the flourishes...the punched flowers, borders...
Embossing folders...

I do think the ribbon looks out of place...it still bugs me that this isn't perfect...but then I beat myself up over every tiny detail...and by everyone's post on my birthday hop...I seem to have put a fear of perfection into the hearts of everyone., that I will not like what you made...( I never look for flaws when things are made with love...) Girls...I'm only hard on myself...never you...please don't be sooo scared of my perfectionism...In my daily life I'm a slob....I am messy...I love clutter...and hate cleaning up....but my crafting is one place I am not a slob...

So here is the card in all its glory....I do think it looks grand on the whole...

CS- 300 gsm watercolor paper Fabriano (now called Brustro)
Red CS - local.
Embossing folder- Daisy and Swirl (itsy bitsy) and Dots (provocraft)
Punches - MS Blossom eyelet (crafter's corner), MS Deco Shells, small flowers and swirl (jef punches)
Blings and pearls - adhesive stickers.
Dies - MFT flourish and spellbinders flourish
Alphabets - Baby face die from provocraft..itsy bitsy glitter paper

Entering it into the Crafter's Corner Challenge - Celebration with flowers
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Just add pearls

Here is the poem that I added on the inside. (I did a bit of editing..took off some lines from the original)
You were born to be together &
together you shall be for evermore.

Stand together yet not too near together
for the pillars of temple stand apart

Love one another
& let it rather be a moving sea
between the shores of your souls.

Sing & Dance & be joyous.
But let each one of you be alone.
Just as the strings of harp are alone 
Though they quiver with the same music.

  4. Tejal...your red and white card is beautiful! I love your design. The delicate red scallop/shell border really stands out against the white embossed background.
