Engagement Card

My cousin has just announced her engagement.  Some brilliant news to celebrate.  I just had to make a card and thought I would use shapes cut from my cameo.
Although the photo isn't very clear, its a cream card blank with a strip of brown card.  This is edged with gold peel offs.  The gold mirror card mat has been cut on the cameo as has the swirl, leaves and flowers.  These have been coloured using inks.  The forever friends bear is from a decoupage kit I had and I thought it suited the occasion.  The little sentiment has just been printed from my computer.  Hope you like it.

More Cameo Tags

Just a couple more little tags made in a similar way - using shapes cut from white card and inked up using distress inks.  I like these little spiral flowers.

I think this one is my favourite as I love the way the little flowers sit up.  It sets the whole tag off and looks so dimensional.  It makes it a wee bit different.

This one I thought would suit a Valentine's gift as it has the heart shape and pinky colours.  I really do like these little flowers.  I have a feeling they could be making a few appearances over the next wee while.

Cameo uses

I'm really starting to get the hang of my Cameo now.  I think for a while I was too cautious so now I've really started to try lots of different things and I have to say it's the best bit of kit I've purchased - no kidding.
I like making my own tags but now I don't even have to buy the blank ones, I can just cut them myself.

I cut the tag, heart, swirl and flower template with the cameo and using white card and then used my distress inks to colour.  The little flower was a spiral which I gently inked before rolling up and securing with some pva glue.  I hope you like them.  I'll have more to share tomorrow.
