Love is in the Air

Valentines Day is around the corner and it is a perfect day to show consciously to your loved one that they are always thought about and cared for with love. And when the gifts you shower them with is Handmade , it makes the occasion all the more special.
This occasion is special for one of my friends in more than one way : its Valentines day of course and she is getting engaged. What better day to take vows which will last for a lifetime.

I made a “Heart Shaped Easel Card” for her which she wanted to give to her fiancé. Her requirements were minimal – Something heart shaped and simple, since this was her first gift for him. And this is what struck me.
I made this easel card with handmade paper and satin ribbon.
I decorated the base of the card with cream colored pearls and a sentiment which reads – You and Me.
The face of the card is decorated with satin ribbon plait and an embellishment with the silhouette of a guy proposing a girl. My husband added the golden outline to make it stand out! The embellishment is pasted using double sided stickers to give it some dimension. It is stuck upon handmade paper which is made more delicate using doilies. To make the gift more personal, I made space to keep a message mat which is again heart shaped.

My husband who is my partner in everything I make and do made this assignment even more charismatic by making a box of its own! We then decorated it with ribbon bows to make it look prettier.

 Wishing you a thousand smile :)
