Northern Lights Engagement Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week.

I am sharing the engagement card I made for our daughter and her fiancé. I knew when the proposal happened under the Northern Lights what sort of card I wanted to make. I remembered a card that Sue Wilson made a while ago so I went back to her blog to check out the instructions.

I wanted my card to reflect the conditions when we saw the lights in Iceland so there had to be snow.


I started with a white piece of card for the background and lots of Distress ink in various colours later this is what I achieved. The trees were cut in black with the Sue Wilson Winter trees dies I used all the sizes. I added the snow with CS White PVA glue and I sprinkled a fine glitter over the glue. I cut the frame with the Double Pierced Rectangles dies. I do use these a lot. 


I used two different word sets for the sentiment. 


This is one of our daughter's fiancé's photographs from that special night. Unfortunately his tripod broke before our last stop where the lights were more spectacular.    


It is fine to share this card now the happy couple received it yesterday. 

I hope that the rest of the week is good for you. 


Take care.

Hugs Jackie
