Two of our friends recently announced their engagement. To celebrate this exciting news, I created these little DIY engagement cards. First up is a “Bride” greeting featuring this silhouette design.
I layered the graphic element on a fushcia background and edged the panel with pink glitter for extra sparkle. To complete the look, I added rhinestone and paper heart embellishments.
Tip: To cut very detailed graphic elements that have thin lines, make sure your cutting mat is relatively new and very sticky! *I might know from experience that the paper will tear very easily if using an older mat!*
I paired the Bride card with a fun engagement box using this template from Sarah Bailey available in the Silhouette Store for immediate download. A few additions to this DIY card to make it sparkle:
- rhinestones on the ring
- a die-cut of the word “love” on the base box
- punched hearts
- a foam sticker behind the diamond element to create dimensionality
I love how these DIY engagement cards turned out! I packaged them in the same envelope for the couple.
Congrats, Eddie and Vanessa!
