Engagement card

Hi Everyone, I have been pro-craft-inating for over a week on an order for 2 engagement cards, you know when you are full of ideas, but when you put it together it doesn't look right, no matter what you do, well, that's what I have been like. Then this afternoon, I had a follower email from Vero and it clicked! I had been asked for modern and bright colours and here they were.

This is my card, I laid it out in PS and cut the sun ray out of a file by Wendy Bird Designs the heart was layered in PS and cut out by hand.

I added the sun ray template into PS and "clipped" a matching plain colour to it, then "clipped" 2 of the paint splatters to it as well, printed it all out and layered. I added the cut out image here , done on my Cricut.  A few transparent confetti and VoilĂ   - done in no time at all. phew! I'll show the other one at a later date. They are so completely different, but then so was the brief. The sentiment is as requested.  Lots of pink  Have a heart  Anything Goes - twist - Love  Anything Goes
