Engagement Party Invitations

Ok so I am so excited about these cards!  They turned out absolutely adorable.

  • 2 sheets 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cardstock (I used Elegant Eggplant and Whsiper White)
  • 3 x 4 3/4 cardstock (Elegant Eggplant)
  • Dazzling Diamonds
  • Computer generated Sentiment
  • Dimensionals
  • Xyron Create a Sticker
  • 5" 5/8 ribbon
So I took the top piece (elegant eggplant) and 3 1/2 in cut between 3/4 & 4 3/4 on both sides then do a 90 degree turn and slide it in to 4 3/4 and cut between the two cuts - this is the bottom).  Starting with the bottom score at 1 1/4, 3 & 4 3/4.  Fold your score lines.  I find it best to fold them and then fold them back slightly so it lays flat.  The 3" score line will be a mountain and the other two will be valleys. 

Line up the top and bottom pieces and punch a half circle at the top near the 4 3/4 scoreline.

Adhere the 3 x 4 3/4 piece of cardstock to bottom of the section you cut (it should be about 1/2 an inch).  Now adhere the top and bottom pieces nust on the sides and the bottom on the very edge.

Adhere the ring and box to the front and the sentiment above that.  I also then adhered a photo to the top part of the tag.
