I made this recently to congratulate two lovely people on their engagement.

I am in love with everything BasicGrey and couldn't resist the vintage / shabby chic look of this Capella, distressed around the edges and then inked and torn, matched with ivory lace, ribbon, pins and flowers.  The sentiment, which I printed out onto Letraset SAFMAT, is kept simple.

For those who've never used SAFMAT before, you simply run it through your printer (I use an Epson inkjet but have previously used it on a Hewlett Packard).  Allow it to dry thoroughly then cut it out and rub it on to your project.  It leaves a gentle matt effect, but looks great as it allows the background image to show through.  You can click on the photo above for a better view of the applied SAFMAT .

Creative Materials:
Cream cardstock - BasicGrey Capella paper - Lace - Ribbon - Pins - Flowers; Prima - Leaves; Stampin' Up punch - Sentiment printed onto Letraset Safmat - Inkpad; QuickQuotes
