Double Ring Frame

 
We are all about our daughter's
upcoming wedding around here so a lot of my projects seem to be wedding related lately.
Here's an easy way to create a simple and romantic card using something almost
everyone has around the house.

Supplies:
White cardstock
Glacier White embossing powder
Versamark inkpad (or similar)
Michael Strong Rubber Stamps mini cloisonne heart
Two paper cups of different sizes
Scissors
White glue
Foam mounting tape or pop dots
Thin white ribbon

Steps:

Stamp and emboss two mini hearts and cut them out.
Use your scissors to cut off just the rolled tops
of two paper cups
to make two different size rings.
Carefully tie the two rings together with white ribbon.
Put glue on the back of each ring and place
them in the center of a frame on your card as show.
Place a weight (not too heavy) on top of the rings
until they have adhered to the card. Remove the
weight and tie the ribbon in a bow.
Add the two embossed hearts to the center of the
rings. Tape or glue one flat and the other one
layered on top
using some foam mounting tape.
Finish with Ice White pearl pen
Enjoy!

This is so elegant Mike - must try it out. Just need to find an excuse to hand it on - unless of course it works out as well as yours...
