Happy engagement

We were delighted – and quite surprised - to hear recently that a friend is to be married, so of course a card was in order. I can never understand why engagement and wedding cards are so frilly and girly – because 50 per cent of those involved are men. So this has a bit of subtle bling and some champagne – because surely champagne is always welcome.

You may have noticed that a lot of my cards recently use retiring colours. Yes, I’ve decided to use them up as much as possible but the weird thing is, most of these cards were made before the Colour Renovation announcement.

I’d realised that there were some colours I hardly ever used, so I decided to make more effort with them. And guess what? All of those colours are on the retiring list! So it seems I am a typical SU customer and do generally stick to the most popular colours which, of course, are surviving the Renovation.

  1. This is a great "clean and simple" card. I completely agree with you about the frilly flowery stuff on most wedding, engagement, and anniversary cards.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
