Engagement Paper cut
Tell your proposal story through one of my personalised engagement paper cut love hearts. Each one is hand drawn and hand cut, and unique to your story of the bended knee (or not!). Cut on 120 gsm hammered paper for a little 3D pop!
An engagement ring sparkles between the names of the happy couple and above the date whilst a papercut scene of you at the engagement location is drawn with my scalpel in the main body of the loveheart.
For me to be able to create this masterpiece I need a full length image of the couple and additional details of the engagement-ie specific places or locations, the more of the story that I know, the more of the story I can tell with my scalpel.
Note that due to the size of the piece I am unable to add significant facial detail apart from eyes and a smile but I will try my best to make the portrait look like a resemblance!
My process is simple in that I sketch a rough layout and send it to you within ten days. As soon as I have your approval, I lovingly cut away the remaining 95 % of the details with my scalpel to create a beautiful keepsake of that special moment. I have paper cut everything from a couple who got engaged walking in the Welsh Valleys, to a couple dancing under clementine trees in Italy.
To recap, the details I need to complete the love heart are;
Your Email Address so I can relay details and gain photographs etc
Date of Engagement
Location/Engagement story (I love these, please feel free to be specific!)

Please note the only things I am not allowed to paper cut is branded items, logos, specific characters due to copyright, however please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries around this. Please also note the price only includes one draft layout drawing, however I do not charge for any minor amendments.
With regards to colour, I always recommend a contrast between a dark and alight to really highlight the details of your paper cut, and for the best results are light on dark. Please note the pearl and special finish papers are only suitable for the paper cut and not a background.
Each paper cut is covered by a sheet of thick foam board and packaged in a plastic wallet and double hardback document envelope so that it is completely protected during transit.I send this paper cut by Royal Mail First Class Signed For so that it is fully insured to its value, please note your package will require a signature upon delivery.
Due to the delicate nature of paper cutting, there may be some small discrepancies in the piece however this will not affect the piece aesthetically as I am a perfectionist. I will use the spelling provided to me and cannot beheld responsible if this is wrong so please do confirm that it is correct upon ordering
