Wedding Gift

So, are you sick of wedding projects yet? I know I am! Ha! :) I have one more wedding themed project to show you though. This one is the wedding shower gift for the wedding we are going to this weekend. I made a set of simple thank you cards in the wedding colors and stamps that I used to make the invitations. Then I made a matching gift bag to hold the cards.

For the cards, I started with a Sahara Sand base and layered on a Very Vanilla embossed piece of cardstock. I used the Swirls embossing folder and the CuttleBug. Then the center piece is Baroque Motifs stamped in Mellow Moss and Soft Sky. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and has been stamped in Baja Breeze. I had to make 30 of these, so I kept them very simple.




This is how they look bundled together with the envelopes. I just tied them with a piece of Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon and added a hat pin and pearls. I think it makes them look a little more elegant. Hopefully they will stay together for the plane ride! hummm...

This last photo is of the matching gift bag. I used the same cardstock colors and embellished with stamping, dry embossing, felt flowers, pearls, and ribbon.




Well, that's it! Thanks for stopping by. We leave tomorrow, so I wish you all a nice weekend. I'll be stopping by to visit you as soon as we return.
Be sure to stop by on Friday when we post a new challenge on STAMP SOMETHING!
Happy Stamping! :)
