No, they're not realllllly crazy, or if they are... then so was I, since I stamped all my wedding invites too. It's a wacky story that I sometimes share at workshops when I tell them about what a pathetic newbie I was way back in the day. Let's just say my very FIRST foray into stamping was pretty sad (hehehe). Maybe I'll be brave enough to share it with y'all someday!
Anyhow, here are 3 of the 4 projects we're doing at my Wedding Cards & Favours class tonight. The first is a sour cream container made of vellum and embossed in white with the Tres Chic background stamp, complete with a tafetta ribbon and small stamped tag. These favours are excellent to create to fill with rice (to tear open and sprinkle on the newlyweds) or else to fill with such as potpourri, wildflower seeds, little bonbons... you name it! They're also amazingly easy and super inexpensive to create.
Next is a card using She's All That from the Occasions mini catalogue, with the bride image as its focal point. The Tres Chic background was VersaMarked in the background and I used a variety of the flowers & rhinestone brads. Add a judicious amount of glitter, and you have a perfect card to use for a wedding shower invitation, save the date, wedding gift card, whatever you like.
Here is another way to help customize your table settings using the wedding colours, either at a sit down dinner or throw in some cutlery as well for a shower -- create a napkin holder using our Designer Series papers! Super easy, and the sky's the limit on the colour scheme. Elegant, traditional, whimsical, funky ... you pick!
Don't forget about our personalized stamps, for you can get one with the bride
and grooms names and wedding date made up. It would be a nice thing to incorporate in the favours -- and someone could buy them a new address stamp for the "Mr
& Mrs" from the wish list!
