In a Pinch Bride & Groom

Happy Saturday!

So, have you been to Lauren Meader's blog or on-line store lately? I love to create 3-D projects and she offers some great templates. The one I used for this project is called In a Pinch. Wouldn't these be awesome wedding favors?

First, the groom. I used The Paper Company basic cardstock in Charcoal Black. Isn't that little boutonniere cute? It's a small piece of tulle with a punched flower and eyelet. The heart was created with the SU embosslit Heart of Hearts and the large heart punch. The champagne glass is a Sizzix die and I put a bit of Stickles for bubbles. I used a MS border punch for the XOXO. The Thank You image on the tag is from a retired SU tag set. The little flowers on the heart were made with hand-held $1.00 punches using Pale Plum & So Saffron card stock.

Now the bride. The color of the card stock is Solar White, same make as the groom's. The flower borders were made with a MS punch. There is a layer of vellum on the bottom that I stamped and embossed flowers in white. I added lace around her heart. And, of course tulle for a veil. The tag is from another retired SU tag set. I used markers in Basic Black, Old Olive, Pale Plum, and So Saffron. The white tag is layered on a Pale Plum tag.

Here is a close up so you can (hopefully) see the embossed flowers on the vellum.

There is a contest going on now until Monday, March 8. There will be two prizes. First, a drawing to win a SCAL. What is that you might ask? It is the software needed to cut templates with a Cricuit. For the second prize, Lauren will be judging all the entires herself and choosing a winner to receive her entire April release. All you need to do is create something using anything from Lauren's store--template, digi paper, stamp, etc. You can find all the details and enter on Katie's blog.
I was thinking the In a Pinch would make nice favors/place settings for my niece's Sweet Sixteen party next year. Being able to cut the templates with the SCAL software would make the job a lot easier than cutting all of them by hand! I better give this some serious thought.
Thanks for stopping by.
