I’ve been busy this past weekend working on a honeymoon / travel themed bridal shower. Her colors are gray and merlot so I incorporated those colors into the themed shower. So far I have made the banner for the brides table using the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and some luggage tags using the same cartridge cut at 4″. I still have to make something to go on the blank spot in between the two words so I could use some input.
I also made a letter to the bride card set to give to her family and friends to write the bride a letter of sorts. These will go into a scrapbook as a present to her from her sister. I think this is such a sweet and thoughtful present from one sister to another. I’m very thankful that she asked me to help her create these cards and be a part of the planning. These projects were very simple to make and anyone can do this.
I found a bell with ribbon stamp from my Close to my Heart stamp collection called “The Happy Couple”. I stamped it with VersaMark ink pad and then stamped the image on the white daisy card stock. I then took a piece of merlot colored ribbon that I bought at Hobby Lobby and cut it about 5″ and wrapped the two ends to the back of the card and taped it down with regular scotch tape. Using my Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge, I cut out the shadow image called swirl at 7-1/2″ and used it for the background.
Once the letters are written by the guests, it is a surprise so we will get them out without the knowledge of the bride. Her sister will then glue the cards to the background shapes before putting them into her scrapbook to be decorated.
They are going to an exotic place on their honeymoon so I also made a little shower favor that you could fill with candy or some item(s) for the guests at the shower and sit one at each chair. See my gallery of pictures for more projects made by me and my Cricut.
Art Philosophy is a great cartridge for making party or event decorations. It has come in very handy for this project and I think she will be pleased. Please tell me what you think of my work and/or what ideas you have for my blank spot on the banner. If I use your idea, I will give you a free “M” sized stamp just for helping me out so please leave me a comment! I will look forward to hearing some really great ideas for me to use! The shower is in August so I’m running out of time!
