Wedding Favors and Quick Cards

Hi Everyone!

Sorry to have been out of the blogosphere lately, but it is so very busy at work, with it being our prime season. Like they say, you have to make hay when the sun shines!

I was pretty lucky today, I had the help of my good friend Lisa in helping me put together some wedding faors for an upcoming wedding in September. I had all of the pieces cut, scored, and embossed, or made, and she helped me tape some of the favors together.

The theme of the wedding is chocolate and vanilla, and these top note boxes will adorn the plates filled with chocolates at a wedding I am designing in September for my good friends Tricia and Joe. I think they came out pretty nice. Only 60 more to go...

I have been getting into making favors for weddings and parties of many types. If you have a need, or know of someone who does, drop me a comment, or give me a call.

I ran out of glue dots, and as luck would have it they were on sale buy 2 get one free at AC Moore today. So I also used my birthday gift card for some clear stamps on sale for $5 each! Most are by Inkadinkadoo or Craft Studio.

The materials used in the cards I show are Bashful Blue cardstock, Chocolate Chip Cardstock, Very Vanilla cardstock all by Stampin Up!, Club Scrap ribbon from thier Academy collection, Stampin Up! Ink in various colors and blender pen. Also used the Swiss Dots Embossing folder by Cuttlebug on my Big Kick for the background and a Hero Arts flourish stamp stamped with Versamark for a Watermark background effect.

Hope you enjoy, and are having a great summer!
