Something New!

Sorry I have been missing.  We have something new in the family!  A new member, but NOT a baby.  LOL

We have a new Mr. & Mrs.!!  My step-son married the love of his life on Friday.
Yes, it was cold!  14 degrees.

It was a beautiful wedding.  I helped the new Mrs. make her invitations and RSVP cards over the past year. 

I also did some (60+) favor boxes for the shower as well as the wedding.  Here are the shower favor boxes.

Here is the card I made for them.
I used the Martha Stewart hearts punch around the page, Snowflake embossing folder, Spellbinders classic hearts (which I glittered), satin ribbon, and sticky pearl embellishments.  The wedding colors were blue and yellow and they had a snowflake theme. 

To make the hearts, I did not use the Spellbinders in the normal way.  I drew around both edges on white card stock twice, overlapping them to entwine them.  Then I cut them out with my craft knife.  With the addition of some glue and glitter, I then ran them through my Cuttlebug between layers of wax paper to set the glitter into the glue.

I think it came together almost as well as this lovely couple did.

Congratulations to Cass & Casey.  I know you were meant for each other and your love will only grow stronger day by day.
