I can’t believe a year has gone by since I made this card and gift for my niece-to-be’s bridal shower. They already celebrated their 1st Anniversary! Anyway, I thought I might share it for inspiration.
I used some glittered pink paper (like this DCWV Glitter Cardstock ) for the card front and cut out the wedding dress from the Cricut Cartridge Sweethearts ( Cricut Sweethearts ). I layered this over some swirl patterned vellum that I’ve had for ages and added a few sparkly heart stickers (these are similar heart stickers). Then I attached it onto a blank card and put the pearly heart on the envelope to match. These DCWV cards & envelopes have a nice weight to them.
As part of the gift for the bride-to-be, I created a personalized decorative plate with their names, last initial and wedding date. I found the charger plate in Michael’s (it was a seasonal item there – here’s Charger Plates in colors on Amazon) and it was the perfect color for the wedding theme. I’ve ordered both Matte & Glossy Vinyl Sampler from Craft E Vinyl and have been very happy with the sampler packs. Being fairly new to vinyl projects at the time, I now look at it & wish the placement was different and that I added something to the rim. I do love that M monogram, though!
I still have most of the personalized gifts I received for my bridal shower and appreciate the time and effort put into them. The framed, cross-stitched name & wedding date with a pearl border and a hand painted slate of a bride & groom with our name & date are both proudly hung in our home.
What are some of the memorable handcrafted gifts you have received? I’d love to hear your comments!
