Bridal Favours

What a busy week, It has been manic at work and Peter has been quite poorly after his Knee replacement operation and to top it all my computer and internet access has been on the blink, anyway I think it is temporarily sorted although I think we perhaps need a new computer.

Last Christmas I made some crackers for friends at work and put little tubes of hand cream inside. Lovely Lisa a dance teacher saw them and asked if I would be able to make 50 of them as favours for her wedding and also two cards one for Father of the Bride and the other for Mother of the Bride below is the end result.
Lisa's colour scheme and theme is Pinky, silvery and glittery and Butterflies.
I used SU stamp sets Flight of the Butterfly, Vintage Vogue and Tiny Tags to stamp the crackers with Pretty in Pink ink and then glittered the butterflies and flowers with Dazzling Diamonds glitter
Lisa wanted the cards to stay on a similar theme as the crackers but with black and pink for her dad and white and pink for her mum.
I decided to make Shadow cards as they are just a little bit different from the norm.
The same stamp sets and inks have been used with the addition of Frames with a Flourish which I stamped around the computer generated text.
I used SU Specialty Papers Bride and Groom for the card itself these papers are really quite thick and work really well,.
I made a couple of boxes for them tied them with ribbon and there we have it, hope she likes them. Thanks for looking..

These are stunning, the bride must of been speechless when she saw them and I'm sure her parents will be as well. Brilliant idea using a cracker for the favour box.
