Anyhow, I do have some things to share with you. My brother-in-law (Dh's youngest brother) is getting married this weekend. I wanted to make them something nice as a wedding gift. So I chose to do this:
I know, I know, that doesn't exactly show you what it was that I did for them. But, in my defense, I can't show you. I am a member of the Blue Prints Design Team on ASB and this was a project for this weeks technique. So, if you want to see the finished project, you have to scoot on over to ASB and sign up for Blue Heaven.
But I can share with you the card that I made for them. It doesn't match the gift. The gift is for their kitchen so was done in their kitchen colors. I did the card in their wedding colors. Erin, my future Sister-In-Law chose Sugar Plum (I am assuming that is a light plum but I didn't know so I went with Perfect Plum and Pale Plum just to cover my basis) and what she called Sage. However when I got her wedding invitation tied with the "sage" ribbon she had chosen (exactly what I used on the card) the ribbon was more Mellow Moss. I swear, I have never met her and I had nothing to do with their color choices. LOL Funny enough though, she is like me in oh so many ways. Not only does she love purple and green like I do, but she is a red head as well and she acts a lot like me from what I am told. Heaven help BIL if she trully is like me though. LOL
O.k. so I promised the card, well, here you go:
I stamped the outside with "Wishing You" and the inside was stamped with "Happiness Always".
I used French Script, Wishing You, and Happy Harmony from SU. I used Perfect Plum ink and marker, Pale Plum Ink, and Mellow Moss Marker as well as Staz-On black ink. I used Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla Cardstock, and Hodge Podge peices and Ribbon. Oh yeah, and the photo corner punch. What do ya think! I like them!
