Goin’ To The Chapel

It all started with an iron.

WeddiingGiftMy husband and I were invited to a friend's wedding last weekend, and of course I waited until the day before the ceremony to shop for a wedding gift.

The only thing in stock that was on the bride's gift list was an iron. It's a nice iron, but sheesh!

So I bought a gift card to wrap up with the iron. But what to wrap it in?

I wheeled the Stems & Silhouettes jumbo wheel with black ink on plain kraft wrapping paper, colored in some of the flowers with a Pretty in Pink marker and added Pink Pirouette wide ribbon.


I topped the gift with a paper bow. These are so much fun to make and open up a whole world of possibilities using Stampin' Up!'s double-sided designer paper.

I'll post a bow tutorial for you this week.



For the matching card, I again used the Stems & Silhouettes wheel on Kraft cardstock layered onto black. The base card is Pirouette Pink. I embossed the heart from the Always stamp set in black on a piece of Pink Pirouette and on a piece of Pretty in Pink; then cut them out. They're mounted to the card with dimensionals.

The "Congrats" sentiment is from the Say It With Scallops set, this year's Ronald McDonald design. Stampin' Up! donates $2 from each one of these sets sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charities and has donated more than $700,000 to RMHC. (There's additional information about the RMHC program on the inside back cover of the current catalog.)

A piece of coordinating designer paper, some ribbon and a few brads complete the card.

This was such a fun project to make, and I know that the handmade nature will be well appreciated by the bride, Miriam. Congrats to Miriam and Josh…may your lives together be filled with love, peace and grace.
