Wedding Day


It's our good friends' Jay and Elizabeth's wedding day! We are so excited to share in their day by attending their wedding today. Now I do have a confession to make to you about the wedding cards I make. I make the same style wedding card for EVERY wedding I go to! You see, I rarely find wedding stamps I like, which was how my template for this card erupted. I like it. It's simple, easy, you can add more style or detail to the card if you'd like, and you can even make it trendy with sashes or pops of color! So this is the wedding card. :) THE wedding card.

I shopped for their gift off of their registry. I knew exactly what to choose when I saw that they had registered for a "cupcake pan"! :) I bought an inexpensive 12-pack of washcloths, rolled them to make them look like cupcakes, and pinned these red-wrapped Lindt chocolates to the centers to be the cherries on top! It turned out cute, I think! Of course included with this pan are some of their oven mitts, some fun cupcake liners and SPRINKLES!!


Hope you have a wonderful day! Don't forget to place your $35 or more order at Limelight Papercrafts to receive a FREE jar of Shimmerz (your choice!). And please play along with our Sketch and Product Challenge...you could win some free TULLE!
