Hi Stampers. I would like to say Congratulations to my friend Ashley and her new husband Brian on their recent wedding. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to be there in person – I saw pictures it was GORGEOUS!! But, I was sort of there in spirit, as she asked me to make these bookmarks for her guests.
These are the bookmarks she commissioned me to make for her wedding. She and Brian were thrilled with how they came out and that makes me very happy!
Each guest received a bookmark with their name on it and the date of the wedding. The colors represented which meal they had chosen. This helped the serving staff deliver the correct meal to each guest.
Ashley chose these colors to coordinate with the fall colors of the wedding. The names were printed onto Smokey Slate CS with my computer and printer using a font that was similar to their wedding invitations. They were then mounted onto Basic Black, Merry Merlot or Basic Gray (based on meal choice).
A swirl was added to each one using the retired Stampin’ Up! set called Everything Eleanor. This swirl was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using Copper stampin’ emboss powder.
The diecut leaf at the top of each bookmark was cut out of Copper foil paper using a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies. (After much trial and error with liquid glues, I settled on using the Adhesive Sheets. This did make them a little harder to cut through, but the precision base plate and a second run through the big shot made it work).
I finished them off by angling the ends and punching a heart hole and feeding 1/8″ silver ribbon through the hole to make a tassel. I will admit they didn’t want to stay put at first, but a simple glue dot solved my problem.
I was also blessed to be able to make their “save the date” wedding announcements. The found a photo they wanted to use, so I printed that onto Whisper White CS and mounted it on Cherry Cobbler CS. The announcement itself was printed onto vellum. Two holes were punched in the top of all three layers and a ribbon was run through to attach the vellum and give it a finished look.
If you have an event coming up that could use a personal handmade touch, I’d love to help. I can either assist you in designing what you need and help you purchase the needed supplies or give you a quote on my making them for you.
These are the supplies I used:
