Top Note wedding gift tags for the gals

These are the wedding gift tags that I made for my lovely bride so she can pop them on a special present she has for each of the people in her bridal party, and her mum!

I tried to pick colours that coordinated with the bridesmaid dresses, and so these colours were So Saffron, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla.

I used the SU Top Note Bigz Die with the Big Shot to cut out the gift tags.  Then I used the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots textured impression.  The labels were also made with the Big Shot and the Lots of Tags Sizzlet dies. 

I printed the girl’s names on vellum and then used mini glue dots to adhere the vellum to the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I covered the mini glue dots with lovely pearls.  Again, the ribbon is non-SU – I so wish I’d been able to buy some of the new ribbons we’ll get in the new catalogue – but it wasn’t to be 😦

I made the gift tags like little booklets – so there is a front, middle and back.  In the middle, you can see I stamped the damask from Friends 24-7 in So Saffron ink – doesn’t it look gorgeous?!  I really wanted to have a middle page for the bride and groom to have a place where they might want to write a special message that might be a real keepsake for the person they were giving the gift to.

And so the gift tags could slide apart, I held them together with a rhinestone brad, glammed up with a filigree designer brad.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Priceless Pretties

Do you ever make a card and wonder, I’m not really sure if I like it?  Well, this is that card for me.  I really love the Groovy Guava textured cardstock, my Priceless stamp set and the Pretties kit pearls and flower I’ve added (and touched the flower up with the coordinating colours with my blender pens and ink pads).  But I just am not sure I like the end product.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
