This final post is the cake I created for any cards brought to the wedding. I created a slot in the lid of the top tier so the cards could be dropped in and they slid down to stack up in the middle tier. The roses were created using the table die setting die cut run through the big shot. The roses are Concord Crush, Black and Silver. I used Old Olive to create the leaves. I adhered the roses using a hot glue gun. I again used the Shimmery White cardstock to create the scallop around each layer. Pearls were added to the scallop edge and Sophia found a really neat strand of rhinestones that I glued on, the effect was simple, but what a difference it made on the overall project. The cake idea was found on Roxy's blog by the mother of the bride and I CASED it from there.

This is the wedding program I created for the wedding of my friends daugter. As I mentioned in a post a few days ago all items made for the wedding were a collaboration. It was created very similarly to the invitation for the rehearsal dinner. The paper is Shimmery White, embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder, silver ink and basic gray satin ribbon.

I am going to digress from stamping and brag about my daughter. Emma is an amazing girl who lives for cheer. The picture posted here is from a competition in Las Vegas during December 2011. Emma is an amazing jumper, as she says "it is her thing" and she is very proud of how she has perfected jumping. I as her proud mom am very proud of her composure and confidence while performing. This picture was snapped by a team mom, who while a professional, puts the venue photographers to shame, in my opinion.

Back in September of 2011 I got a phone call from a very nice lady asking if I did anything for weddings. I, of course, jumped at the chance to work on invitations to the rehearsal dinner, as well as party favors for the guests. I guess I did okay because then I was decorating the guest book, making wedding programs and creating a box for any cards brought by wedding guests. Over the course of the next few days I will show off pictures of the items we created. I say "we" because I may have created a prototype; but the mother of the bride, now a dear friend, and I collaborated on the final products together. Today I will show you the invitations and favors for the rehearsal dinner. The final result is simple and elegant.n The favor was created using Box #2, scallop punch to create the window, a little sparkle shred and hershey kisses, tied with a bow and a tag that says "Thank You". The saying was embossed with silver embossing powder. The card was created using Shimmery White paper, embossed using the Elegant Lines embossing folder, add a few pearls and using silver embossing powder stamped "Your Invited". I think they came out lovely and elegant.
