A Bridal Meteor Shower! Part 3

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m super excited to share the last and final part of the series with you. This one was totally inspired by a gift I once received from a friend/co-worker when I was a bride-to-be. She gifted me a gorgeous handcrafted box with an enclosed set of monogrammed thank you cards. I definitely had it in mind while I was creating.

First, I wanted to create a card to the bride that would eventually be signed by the bridal party. I wanted to keep with the theme when writing the sentiment so I used “infinite love”. I got to tell you, I went through A BUNCH of words and eventually started sounding like Buzz Lightyear talking to star command. Thankfully, I kept it simple.

Here’s what the graphic looked like using elements from the original invitation.

Next, I wanted to create a graphic that would be used for the thank you cards Dayle could potentially use to send out to her guests. This one was simple.

Next, I created 2 coordinating boxes that could be used to house all of the pieces to the project.

I will have a step-by-step tutorial on this next week! 

Here is what the boxes looked like. The little one holds the thank-you-favor-tags and the other’s to hold Dayle’s thank you cards to guests.BoxOutside1

 

I created a belly-band with a flower embellishment to wrap around the box (basically to help it stay closed). Then, I slid the “bride-to-be” card under the band.

Here’s a quick glace at the card after it was assembled. I gave it a blue and purple matting around the edge to coordinate with the overall scheme.

And here is the final project and all it’s components! It included a card to the bride, a stack of blank thank you cards, a stack of thank you tags, 2 gift boxes and a coordinating pen!

Overall, it was a super fun project to work. I hope you enjoyed following along and can’t wait to share additional projects with you! Congrats to Dayle Lang and best wishes to you on your upcoming wedding day!

Stay tuned for all new projects next week. Have a great weekend!
