Creation Station Blog Hop Celebrations of the Heart

I had so much fun creating for this theme!

When I started, I thought I was making a wedding card.

By the time I finished, I decided my creation makes a perfect non-traditional wedding invitation.

For my base, I used Berry Burst cardstock.

Then, I added a layer of Very Vanilla stamped with the floral image from Floral Statements.

Over that, I placed a strip of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding.

Next, is the focal layer.

I stamped it with images from Perennial Birthday.

For the sentiment, I used Love You Still and finished with a Tutti Frutti Sequin.

Inside, I stamped another cluster of images from Perennial Birthday.

And then,

I made a coordinating envelope.

Anybody would be excited to see what is inside!

Project 2 – Escort Cards

Since I was working with a wedding theme, I decided to create some

escort cards to go along with my invitation.

First, I cut the Very Vanilla pieces with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Then, I used Perennial Birthday to decorate.

Tip: Place the pieces next to each other so that you get the benefit of overlapping edge stamping.

These will make a beautiful escort card board!

And, they’re right on trend, using a visually appealing shape and bold colors!

Project 3 – Wedding Tissue Box

Finally, is this wedding tissue box.

It’s not my original idea — I saw a wedding tissue box on Pinterest.

This is my version.

I used a Clear Tiny Treat Box and trimmed the inside tabs by 1/4″

before adding the tissue.

After adding my Berry Burst square to the top,

I cut a hole with the 1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.

Tip: Punching is hard so, make sure you don’t have one of the tabs also in the punch — ask me how I know 😉

Then, pull the tissue up.

For the body of the box, I used a Berry Burst belly band.

Then, I tied it with a piece of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding and offset the bow.

Finally, I added a Stitched Shapes circle with images from Perennial Birthday

and accented with a Tutti Frutti sequin.

    Gorgeous colour combination for your Wedding themed projects, Sara. The mini tissue box is so adorable, and I love how you have used the Perrenial Birthday stamp set without a Birthday in sight! D xox

      Thanks Kerstin! The colors are a little out the box but…my research says bold is in for weddings.
