Creation Station Blog Hop Celebrations of the Heart

Creation Station blog hop celebrations of the heart - Perennial Birthday wedding invitation - from theartfulinker.com

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

    • Sara Levin February 13, 2018 at 7:51 pm

      Thank you Denita! They were so fun to make that it makes me sorry I’m not working on a wedding.

  • Kathy Kartak February 10, 2018 at 3:13 pm

    Love your card and box, gorgeous! I like your idea to stamp the envelope like that, tfs!

    • Sara Levin February 5, 2018 at 7:49 am

      Thank you Linda! I know! As soon as I saw the envelope, I thought I need to do that more often.

    Oh what really nice wedding projects! I love the colour combination and your style! Kind regards, Kerstin

    • Sara Levin February 4, 2018 at 2:40 pm

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

  • Julie Beltramo February 4, 2018 at 12:20 pm

    Love this set of projects – especially because my daughter is getting married next month! I love your little tissue box idea – Adorable! It would make a super cute ‘get well’ giftie also!

    • Sara Levin February 4, 2018 at 12:53 pm

      Congratulations on your daugther’s upcoming wedding! I bet you are busy creating. I like your idea to use the mini tissue boxes as a get well “pick me up”! I’m all about multipurpose ideas.

  • melanieheyl February 4, 2018 at 11:20 am

    Great projects. Especially the little box is very nice

    • Sara Levin February 4, 2018 at 11:37 am

      Thanks Melanie! I think we’ll see a lot of those little tissue boxes at upcoming weddings.

  • Sara Nell Langland February 4, 2018 at 9:36 am

    Sara, I love these! As soon as I saw the colors you used, I was smiling! Love your tip, too–I will remember it for future projects.

    • Sara Levin February 4, 2018 at 9:46 am

      Thanks Sara! I’ll look forward to seeing your creations using that tip.
