Wedding Bliss

Today's challenge is to create a project for a special couple for a wedding or anniversary. Please stop by the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to get all of the details so you can play along.

For my project, I utilized Cricut Craft Room to make two different sized labels from the Accent Essentials Cricut Cart. I sized one label at 5", copied and pasted it, then resized it a little bigger. The couple came from The Good Old Days Imagine cartridge. I printed the main image as well as just the couple so I could "pop" them up for added dimension.

I have a little trick for making coordinating patterned card stock that doesn't come with the cartridge. Find an image with a patterned background you like, separate the layers in CCR, delete all of the images except the patterned one, make it a little larger than the cut you need, then do a Print Only. Reinsert the card stock and do a Cut Only of the image you want. I did this for the bottom layer. The off white layer was embossed using the Sizzix Small Dots Texturz Plate.

I also added some "antiqued" white seam binding and a little tag with the perfect sentiment from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags set. Oh, and yes, can't forget a little Stickles:-)

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out FCCB new challenge today:-) Have a creative day!
