Anything But A Card - PPA #4

I was so excited to see the Anything But A Card Challenge at PPA this week! Because any of you who know me at all know that I just finished putting together my son's wedding...and so much of it was "anything but a card". For those of you who don't know me, my son's wedding was the driving force behind my passion for card making. I decided right after the engagement that I wanted to MAKE the rehearsal dinner invitations. Well, I had no idea where to start...but one thing led to another and before I knew what had hit me I was addicted to stamping and card making. (That's the very short version of a long story!) One part of the story tho' does have to do with me rushing over to see the engaged couple with two sheets of card stock..."Which will it be, Kiwi Kiss or Old Olive?" As I was leaving my son looked at the bride-to-be and asked, "Did she just come over here to show you construction paper?" LOL Anyway, before all was said and done the wedding looked like something designed for a Stampin' Up photo shoot...and all done up in Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant!! The theme of the reception was grapes/wine, thus those two colors. Anyway, in addition to the rehearsal dinner invitations and two of these gorgeous boxes (one for cards & one for advice)...I also made coordinating wine tags, pew cones, and favor bags! (If you want to see more photos click here and here.)

Isn't it fun that once you start stamping you just can't stop!

The love and time you put into personalizing your son's wedding day is so special! I think my favorite projects were the pew cones and favor bags.

Thanks for playing at PPA!
