Magnolia-licious Design Team Wedding March Hop!!
Welcome to our monthly blog hop for the Magnolia-licious Design Team, sponsored by the generous and fabulous Diana! If you've arrived here after visiting my talented DT sistah Patti Jo, then you're on the right track! If not, you might want to head back to the very beginning at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. You don't want to miss any of the fabulous projects and there just might be some yummy candy along the way too! This month our theme is the Wedding March Hop!! So the projects are all to be wedding themed and contain a gift or package created using the fabulous Scor Pal. I really had a fun time making this one! For my project, I made the "wine tote". I think I made the handle a little wide to be able to get a bottle of wine into it, so I think I would put a couple champagne flutes inside instead. Wouldn't that be a wonderful wedding or anniversary gift? I think if I really wanted it to be for a bottle of wine, I would attach the handles with brads so it would swing down for clearance.
For the wine tote, I used Bazzill cardstock along with Best Creation DP. I used the #1 Vintage Tag Doohickey Die, but I wanted a shadow for it. So I just glued it onto some black cardstock and cut it out myself. I also used #18 Rose Leaf, the flourish die which I don't see in stock right now, and #411 Elegant Heart stamp (which I adore!!) Unfortunately, this set didn't photograph very well. I think it's actually much prettier in person.
For my card, I used #168 Loving Bridal Couple. Aren't they beautiful?! I used colors that I think would work for someone getting married for the second time, or even an anniversary (especially a silver anniversary). Along with the beautiful couple, I used #411 Elegant Heart Stamp again. Together Forever is a Verve stamp. The lace trim as well as the ros on the bag are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the black paper doily was cut using a Cheery Lynn Designs doily die. The bow (of course) was made using May Arts Silk Ribbon from Stamp and Create.
I colored the images using Copic markers (E50, 53 for her dress, and T series for his slacks) and then I cut them out and popped them up for dimension. They are put on a frame made using a Martha Stewart PATP set.
One of the fun things about a blog hop is blog candy!

Next stop on the hop is my friend and fabulously talented Barb! Thanks so much for joining in our blog hop today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
