Wedding bells getting louder!

I’m frantically making wedding stationery at the moment for my brother’s wedding in less than two weeks. The invites have gone out (thankfully), the placecards are made (phew!) and now I’m working on the favours and the thank yous. This is the thank you card – I just have to make the rest now! I’ve folded the cards, stamped and stuck the inserts, stamped and cut out the flowers and cut all the pieces for the front. Just need to stamp “thank you” on them (I have two chances on each strip!) and then assemble.

As for the favours... don’t ask. Not going well at the moment.

On another topic, who’s going to the NEC this weekend? I’m going on Saturday and expect to see a few familiar faces!

Stamps: One of a Kind, Wonderful Words
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Paper: Bridesmaid Speciality Designer Series Paper (which is actually cardstock weight). Insert is good quality printer paper (still not as good to stamp on as SU Very Vanilla!)
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch
