Wedding Shower Gift

Tonight I attend a Bridal Shower for a family friend. They are getting married in Los Cabos, Mexico this April. I decided to make this container and fill it with $1 U.S bills. We usually give a gift like this at the wedding but because we are not going on this destination wedding I thought it would be nice to give it to her at the Shower. 

I bought the cylinder tube at my local scrapbook store. I wrapped it in an old wedding paper line from Cloud Nine Design. The ribbon around the edge of the tube was from my stash of ribbon. I cut a circle with my cricut from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the Bella and Fella Wedding image onto it. I also cut a scalloped circle with my cricut from some Grey Bazzil Bling paper. The sentiment is from a old Stampin' Up set (sorry I can't remember the name right now). I coloured Bella and her Fella with Stampin' Up markers. Her dress and veil are covered in Dazzling Diamonds.

For this card I started with a 4 x 6 black card base and the card sketch from this weeks Get Sketchy challenge. The stripped pattern paper is from the same Cloud Nine Wedding Line as the one I used on the tube. I wanted to use my new stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs. I stamped the image onto some Whisper White cardstock and coloured them in with my copics. The sentiment makes me laugh because a Scrapping Friend of mine is obsessed with puns. She loves to use them and giggles at them while she puts them together. This one is for you Snappy Scraps. The sentiment is similar to the one that came with the image but I changed the words a bit to fit my card and printed it off my computer. I then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the two sheep in the middle. I cut the image out with my nestabilities and cut out a matching black scalloped circle too. I then matted the other pattern paper with a black border punched with the mini scalloped border punch from EK Success. My sentiment is a piece of ribbon from my stash also mounted on a strip of black cardstock. I finished it off with some black organza  ribbon tied into a small bow.

The sentiment is printed on my computer onto some Whisper White Cardstock. I used the same stripped paper as the front on the inside of the card. I also used the same scalloped border punch on a small strip of black paper. I then stamped a small bride and groom with Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder.

Copic Markers: B000, C1, YR20, E44, R20
