Wedding favours

Hello again - today's finished product is the next step in the Wedding stationery that I have been playing with for a while now.

This week I have completed 85 favours.

These have all been made with lovely Anna Marie kraft card.  Each favour is a 6" strip that has been scored several times to create a little pocket that holds a mini pack of love hearts - these are fab and as well as 'just married' on them have the couples name and a little message including the wedding date.

The card strips have been stamped with a now retired SU stamp from the confetti set and punched either end with the fantastic new Scalloped Tag Topper punch from Stampin' Up, I'm rather a fan of this.

The 2 scalloped ends are held together with a little tape but then a piece of string tied in the top - a reference to the original 'tying the knot' save the date cards that I made.

The front of each little favour is then decorated with a stamped piece of kraft card that has been punched with the SU curly label punch and a sentiment from the 'Teeny Tiny Sentiments' set that has been cut out with the ever useful SU word window punch.

This is a side shot with the sweeties housed safely inside!

Coffee challenge

After much crafting and no blogging I have re-appeared with a challenge card!

The current challenge over at Addicted to CAS is 'Coffee' so I have had a go.
This is my card:

I've used a new Stampin' Up embossing folder called Scallops Textured and punched a hole in this piece.  I have then sponged round the edge with the same Early Espresso ink I have used to stamp the image which is from last years sale-a-bration with SU called Patterned Occasions.

Finished with some matching bakers twine and mounted on a white card.

I might even come back tomorrow!
