It's A Wrap Bridal Shower

I went to a Bridal Shower/Spa Day last weekend. It was heavenly! I thought a great gift for the bride-to-be would be a little continuation in pampering. I filled a Longaberger Basket with soft slippers, slipper socks, a pedicure kit, spa cap, a jazz CD, candles and a gift certificate for See's chocolates. The only thing I didn't include was the "Do Not Disturb" sign for the bathroom door!

Here is the tag I made using the It's A Wrap Occasions stamp set and Small heart glitter punch-outs.

A close up of how I added a bit of bridal *bling* to the tag.

I used Pool Party 3/8" ruffled ribbon and 5/8" Crochet Trim to tie the tag.

Since the card embellishments went past the edge of the card, I presented it in a clear bag that was folded in half. The ribbon was neatly tucked around the back.

I used White Craft Ink and White Stampin' Emboss powder for the wedding dress stamp from Love & Laughter. I love this stamp set. It is going to be used a lot, I can tell!

I didn't want to neglect the inside of the card, so I used one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits to die cut around my sentiment. I punched out the hearts (stamped in Island Indigo onto Pool Party card stock) from Love & Laughter to each side.

To gather the ends of the 5/8" Whisper White organza ribbon, I made my own flower/brad. I used Floral Fusion die in the big shot to die cut a Whisper White small and a Pool Party (Patterns DSP) medium flower. In the center I used a (retired) brad from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The sentiment "forever" is a Fabulous Phrases stamp inked in Pool Party and die cut with one of the Bitty Banners Framelits.

I hope you were inspired by my bridal shower project. Please leave your comments as I love to read each one.
