Wedding Memories Shadowbox

While I am a avid card maker, I believe that any craft is craft therapy.  A chance to use my imagination and create is always welcome and helps keep me sane.  Something else I always really enjoy is giving things away to others.  This time it is a gift to some friends who just got married in October.

I started by printing the background DSP from MDS.  I also printed the title and sentiment from MDS onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  The color choices were done according to the original wedding colors.  Once I had all the elements together I started to assemble.

I used the Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment and a mat.  Then I cut the title to make a banner.

The twine was purchased at a local hardware store.  During the ceremony they did a hand-fastening with twine that was very similar to this, so I thought it would be a nice addition to the box that would evoke fond memories.  The photos are of the bride's actual dress and the location that they got married.

I thought that a few hearts would be a nice clean addition, and I embossed them with the Square Lattice Folder to give them texture.

Overall, I really like the way that it turned out.  I hope they do too!
