Monogrammed Bridesmaid Cards for Exploring Cricut!

Hello everyone and welcome to my little crafting blog! Today is my day to post for Exploring Cricut and  I am sharing some projects I created for a niece's wedding.

The bride's colors were a vibrant purple, orange, a bit of gold and brown with a Rustic Spanish Theme.
 She wanted to give  her bridesmaids some goodies and these bags were fairly easy to put together. (of course it helps to have a great friend who is so talented when it comes to sewing!)
I created the cards using PTI Cardstock in Vintage Cream for the base and sized at 4x4". I created a little banner for the "thank you" sentiment and used some gold embossing powder for a more elegant look. I also added some tiny pearls and finished with some vintage cream  PTI ribbon.
I used the Storybook Cartridge for the classic font. I seem to be drawn to this one over and over. The letters were cut at 2" and embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder.
I thought a border would add a nice touch and used my Fiskars Treading Water punch  (another oldie but goodie)

 The next project were the favors. The bride ordered these authentic Spanish tiles and she wanted satin ribbon around the edges and a little tag with sentiment to display them.
I made the little tags using the TBBM cartridge and cut them at 1". I stamped a sentiment, added some button twine and inked the edges for a rustic look. She displayed them on the napkins at each place setting. Really stunning effect.

The next couple of projects were the escort cards, table signs and seating chart.
Thought it would be fun to share...
