Son's Wedding Present


I finished making one of my son's wedding presents today. One thing to check off my list. the date is fast approaching. I am sure they have way too much on their plate to look at Mom's blog so I feel safe enough to post the pic! heehee
(Sorry about the reflection here....)
I love making these name frames for wedding gifts and I think Jake likes them too. He asked if I was going to make him one a while back. I think this is my favorite one that I have made so far.
Details, Details- Frame was purchased at WalMart. Chipboard letters are "Chip Chatter". Lots of Antique Brass Hodgepodge hardware. Most DPs are Basic Grey and Daisy D's. Only one stamp used....Antique Cracking. Date was computer generated. Various ribbons are wrapped around frame edge. Primas with brads and little key add final touches.
What do ya think?? I have one more of these to make to take to Kansas- a special 25th anniversary present. Lots to do before the wedding. I'll try not to be too scarce!
Happy hump day!

This is just beautiful. This seriously looks like something you would buy in one of those high end, up scale gift shops. You know the kind, where nothing is under $75. They will love it.

THAT IS SIMPLY STUNNING! I would LOVE if someone gifted me one of those. You could sell those! Job wel done, Angel!
