My projects showcase just a few of the beautiful CutCardStock papers and card stocks that are so appropriate for weddings. First up is a faux wood sign cut out of Savannah White Limba Woodgrain cardstock. This is a lovely, heavily woodgrain embossed cardstock. Cutting this on my Cricut was very easy and the construction of the sign is simple as well.


 The basic Wood Sign Pattern (undecorated) comes from My Scrap Chick. It comes with beverage related printables but I chose to make my own decorations. Construction instruction on their site for it. You can see some of their examples below. This sign could be used in dozens of ways from a table centerpiece, a table number identifier, a food sign, announcing the same of the couple, as decorations in the cake display, bar and so on. The options are practically limitless.


The front and side panels of my signs are cut out of Curious Metallic Gold Leaf Cardstock. The top and sides were decorated with a Spellbinders die so that all sides have a pretty presentation. I created two versions. On one side I used a wedding bell die cute from CutCardStock Gold Glitter Paper and Mr and Mrs and the bell bow dies from Curious Metallic Pale Aloe on my Cricut. Premade paper flowers and a small iridescent bow quickly and inexpensively decorate it.


On the other side I created a wedding scene using two other Cottage Cutz Die Cuts: Bride and Groom and Trellis w/Vines. I cut the trellis out of more Limba Woodgrain and used markers to color the flowers and vines. The couple is cut out of Curious Metallic Pale Aloe. A pretty Prima rose accents this side.

My second project is a simple pillow box thank you favor. These would be lovely in a basket or included in a place setting as thank you mementos to the guests. The file is from the Silhouette Design Store and it's called Wedding Ring Pillow Box by Pebbles In My Pocket (photo from the store below). 

I cut mine on my Cricut Explore Air since a .SVG file is included in the purchase. I made one each in Curious Metallic Cardstocks, Pale Aloe and Pink Quartz. These give the box such an elegant look. They are economical to make since you can get several out of each card stock sheet and they won't break your bank when filling them with a sweet treat. M and M's or candied almonds would be perfect for these little boxes. The treats won't fall out because the window is covered with a small piece of acetate, just 1 3/4" square. A few inches of 1/4" Scor-Tape is all that's needed to secure it in the pillow shape. Additionally, small dabs of adhesive will secure the gold ring made of Mirrisparkle Gold Cardstock. The diamond is made of CutCardsStock  Silver Glitter Paper. I used the flag included in the file and drew a different Cricut Thank You sentiment using a Gray fine tipped Cricut pen. Then that is secured across the middle of the window with a glue dot on each side.  


I hope you like these projects. Be sure to keep the ideas coming and go to the next stop: Leslie Turner.  Leave a comment at each blog and leave a comment or upload a wedding CutCardStock project of your own at the CutCardStock blog to qualify for their $40 gift card. And last, don't forget also to go to my YouTube video and leave a comment there for the Cricut Pen prize.

    1. Thanks Brian and thanks for visiting my YouTube channel too. I did fix the June 11 reference to May. Thanks so much for catching it. If you like coffee, you might check out the MyScrapChick pattern because it comes with printables. I have one sitting with my coffee maker as a decoration. You're right that the signs could be used a lot of different ways. Thanks again. Janet

  6. Even if you hire a wedding planner do remember that it is your wedding and you need to make the final decision on what is needed and what can be left. You should not let the wedding planner make all the decisions as that will make your wedding not the way you really wanted it to be. But don't blindly accept or reject any suggestions from the wedding planner. Cyprus Weddings

  8. Mature dating is all about two willing people and usually it does not really have emotional attachments. Cougar dating is more about having fun; the older women are looking for some fun and the younger men alike and so the dating is always a win for them both. There are so many reasons why younger men prefer dating older women and why older women also love dating younger men. dating advice for women
