My little sister is getting married in September. So I have been busy making Save the date cards for the big day. I wanted them to be something someone can post on the fridge but it would be sturdy that would not fall apart before the big day. So I decided to make a project that would be adhered to a 4x4 chipboard coaster purchased from American Coasters and I put a strip of magnet to the back of the coaster. The poem on the coaster comes from an old song that I changed the words a little to include the place that they met. I punched out the poem with my 2 3/4" circle punch from Paper Shapers. The brushed gold card stock I cut out with my Coluzzle. I have to say after making over 100 of these my Coluzzle didn't make it. It broke can I tell you how happy I am we are getting a new circle cutter! Then some Brushed Gold and Bravo Burgundy card stock was adhered on top of Very Vanilla that I rounded the edges with my corner rounder. The leaf punch comes from Martha Stewart. I punched the leaves and attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. The finishing touch was two gold brads. There will be more projects as we get closer to the date. I am just happy to be finished with the first project!
