Wedding Menu & Seating Plan

You may remember from earlier posts that I made my brother's wedding invitations. Well, the wedding was on Friday & went really well! I also made the menus & the seating plan - here are some pics:

This is the front cover of the menu, made in a very similar style to the invitations. I mainly used Stampin' Up! products. The card is Almost Amythist, which was embossed top & bottom with a cuttlebug embossing folder (sorry, haven't got the name of it). I hand cut the centre aperture with a craft knife, then stamped the hearts & swirls with Almost Amythis ink. It is backed with Whisper White. The word "Menu" & the hearts have been embossed with silver embossing powder (Stampin' Up!). The white grosgrain ribbon is from Stampin' Up! & the lilac organza ribbon is from Hobbycraft. These are just tied in a simple double knot.

This is the inside of the menu. The text was computer generated & printed on Whisper White card stock. The swirls were again stamped with Almost Amythist ink.

Here's the seating plan - made from A2 foam board from Staples. I covered it with some purple organza that I already had. The same cardstock has been used & I've added some gems to bling it up a bit!!! The flowers were made using Stampin' Up! punches & the silver buckle is from the Silver Hodgepodge set.

Here's a couple of close-ups:
