Bridal Shower Advice Book

Hello everyone!


Since I am getting married on April 21, 2012 my bridal shower is fast approaching for February!


I looked around online for some inspiration and what really inspired me was the blog weddings with the cricut (however I was very sad to see that the blog is no longer available :/). One of the posts showed a bridal advice book and the guests wrote their advice on tags and added them to the book. 


So I decided I wanted to create a bride advice book! At my shower I will give all of the attendants a tag and they will write me their advice for marriage. When they have finished writing they will put the tag into my advice book. I wanted to share with you what I have done already!

Snowman Tag

Hello!

I created my very first and favorite Christmas tag!


I cut the snowman on my Cricut using the Doodlecharms cartridge in white card stock, then the shadow on Kraft card stock at 3 inches.
I cut the tag using my Gyspy with the Tags, Bags, and More cricut cartridge.
For the snowman's nose I used Martha Stewart's orange glitter. (LOVE her glitter!)
I also used my white gel pen to create stitches around the shadow. 

I used my PaperTrey Ink's banner dies on my Cuttlebug using kraft card stock and distressed using Rich Cocoa Momento Ink.
For the snowman's face I used Peachy Keen's Everyday Character stamp using Black Tuxedo Momento Ink. I then drew the snowman's buttons using a blank pen. 
The "There's Snow one like you" stamp was from Scrappy Mom's Christmas stamp set and was inked in Rich Cocoa Momento Ink. 

Hope you enjoyed my Snowman tag!
