Wedding Gift

I made this name frame for some friends at church who are getting married on Nov. 15. (I remember that date easily because it was my best friends birthday when I was growing up.) I got the inspiration from Split Coast Stampers, namely here and here. I used Le Jardin DSP (retired from Stampin' Up!) because I think it is very beautiful and elegant. Then I chose the stripe background because the opening is wider than 12" and the stripes hide the seam. You can't find it, can you? I had to look for it myself very closely. I don't have any big alphabet stamps, so I printed the last name on vellum with my computer. Then I cut out each letter and mounted it on different pattern from Le Jardin. Those are then mounted onto Always Arthichoke. I used Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon across the bottom. Then printed out their first names along with the Bible verse on Very Vanilla. Then, cut that out and sponged with So Saffron ink then mounted on Always Artichoke. The mat came with the frame, but it was one of those mats that are divided for (3) 4" x 6" photos. I used my craft blade to cut out the little dividers from the mat and then sponged Always Artichoke around the inside edges. The little flourish in the corners is from the stamp set Friendship Blooms, from the last Sale a Bration. OK, did I miss anything?
Of course, I had to have a coordinating card, so I cased the layout for the card from here. The sentiment is from Full of Life stamp set from the last mini. I used all the same materials for the card as I did for the frame.
And of course, here they are together.

Thanks for looking!

A very nice wedding gift. The colors will coordinate with just about any decor so it has a sense of timelessness about it. The recipients are blessed to get such a nice gift.
