Josh’s sister is getting married in July and her bridal shower was last weekend. The invitation came from Casalastudio on Etsy and I used the design to make a few gifts.
Along with the invitation, everyone got recipe cards to share their favorite recipes. I briefly debated painting a recipe box for her, but instead talked to Jen from 52 lasers about etching it with the laser cutter. Originally I had planned on painted the letters after it was etched, but it turned out so amazing I didn’t want to risk messing it up. The banner underneath has their wedding date on it.
Next I made an embroidery with the same design. I used Kreinik silk mori and it was so amazing to stitch with! I had received the silk mori months ago but I was so nervous to try it out, I didn’t want to waste it on any old project, but this gift seemed the perfect occasion to use it. The silk was so soft and the colors are so rich.
I really loved working with the silk and plan to do it more often!
Cross stitch will always be my favorite, but I’m getting a soft spot for embroidery. I definitely appreciate the speed of it!
Were the oatmeal cookies Evie’s idea? 🙂
Yes, she even wrote her own name on the card. 🙂
This is gorgeous!!
Thanks so much! I feel weird about how much embroidery I’ve been doing lately, I’ve always been a cross stitch girl at heart. But I love the results and I’m having a lot of fun with it!
