Wine for newlyweds

I went to a cousin's wedding this weekend, and she was a beautiful bride. It made me think back to our wedding, and all of the thoughtful presents we received from our friends - some on our registry, and some not. We noticed that they had wine glasses on their registry, and so we took that as a starting point to assemble our package.

To start, I made them a handmade book with a wine theme. The book is hand-stitched, and includes beads on the spine. I had some special charms of wine bottles that I'd been saving for a book like this. The papers are from Club Scrap (solids), and Karen Foster Design (wine patterned). I hope they use this book to store memories of good evenings together - perhaps with a bottle of wine!

We also found some great wine and beer glasses for them. To make sure they had something to fill the glasses, we took a selection of wines from our collection. Some were made by my husband who is really into home brewing wines and beer.

To finish it off, the Club Scrap wedding collection provided the perfect backdrop for a card. The embossed "love" and "honor" parts are integrated into the paper. The silver panel was made by printing out the words, and since it was vellum, it was easy to stamp the silver heart in the middle and emboss it. It's very simple, and elegant, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
