So this morning was our cake testing. PJ asked to stay home because he worked 60 hours this week and didn't have a day off yet and wanted to sleep in. So I told him that if he didn't go that he had no say in cake design or flavor lol, which works for me cause we couldn't agree anyways haha. So I met my mom at Walmart, cashed my check and then we went to Starbucks. We both ordered black cherry frappacino's and sat down. My appointment was at 10:00 am, 10:15 rolled by and I tried to call my cake designer and got the voicemail. I figured she probably just forgot but ended up that her daughter was sick and she had left me an email, but because I never check my email I didnt get it. Ohwell. A little miscommunication on both our ends so we just rescheduled. Since my mom drove up a half hour and was in the area we decided to do a little shopping. We went over to Joanne's Fabrics and I ended up buying 150 White card sheets, glitter glue, and some vellum papers with cute little love phrases on each. After saying goodbye to my lovely mother I sat at my dining room table for approximately 5 hours making my escort cards. Luckily the photo department at work let me borrow their paper cutter so it made things easy for me....
Here is how I made my escort cards!
First I cut 60 foldable plain, white cards.
Then I cut 60 smaller, cream, matted pieces of paper.
I then glued the matted paper ontop of
the plain paper for a layered effect.
Then I glued a piece of vellum paper,
which had a different love quote on each - into the escort cards.
Then I took a black pen & hand-drew swirls onto each card.
I did 4 different designs to total a count of 60 escort cards.
I then took my purple and silver glitter glue and did the designs.
Then I decided to go through them all and
put a silver stripe down them also.
They actually look even more beautiful in person.
The silver sparkles just like diamonds, which I love.
Now they are drying on my dining room table.
As soon as I get the wedding replies in the mail,
I will tweek my seating chart a bit and then
write in the names and table numbers onto each.
And maybe this week, since I have alot of paper left over
I will hand-make all the Table number cards also.
Now.... how I sat that long and did such a great job when I am totally miserable & PMSing, do not ask, cause I have no clue. Maybe by the glory of God! He gave me the patience and creativity I needed, if just for 5 hours - to do what I needed to get done. I also bought the cake knife & spatula and my tiara, which I will post pictures of tomorrow. Right now I am going to get offline and lay down in bed and watch some tv. My back is killing me and I need to rest before another long week at work..... night <3
