Welcome Gifts for New Daughter-in-Law

I met my son's wonderful fiance two days before the wedding and I wanted to present her with a basket of gifts. I used the computer to make a card that said "Welcome to the Flayer Family" but forgot to photograph it to share. Inside the card I stamped a very old greeting from Close To My Heart that said "Wishing you a basket full of love" and signed it from all of us. The first gift that I made was a set of stamped notecards using her first name initial. I used CTMH Baroque Alphabet, Twilight Ink and Florentine Paper. (This stamp set will be retired as of August 1, 2012 so order it soon if you are interested in this intricately elegant font.)
The next gift is a personalized wooden frame that I purchased at Michael's. I applied several coats of Create-A-Shade paint and then embossed the top corner with a stamp from CTMH called "Dreams Come True" (retired from CTMH) in Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder (retired from CTMH) and stamped the date using "Elegant Script" (retired from CTMH). I didn't have a photo to put in the frame so I stamped a greeting from Cloud9 Design Simple Thoughts--Wedding set. The gold rings are from a very old CTMH wood set. The paper is blue parchment (retired CTMH). Various sizes of Opaque Adhesive Gems were applied to the top corner stamp.
I used Stazon Opaque White Ink to stamp their names on wine glasses. The heart stamps are from a retired CTMH set called "A Little Something". The letters are from Inkadinkado.
It was so much fun to create these gifts and to see how happy my son and his fiance were when they opened these gifts. Thanks for stopping by.
