Wedding Papercut

Some friends of mine were recently wed (on a lavender farm!!!), and I decided it was the perfect time to do a little papercutting.

Font used: Cafe Lounge 19
(As usual, I printed out my text and then altered the text and flourishes with pencil before using it as a cutting template.)

The butterfly, poppy and water detail are all elements in some of the couples' tattoos.  And I chose an art nouveau looking font because the bride was using that style in her invites.

So... I'm that weirdo that made the bride open her gift at her wedding.  I love gift-giving because you get to see people's reactions to something I usually put a lot of thought into.  Then my friends and I styled this as it sat at the wedding party table.  Good thing the bride and groom are laid-back.

Did I mention the wedding was at a lavender farm...

And this is where I mention how much I miss the Pacific Northwest... so beautiful.

Oh that's so pretty - what a perfect gift! It's a dream of mine to visit a lavender farm someday.
