ere comes the Bride all dressed in white…Well not always! I loooove looking through bridal magazines…the dresses are so pretty now a days. So many options aside the traditional crisp white. Although a classic is a classic, one has to remember…It is HER day after all and the dress needs to suit the bride’s personality in my mind : ).
Now before I go ahead with the itsy bitsy of my project I have news to celebrate and share with all!! Today I am officially joining the Though the Craft Door Room Magazine Design Team!

Since May is bridal month in so many places I decide to make a project inspired on this special day! Well, we just witnessed one of the weddings of the century this past weekend and OMG the bride was just glorious! DREAMY!There is something special about weddings and you don’t need to be a royalty…but for sure you must feel and look like one!
So for my Wedding project I created a little bridal gift set (or could also be used as a a Bride & Bride’s maid party feature), a decorated cupcake (with icing matching the lovely Champagne color of the bride’s dress) with a cupcake topper indicating who is the special one! No doubt here, it is all about “Her day”! I used the just released Lil’ Bride and Bouquet from the BRAND NEW SERIES OF GILLI STAMPS….LIL’GILLI!!!! Yeah! They are small enough to give that special compliment to all your Gilli Projects!!! You have plenty of space to color too!!! THE real icing on the cake for your projects!
To make the cupcake topper base I used two layers of cut out from my Silhouette die cutter Library adding a little sparkly border. LIL’ GILLI Bride and Bouquet (Memento on Cryogen paper) was colored using copic markers. As you can see I tried to give the dress a real texture feel and that sating look…using Smooch. Her veil was also colored with Copic and the crystal effect was created using Stikles. The tiny pearl earing was created using Viva Décor pearl pen! All the flowers you see in the picture are edible flowers made by hand by yours truly! I loveeee making them…such a therapy! LOL. Now to complete the gift set…just a little something special to make it all more sweet: ).
Now if you all excuse me ….someone need to care of that cupcake..lol. After all I have reasons to celebrate!!!
See you all soon!!!
