Since I’m on this magnet kick, I decided to do that. I admit that it might be a bit cheesy to have a personalized wedding magnet but I figured it’s better than them tattooing each other’s names on themselves! The magnet itself is very simple. The card, however, is a totally different story.
I decided I would house this magnet right inside the card so that I can put it in the card bin with everything else. It’s just easier than passing it on to someone for safekeeping for the night and risk it getting lost in the partying with my cheque inside! I made the card big: 5 x 7. I also used a whole arsenal of tools to make it! I can’t recall when I last used so many things on one project!

Firstly, I cut all the pieces with my Bosskut Gazelle. The doves are a design by Bosskut Designs. The lacy circle and sentiment frame I drew myself in the software. Next, I used my Quickutz/Lifestyle Crafts Epic Six to emboss the lacy circle with a Stampin’ Up! embossing folder. I also reached for my Stampin’ Up! stampajig to stamp the sentiment squarely in the frame. Lastly, I used my newest tool, the Cropadile Big Bite to set the eyelets. I actually crushed the eyelets the first two setting attempts but, once I figured out the pressure, the second frame was finished just fine.
