wedding card and last 2 gifts for my parents

Made this card really quick for a coworker's wedding we went to yesterday. I used Home Decor for the "forever" Their wedding colors were black, white, and red. (I cut off the bottom since our last name was on that.)

Fall and spring plaques for my parents (I don't think I posted the fall one...i finished it a couple weeks ago) I feel like the spring one is kinda busy...probably b/c I didn't plan it out as thoroughly as the others...but it is done...and now I can move on to other presents. Also the spring one was still drying, so pardon the Mod Podge that you can see. I had to snap the pic quick, b/c DS was awake and crying.

love the card. I never knew these cricuts and such things existed until I started reading more on this board... I always just thought people were very skilled with scissors or a craft knife or something lol

How big are the season plaques? they look great, I don't think spring is too busy.

The card is simply beautiful and I reallllly love the plaques! Maybe I'll have time this week to complete some of those. They would make a fabulous gift. Neither one of them seem too busy to me at all. I can tell they took a looot of work...great job!

thanks ladies Smile

yeah the plaques take over an hour each...yikes! it was worth it, though, since we aren't getting my parents anything big.

the size is about 8.25" or so wide (not sure how high). I wanted a wider one, as that is the design I was basing it on (saw it on the Cricut MBs), but these were the best size for the price. I would have rather had a flat one, since the decorative edges are just unfinished wood. If I had more time and energy, I would have painted the sides to coordinate. I did coat them in the Mod POdge just to seal them

Lauren, thank you soooo much. You just gave me the perfect gift for my families vacation house. We're always trying to find signs for that house. I never once thought of making them. My dad has made one or two out of wrought iron, but they've been too big for the gate.
