Here is the beginning of the wedding gift cross-stitches that I have done. This was the first one, made for my brother, Greg, and his bride, Rachael. I pretty much stuck to an already made pattern for this one, but if you look closely at the bottom, I integrated the words "to the home of Greg and Rachael Chromy Established July 26, 2003" into the vines. This one I matted and framed as well... the matte is navy blue suede. It looked awesome!
Here is a picture of what the pattern looks like stitched.
