DIY Table Cards

The table cards were one of the easiest DIY projects related to the shower, but I love how they turned out. After lots of embossing, it was nice to do a quick project with good results, (embossing is awesome, but takes a lot of patience!)

To start the project, I gathered the supplies:
The photos were the real inspiration for this project. I wanted to include some elements from the film, but I also didn't want to go over the top, and I still wanted to stick with the color scheme, which has evolved. I found classic shots from the movie as the base of the table cards.I then purchased A7 Flast cream cardstock from PaperSource. I wanted some type of backing for the photo. So I glued the photos to these, to give an out line to the photos.I happend to have tons of remarks "Sarah Script" Letter/Number stickers left from all of my scrapbooking. I used the numbers from the extra sheets I had to mark each Table Card's number.
Then, to add a special sparkle, I used some rhinestone adhesives I had originally bought for my engagement party scrapbook pages, but never used.And after a little gluing and sticking, I came up with these.....
All the table numbers:

What's the easiest DIY project you've worked on?
