will you be my bridesmaid cards.


my other half and i have been engaged for AGES. we're not in any hurry but things have finally been moving along so i want to share a recent 'wedding' project...

the girls i wanted to ask to be in the wedding are close friends/family and have been around for awhile. during my wedding research i found some cute bridesmaid cards here and here. i loved everything about them but the actual design!! (too cutesy for me) so what better way than to share my love of crafting to ask them in a special way. i came up with a cheezy poem and married it (no pun intended) with some supplies from our local craft store. i love the dress stamp and know i'll use it lots in the future. if interested, check out the steps and pics on my projects page.

i am an engaged girl as well and i actually bought that stamp at michael's a few months ago. i was curious to know what ink pad you used... i see it says vibrance. where did you get it? i always feel like the ink i use smears...

kimberly - I actually bought the ink pad at Michael's. It was part of a 'set' with like 20 other stamps and 4 Vibrance ink pads - which all work great! I haven't encountered smearing but I did practice a bunch b/c the corners of the stamp put ink on the card when I pressed too hard. Try putting an old foam mousepad under the cardstock or paper and press straight down on the stamp from overhead. The mousepad can help prevent large stamps from shifting....

good luck and thanks for visiting!
