Will You Be My Bridesmaid Cards

Monday, December 29, 2008

I wanted to do something simple and elegant. Something that would set the tone for my wedding. I came across an amazing way to ask my bridesmaids from a lovely fellow bride off Project Wedding. Thanks Kohler44 for the inspiration!





What you'll need:

  • Invitation box set purchased from Office Depot. Includes: Card stock invites, RSVP cards, Monogram stickers, Invite envelopes and RSVP card envelopes.

  • Bridesmaid dress stamp @ $10.95 - 1.25 inch satin ribbon in Aubergine @ $0.92 each yard - Watermark stamp pad @ $4.99 - 10 oz. aubergine embossing powder @ $3.49, Embossing heating gun @ $22.00, Krazy glue pen @ $3.49 and Swarovski adhesive crystals @ $3.99 per pack was ALL purchased from Michael's Craft Store.

How To:

  1. Create on Word.
  2. Find/create a poem. Copy and paste onto your Word document.

  3. Make sure to adjust margins accordingly to card stock size.

  4. Change the font/font color to your likings.

  5. Allow at least 3-4 inches at the bottom for stamp.

  6. Print.

  7. TIME TO EMBOSS!!

  8. Take your stamp and apply in your clear Watermark stamp pad.

  9. Gently but firmly stamp to the card stock. Hold for about 3-5 seconds and lift.

  10. Take your embossing powder and sprinkle it onto the stamp.

  11. Take your embossing heating gun and dry the powder approximately 4-6 inches away from card stock.

  12. Dry until you notice the powder creating a metallic look and a 3D feel.

  13. TIME TO CRYSTALIZE!!

  14. Take your Krazy glue pen and dab 3 dots on the belt line of the dress.

  15. Place a Swarovski crystal on each dot.
  16. TIEING IT ALL TOGETHER!!
  17. Take your ribbon, tie a knot, bow or whatever you like...

...and VOILA! A beautiful card to ask your beautiful ladies to stand by you on your most important day of your life!

And we can't forget about our wonderful envelopes.

What You'll Need:
  • Envelopes from the invitation kit mentioned above.
  • Already made wax seals with engraved heart monograms.

How To:

  1. Print envelopes on Word - Envelopes and Labels
  2. Fill in the Delivery Address and Return Address
  3. Seal the back with the wax seals.

Simple!!
