Bridesmaid Cards :)

Even before my engagement I thought about who I wanted by my side on my wedding day.
After I was finally engaged, I knew I didn't want to just ask "Hey, will you be in my wedding?"
I had to do something crafty of course!

What did I do? I made cards for my friends asking that they be my Bridesmaid :)

BTW...these are my colors :) ...kinda, haha. Coral and Yellow. wedding will be in Sept, so if I have trouble getting coral, it'll be pink.

I got the idea for a card while browsing Etsy.

I saw this one at Kilgore Custom Designs...but wanted more of a traditional card.

....and I loved the wording on these cards from The Inspired Note...even the fonts... I combined the ideas, added my own ideas, and LOVED the outcome :D

I used my Silhouette to cut out the shapes and icky spray adhesive to put it all together!

Here are a few pictures...sorry some are blurry :/

I cut out a solid piece of "coral" and a yellow leaf design.

Then printed my words and out for the inside of the card.

...glued these two together...

...and then glued it to the outside of the card.

I found this dress shaped card (w/o the design on it) in the silhouette shop. I just sliced it in half to get singles of the dress. The design and sash I added and printed on white cardstock to begin w/ ...but then decided I didn't like it w/ my yellow leaf design.

I also used my silhouette to cut out these name tags.

...rhinestones, pearls, ribbon...

And my end result :)

Hope you love them as much as I do! my friends said YES.

If you don't feel crafty, then definately check out the Etsy shope I mentioned above, b/c they have some super cute cards you can buy!
