I am stealing this idea shamelessly from Miss. Lightening.
I saw the wonderful bridesmaid information cards she made and I knew I wanted to do one as well. I scoured the internet for a vintage picture of an African American bridal party and was able to find the perfect pic (PM me if you want a copy of the jpeg).
I then did all my work in Mac Pages after modifying the pic from black and white to sepia tone in Iphoto. It was easy to add a pink border and a pink title (using Burgues font – color does not show well in photo). I then designed the back of the card giving my bridesmaids a timeline of the day with all relevant events for them and then adding at the bottom any pertinent information for day of and contact information for the wedding planners. The roses were done with a font I downloaded from dafont.com.
I printed the cards on shimmery 80lb cardstock which really enhanced the effect of the card.
Card measured 4″ x 6″

I am racking my brain around how you created this in MAC pages, did you start with a blank document or cards and invitation? and how did you create the border I tried creating a text box but I’m having problem getting a full border. Also how did you create the back of the card which format did you use?
Can you provide details I absolutley LOVE IT….

I did do it all in Mac Pages. I found that the easiest way for me to create a two sided document is just make it to the final size.
- I set my document size to 4×6 in Mac Pages
- I draw a rectangle shape on my document and then resize so that it is the same size as my document and centered both vertically and horizontally.
- Bring up the Inspector window and and choose the icon that is a rectangle and circle which is the “Graphic” tab
- Select your rectangle and in the inspector menu click on the fill drop down menu. You should have the option to “Image Fill” which allows you to choose jpegs from your hard drive or Iphoto
- To create the border I drew another rectangle with curved corners on top, chose the option on the Graphic tab of the Inspector window to no fill and dashed lines. Then I resized and centered horizontally and vertically.
Hope this helps with the Mac Pages question.
