I’ve been waiting to post these until I had made sure each bridesmaid received her card. I still have a few left but I couldn’t wait any longer.
To make the cards I used my Cricut that I received from Mr. Ducky for my birthday. I love my Cricut! While the cards were rather labor intensive because I individually did each letter and shape, I’m happy with how they all turned out. I made each card a little different, adjusting the colors and fonts to the personalities of each bridesmaid. I wanted to give each girl something special that involved a picture of us together.
I have 2 Maids of Honor! Yes, a little unusual, but let me explain my thinking. My two Maids of Honor are my best friends from high school. I also went to college with one of them, and she was a sorority sister. It has always been the three of us together, since way back in our high school cheer days, and our never-ending coffee dates at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. It made sense that my wedding would include our team of 3. Also, they are two of the most busy people in the world, and I am hoping that sharing the duties can alleviate any possible stress.
A few close-ups of some individual cards…
I used vellum envelopes and traced the name of each girl on the front. When you look at the front of each envelope you can see the picture of us underneath. It was a fun effect; I am thinking about using vellum in our wedding invitations, as well.
And those are the bridesmaids’ cards! What do you think? Let me know if you have any questions about how I did anything. If you are interested in buying a Cricut let me know. I’ve been seeing some good deals that are more affordable than what is listed on Cricut website.
If you liked these, wait until I show you the new gadget Mr. Ducky gave me for Christmas to add to my crafting collection. You will see my first little test projects soon!
