Eeek I did them!!

I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a card to ask my friends and my sister to be in the wedding. I came up with so many sketches and purchased so many little cut-outs, I just didn't like any of them. I came across Jaryce21's blog and was blown away by the elegant DIY "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" cards. She gave great instructions and an excellent materials list. I went right out to A.C. Moore and found all the materials I needed to make these cute little cards. She assembled hers on a single sheet. I decided to use 5X7 folded cards. I put the question "Will you be my bridesmaid?" and the cute little dress on the front and a very sweet poem on the inside of the cards. I had a great time embossing all the dresses it was quite easy once I got the hang of it. I think by doing these cards it prepares me for the 150 invites I will be doing, but thankfully I have a little while before that happens.
