DIY Tutorial: Rubber Stamp Photo Card Save the Dates

It’s the ladies of Anti­quaria, back with another fab­u­lous and cre­ative DIY project for you!  This week they’re here with some awe­some DIY photo card save the dates!

Need a fabulous and unique way to incorporate your engagement shoot into your save the date?  We’ve got the solution for you: hand stamped photo save the date cards!  We are constantly inspired by all the wonderful engagement shoots that folks are putting together these days, and wanted to find a way to incorporate that imagery with rubber stamps.  We think the results are truly adorable and your family and friends will love receiving a sweet photo of the two of you.

Step One: Cut paper to a size A9 card (5.5″ x 8.5″).  Use photo corners (our most recent obsession) to secure your (3″ x 5″) photo to the card.  You just stick them on each corner to activate and the adhesive, center over the paper and press down to secure.

Step Two: This step will take two stamps, a monogram (we used our ribbons & banners monogram) and a website stamp (we used our calligraphy accent website stamp).  Ink each stamp thoroughly, position and stamp down on a hard, even surface.  Let dry.

Step Three: Cut paper to (4″ x 4.5″).  Ink a save the date stamp (we used our “Circus” save the date stamp) and make print on a hard surface.  Make sure when stamping, you apply moderate and even pressure over the entire stamp.  Let dry before assembly.
