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.
Finish up the suite with twine, wrapping the bundle a few times before making a knot.
