#5: DIY "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" Cards

Since I've done a few things before starting this blog, I want to get caught up with posting about those things and that includes my DIY cards I made my girls to ask them to be my bridesmaids.

I went to a discount scrapbook store in Marietta, GA and hit the jackpot! A discount scrapbook store is one where all items are heavily discounted from normal prices because they do not know if they will restock the items or they are leftovers from other stores.

I already had scrapbook tape, so I found 12x12 paper, letter size cardstock, ribbon, die-cuts, and stick-on embellishments all for under $10!

I made each one a little different...

I found the perfect saying and wrote it in all the cards:

The day, the dress
The bride, the groom
The joy, the tears
Will all come soon

Professing true love
To my husband-to-be
With family and friends
All watching me

I hope the sun will
Be shining down
Keep your fingers crossed
That I'll fit my gown

But there's one more thing
That there needs to be
And that's to have you
Standing with me!
