The tutorial I have for you today is for creating note cards with sponge stamps. Did you ever think a technique you used as a kid could be used in your wedding plans? Sometimes even the most simple DIY projects can have really cute results! These cards would make great thank you cards. You could also put together sets of 4-5 cards and give them to your guests as favors!
Blank Cards & Envelopes (color or white)
Pack of Sponges
Note: I found a pack of 50 colorful blank note cards with envelopes on sale at my local craft store for under $5!! For any DIY wedding projects, be sure to look for sales and coupons. It can make a huge difference in the total cost of your project!
Step 1: Draw – Using your marker, draw the shape you’d like to use for your stamp on your sponge. I decided to use a heart.
Step 2: Cut – Cut out your shape. (And be careful!)
Step 3: A Splash of Color – … Or, white. Time to add your paint! Squirt some paint onto your paper plate and dip your stamp right in. Since my cards were brightly colored, I chose to use white paint for most of them. You might want to grab a piece of scrap paper to test the stamp out a few times before using it on your cards. Sponge stamps provide a lot of texture. You’ll get different looks depending on how much or little paint you use. The test runs are helpful for getting the look you want.
Step 4: Stamp – Start Stamping! If you’re planning to group together sets of cards as favors, it can be fun to stamp them in different positions on the card to add a little variety.
If you have more sponges on hand, why not create different designs? Create different stamps and mix and match cards for your favors or to give each of your bridesmaids a custom set of note cards. You could even keep them for yourself and use them as thank you cards after the wedding!
Have fun crafting!
