Wedding invitation No. 1: The layered look

1. Press rubber stamp evenly onto stamp pad, then stamp the small white card. This piece will lie between the back card and the printed vellum. (Practice positioning on scrap paper first.)  Let small card dry, then center and secure it to large colored card with one Glue Dot under each corner.

Stamp pads are available in pigment and dye styles. Pigment pads produce a printed-looking stamp, and dye pads create more of a watercolor look.

A good online source for rubber stamps is Stamp Francisco (360/210-4031).
