Anyone out there who when diying invitations used rubber stamping and other cardmaking techniques? I plan on doing that along with my mother and a friend and I just wondered how it went for other people. I also plan to do the same for my thank you cards, which I am going to start on here soon. For those who did it this way, did you wish you hadn’t?

I did. I think it turned out pretty good.
The flower is stamped, and then heat embossed. I was going to use just black ink but it smeared on the paper if anyone touched it. It was really time consuming but, IMO, worth it in the end. And i saved tons of money!

Well, heat embossing can be very time consuming, but I think if I was doing several of them at once, it wouldn’t be so bad. Plus, since I have my mom and a friend who are also experienced cardmakers, we can do an assembly line and it might not be so bad. is that stamp from stampin up? My mom sells stampin up and that is what I plan to use myself.

Embossing tip: If you’re trying to do a bunch at once, instead of using the heat tool, stick them in the oven at 450 degrees for a few minutes.
Actually, you can do this for any embossing, but I think it would make it easier if you had a bunch.
