I found this post on one of my favorite blogs, Oh So Beautiful Paper, and had to share this with you...
It’s the ladies of Antiquaria, back with another fabulous and creative DIY project for you! This week they’re here with instructions on how to create a rubber stamp save the date tag!
At Antiquaria, we love everything vintage!! In this save the date DIY, we were inspired by the look of old luggage and parcel tags. There is something very lovely and familiar about this tag shape but to have it professionally die cut can be quite costly. We emphasized the shape with “edge painting” using a very nifty and easy trick!!
Step One: Cut your kraft paper into a 4.5“x6” rectangle. Ink your save the date stamp (we used our “Ribbons and Banners” stamp) with your desired ink and make a print on your paper. Be sure to press evenly on a hard work surface. Let the ink dry overnight.
Step Three: Using the same or a coordinating ink color, drag edges smoothly through the pad to create the “edge painted” effect. Let dry overnight.
