    This was a very fun and simple project and I got a lot of inspiration from this forum, so thanks to all you BDW ladies!!

     

    I made a design and then just uploaded it to a Vistaprint Business card. I ordered ID Badge Holders from Specialist ID for only .28 cents/badge!

    I also ordered my lanyards from the same website in my wedding colors for only .29 cents each!

    I also got a discount bc my order was considered a bulk order bc I used the same badges for my luggage tags. Check out my thread for those here: http://www.bestdesti...cs#post_1872847

     

    Once my materials arrived I just put them together.... SIMPLE!


    Here is my design:

    Front:

     

    Back:

     

    And here is how they came out with the lanyards attached:

     

     

     

    I plan to out these in my OOT bags which I will hand out at the Welcome Party Dinner! I think the guests will like them and they are practical... just toss in your beach bag and you'll always have your room key and some spare cash :)

     

    Happy Planning, ladies! Let me know if you have any questions. :)

    -Megan

        So pretty!!! I would love to use your template, just change my color to coral, can you send me your template? You did a great job! I was trying to do my own, but was having a problem getting the wording to go around the card like you did

        Now Larimar 8/9/13; I married my best friend! 29 of my closest friends and family celebrated with us! Couldn't have wished for anything better :)

          Thank you! I'm sorry I didn't use a template. :/ I dabble a little in graphic design so I actually designed these from scratch. I used picmonkey.com. It's a free online editor and pretty easy to use if you fool around with it. Hope this helps!

              Once you go to the picmonkey site, where do you start? Am I supposed to start with the photo editing??
