You should check your FICO scores and see how they are, they may not have taken such a hit from this. You just have to let time run it's course to repair this. The thing is, in order to build and maintain good credit you have to open accounts which you get dinged for. Short term damage is necessary for long term success in the credit game, not much you can do about it.

If you get the credit cards, be happy, since granting them means you are trusted.  Use them sparingly and pay in full when the statements arrive.  You learned a lesson and won't repeat it. It is not a disaster.  If you haven't already read the articles here, I advise doing so. It is valuable information.
