After months of working on the design, ordering samples, testing out stamps and ink pads, and gathering addresses, tonight was the night. Our Save-the-Dates have finally been sent out into the world to find our guests! From Patrick's design, to the print out, to some stamp tests and swirly designs, to assembling all the cards together, it's been such a fun process!!!
|Testing out stamp pressure for maximum clarity in design.|
Yup. I'm a nerd.
|Swirly design on back.|
The reason for the swirls on the back is none other than this; I felt it looked plain just having the blank white envelope. Being too impatient to wait for custom stickers to arrive by mail like I mentioned before, I decided to get artsy and draw pretty things. And that happened.
|Here are the pretty stamps we got.|
|Assembling Micah and Patrick's Save-the-Dates!|
|Sealed with love!|
|Our custom return address stamp!|
|Glorious Save-the-Date tower.|
|"Wedding Rose" postage stamp.|
(Pay no attention to the pink cupcake notebook.
Um. That's not mine...?)
|Happily sending them off!|
Project Save-the-Date may now be done, but here we go --- it's becoming more real! Did you do Save-the-Dates? Did it turn out to be a giant project, and how relieved were you when it was done?
P.S. Guests of the M & P wedding -- get ready!
