i am getting married in 86 days…

March 25, 2009

and while the invitations are working themselves out, with a lot of lovely help, i thought i’d show the save the dates i made..

it was a really big project. the designs were scanned in to the computer and then printed onto cardstock from paper source {my favorite store of all time}



once everything was printed (it took some time to get the printer to accept printing onto A2 and 4bar sized cards) the text card got trimmed and attached to a brown card WHICH was then attached to the foldover.

the text itself was really fun to do,


as was addressing the envelopes, also from paper source. dscn2570dscn2561despite all the layers, the final cost of these was really not too bad, something like 86¢ each.

i’m sort of sad that the save the dates and invitations are already designed, its a pretty fun process, you can really do anything.. i’m excited to make the programs!

this one is called “Genesis in the Retort”

    Please make this calligraphy avalible as a font. Or point me in the right direction as font like this… It is formal but not too fancy like most calligraphy. Love it!
