…especially when they are pretty colors!
Today I *think* I finished designing my Save-the-Dates. I am not going to show the whole thing because, well, I want to actually mail them before I show them off!
Originally, we weren’t going to send out paper Save-the-Dates. Mr. Snapdragon and I had prioritized our budget, and Save-the-Dates were an unnecessary expense. However, we promptly realized the error of our ways when we remembered the following things:
1) A significant number of people on our guest list are less than computer literate. In fact, some might have a bit of trouble even getting a computer to turn on, so an email Save-the-Date would be no good to those particular guests at all! 2) Sometimes the internet fails to actually deliver the missive to all of the intended recipients, especially when a mass mailing is involved. 3) Paper Save-the-Dates are actually extremely cheap.
CONCLUSION: We are going to do both a paper and an email STD; that way the computer illiterate will get the info and the email-friendly but snail mail challenged addresses will be reached, as well. Since I’ve never met a crafting project I didn’t like, today I tackled getting those suckers designed… I whittled my ideas down to two: a dry embossed version and a solely printed version…
I had my heart set on a postcard with a dot-embossed border, however, it turned out jankity and jankity will not do. I do not own a Cuttlebug, so I created my own dot embossing stencil, and it showed.
The solely printed version looks pretty good (to me, anyway!) I think it needs a tiny bit of pizazz though, so I think I may heat emboss certain lines.
