diy save the dates


here are the diy save the dates. i designed them in adobe illustrator using some images and fonts i downloaded for free. then printed them on kraft paper which i tri-folded.

the envelopes are diy too. i found a cool side opening envelope and used it as a pattern.

then i used a good old fashioned calligraphy pen to address them. nothing super fancy but it did the job. i like the way they turned out and am now proclaiming that the wedding colors are red, turquoise and kraft! i love kraft paper so much and it is so economical!

I'm impressed with you! ja, ja
You are really well organized and I'm sure you are having more fun organizing all this stuff than I did with mine. ja, ja...
I thought mine was exciting, but now yours sounds better! :)
It looks really nice!
