With our wedding only 6 months away I had to send out our Save the Dates this past week. If the next 6 months are anything like the past year, it will go by uber fast! Since our wedding has a southern vintage vibe I wanted our STDs to reflect this as well since they are said to set the tone of your wedding. After agonizing over this Etsy designer and that Etsy designer for months I finally found a STD that I loved (Etsy has become my most LOVED resource for all party planning….if you aren’t on board with it yet then you should be!) After I tweaked it all a little and collected everything I needed, I got to work and gave them a personal touch. First, I cut the edges of the original cardstock…..
Next I got my heavier, cream colored cardstock that I ordered from Bella Rose Craft to use as a backing for a sturdier overall piece. With a little rubber cement and time they were starting to come together.
Finally, I stuffed the envelopes I ordered here and they were ready to be addressed and mailed out!
Such an easy and fun project!
Helpful Hint: If you ever use rubber cement ALWAYS use a rubber cement eraser! I discovered this handy little crafting tool a few years back in one of my Graphic Design classes and IT.IS.AMAZING. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
