It only hit me just now writing this post that this is a photo-less layout – just my Save the Date card and a story. I really want to showcase the paper items from our wedding not just because I made them (okay, well maybe), but because they’re a part of our wedding story. Wedding photo albums are great, but I don’t like the idea of my invitations and other things sitting in a box somewhere.
Our Save the Date was a postcard, so I glued two copies in order to show both sides. I added a small story about how we picked our wedding date.
I decided to stick with pink and grey for this one. I cut the headline out with the Silhouette and decided to try Garamond italic for the date. Note to self, don’t cut thin fonts out of thick cardstock with the Silhouette. I just barely got this to work!
