I’m excited to share with you some of the paper projects I did for our wedding! When I got married eons ago there weren’t a lot of wedding blogs. I took pictures of everything I did so I could share the process.
I used Microsoft Word for the layout. For the main part of the postcard, I took the picture we wanted to use (below, the Berkeley campus where we were married), sized it in MS Word and then lightened it so it would look like a watermark. Then, I put a text box over the picture and added our text.
I printed these on my home printer and had them professionally cut. One of the themes for my wedding crafts was “I know my limits.” There was no way I could individually cut all of these cards myself with any precision. The few bucks spent on cutting was worth it.
Finally, I glued both layers together and sent them off! My next wedding projects got even crazier. I can’t wait to share!
*I ended up having to pay first class postage anyway because the cards were too big. Fail. Postcards must be no larger than 6 inches by 4 1/4 inches. Tip – If you are trying to save money on postage, make a prototype and take it into the post office to see how much it will cost to mail before you go through the trouble of making all the cards!
