Oh, look - something pretty came in the mail...
the back of the envelope gives a little sneak peek... (PS - remember that globe with our initials - It looks like we'll have some sort of a reoccurring monogram after all)...
Open it up... oh look - pretty map, and... our names!
Pull out the card and voila! Our beautiful save the dates!
all photos by me. It pained me to blur out all that personal information -
they're even prettier when you can see everything.
Squeal! I am so pleased and proud of my little babies and I can't wait to hear what our guests think.
As you can see, I decided against using the map background on the actual cards like my inspiration, but used it as an envelope liner instead. Honestly, the envelopes are more elaborate (and took a lot more work) than the cards themselves, but I'm okay with that - I love how it all looks together. Besides, I think the wrapping of a gift is almost more important than the gift itself - why should these be any different?
What do you think? These were pretty simple to make, but I will be posting a tutorial soon if any of you are interested.
