Sorry if the photo is enormous or blurry! I had to convert the file a few times so that I could upload it on to here and I also had to figure out how to edit out the personal info! Hopefully you all can see it 🙂
This is just the proof — the save the date will be on ecru paper and it will be letterpress!
We were planning on doing the date in GOLD and keeping the rest of the font in black. My question is: should we do the date and the swirly embellishment BOTH in gold, or just the date?
Thanks for your feedback!!

Just the date. Keep it strong.

crackktheskyy: the embelishment is just there to give the card some breathing space and create a visual break between the two different types of information on the card – date, time, location <break> followed by the other two lines. no need to highlight the swirly as its not important here. keep the date in gold and like the previous pp said – keep it strong

theshannondee: Thanks, this is a good point!
ScubaSiren: So true. I didn’t really think of it this way. You’re so right, though!
I’m wondering if I should do an even smaller embelishment? Maybe I’ll make a second thread to vote on that!

The 06 looks kind of weird to me. I would just do 6.27.15 IMO. I think the date in gold with the rest black sounds great.

+1 for just the date
Have you considered spelling the date out (June 27, 2015?) Just a thought, since it would be small enough to fit.
Also, black and gold? Those are Pittsburgh colors!! 😉

strema: Haha I didn’t even think about the PGH connection — FI lives there! We just thought it was elegant but that the gold added a little bit of fun to the card. We did think about spelling it out, but with the letterpress and everything else I was hoping that the numbers would make it look more whimsy. I was worried about it looking too much like an invitation!
