I have what I think is my final for my STD but just want to get some feedback. I am pretty happy but want to make sure I am not completely missing something here. One friend suggested that the quote might be too serious for the overall card. Please let me know your thoughts Bees!! Thank you!
Just so you know what your looking at, the color image is a magnet (already ordered and currently being made) The magnet will then be glue dotted onto a larger card, designed as per below, using the letterpress technique. So the image and font/text will be pressed into the card, then filled with ink, like the example here:
So here is the STD:

@HardyPooleParty: Where did you get the design for you magnet? I know I’ve seen that layout before. Did you just use photoshop to put your details in it?

I don’t think the quote is too serious, but I’m not sure if it’s very fitting. It seems to be promoting independence, which is great, but not very wedding-y?
As far as the design goes, it looks fantastic!

I love the STD, but to be honest, the quotation is a little confusing–it doesn’t seem like the most natural quotation to be involved in wedding stationary, you know? It seems more about believing in yourself/being independent (unless I’m missing the meaning of it). Or are you having a bird themed wedding?
But I love the layout and the photo.

i love the layout and the magnet, but i agree…i don’t think the quote is very appropriate for wedding stationery.

Ok I am hunting for more quotes, I tend to agree. Wedding its bird themed, its vintage shabby chic. I just kind of think that stencil looking animal drawings tend to lean that way and I think the bird is cute and I like the little birdie idea.
@allieisasweety: The design is from Weddingpaperdivas.com. Which btw, their personalize it tool, for making these, is FANTASTIC! Also their CS has been great and super helpful and responsive on Live Chat.

Actually I just re-read the quote a few times, isnt Blake actually saying that the bird can only do so much alone? He can only soar so high on his own wings, meaning he needs his fellow birds to go higher? Am I off base?

@HardyPooleParty: No, it means as long as a bird is using his own wings, he can never soar too high.
Meaning that by doing it himself the sky is limitless.

@HardyPooleParty: Are you ordering from Weddingpaperdivas or are you having them printed somewhere else? I’ve run into a monster problem with my thank you cards and I really want letterpress.
