I just finished my first sketch up of our save the dates. I’d like to know what you guys think?
I’m going to get a cricut and sure cuts a lot and cut the letters out of yellow paper and glue it to the blue paper, so the blue paper will just be a whole piece. I just picked up 127 cards of the perfect shade of blue for $0.04 each!! Unfortuantely, they’re only 3.25″ and the minimum for postcard postage is 3.5″ so i’ll get some yellow cardstock of the proper size. Let me know what you guys think!!

Wow- I’ve never used a Cricut so I don’t know how difficult that will be, but good luck!
I like how you’re putting the website on the bottom edge of the yellow paper.

Yea, i realized after seeing several other save the date designs that I should include our website on there but I didn’t have a good place to put it, especially since it’s password protected. Then, it turned out are blue cards (that would probably be impossible to print on anyway) are too small, so the yellow card will have to allow a border around the blue and I can definitely just stick the yellow into a printer and print the adress on there without having to try to cut it out or anything.
I just noticed that the yellows in the images above don’t match…we’re going for the yellow in the bottom image. It will all come from the same paper so it should all match 🙂

I think the design is cute

I think it’s a nice design but I tried doing something like that with my cricut and it did not work. First, I had to find a font that would connect all the letters and not leave any holes or else you’re stuck gluing tiny pieces of paper so your text is legible( for the O’s, P’s, B’s e’s, etc). Second, the text was too tiny and the cricut couldn’t cut that small of detail. Do you know anyone with a cricut so you can test it first?

The design is cute, but I’m confused about how much work it’ll be. The second image will be printed on the other side of the yellow paper? The only cutting is the frame shape on the back? I’m all for easy as possible, so I would probably get the whole postcard printed very cheaply online, but it wouldn’t have the same texture.

@fourpeass I don’t know of anyone else with a cricut, unfortunately. I’ve thought the text might be too tiny too but we’ll see? I’m hopeful that it will work, if not I’ll just have to design something else.
@bmore For each save the date, I’ll use three pieces of paper, one blue, two yellow. The blue is just going to be plain and i’ll cute the big design out of a yellow piece and I’ll also cut the pretty frame thing out of a piece of yellow paper. I may or may not try to cut the text out of the frame. Since it’s light and yellow, I could probably just print it on there with a printer or stamp it or something. Does that make more sense?
