AHHHH It’s my first DIY post on wedding bee!!
I have finished and ordered a sample of 10 free Save-The-Date Cards to see how they come out. I am envisioning a vintage-travel themed wedding (once upon time before I went on wedding bee, I thought this was an original idea ). I wanted to send out STD postcards, however I turned them into a magnet because I am too afraid they will get lost.
I am ordering all of them from vistaprint.
I have also attached my wedding inspiration board of things of ways I want to execute the theme.
Tell me your thoughts!! Any additional thoughts/suggestions are much appreciated.

@MsJ26: I made them in photoshop. I basically taught myself photoshop by playing with different features, doing several online tutorials, and just googling how to “whatever i am looking to do.” What are you thinking of doing MsJ26? I would totally be down to help you, I love this stuff!!

@Schrutebeets – I do not have photoshop but I have iphoto and was told I could possibly create something like this on there? I gotta play with it and see what I can do. I basically want to have an engagement picture on the STD cards and send it out as a magnet as well. We are having a destination wedding at a winery so I was thinking something rustic/elegant feel to it. I guess I should decide on my theme first . Your post inspired me to create my own! 🙂

@MsJ26: I have Iphoto as well but I mainly use it for just photostorage. I am sure you can manipulate it a little bit, depending on what you want to do. I know there are also free programs out there….a few good ones are:
Open Canvas (used through yahoo)
http://www.gimpshop.com/ (uses the interface of photoshop)
Adobe PhotoDeluxe (predessor to photoshop…you can search for a free download)
picnik (probably one of the most basic, you could start with that and see if it does what you are looking for)
You can definitely do it on your own!!! Save your $$ 🙂
