I am currently in the process of printing and assembling the invitation suite for Kate and Chris’s wedding, and I wanted to share the Save the Date that I created for them.
Kate did some research and decided that she liked the current trend of the photobooth strip-style pictures for a Save the Date card. I came up with the idea of making the photobooth strip a removable magnet instead of just printing the images on the postcard. Keeping her colors (green and chocolate brown) and her theme (apples!) in mind, I whipped up the postcard portion of it in Photoshop:
Then, we set up a quick little faux-photobooth area in front of the living room curtains and my husband did a photoshoot with the two of them. We chose the four cutest poses and assembled them into the magnet:
The magnets were attached to the postcards with a very interesting glue that worked way better than I imagined. I tried a million different things before finding this little guy:
With the magnet attached, the finished product looked like this:
I used Gumdrop Green envelopes and printed the return address on the back flap in chocolate brown. They were a huge hit with the guests! I hope they’re even more impressed with the invitations .
