Saving Our Own Date!!

I've designed many save the dates in my day and both Duncan and I have put hours into producing other people's magnets. We love making them unique and perfect for each uniquely awesome couple. It's great to contribute in a very small way to so many people's weddings and I think doing so made making our own save the dates that much more special. It was our turn!Save the Date with Round MagnetsI was worried that I'd never be able to come to a decision on a design for myself, but I was pleasantly surprised to fall in love with the first one I created. After a few minor tweaks, font tests and sign off from the groom to be, the card design was complete! We wanted to do something that we hadn't done for anyone else so we made the magnets fabric covered instead of the usual paper with the plastic cover. Round Fabric MagnetsI used glassine envelopes and round mailing labels from Paper Source and made my own stickers to match the card. I cut a purple piece of paper to slip inside the envelope so the back of the postcard wouldn't show through. Save the DateI used a clear adhesive made especially to seal the glassine envelopes. I should note that I don't suggest using these pretty envelopes for anything other than paper. They are technically mailable, but some of the magnets broke free from them on their way to their recipients (so sad).Save the Date with MagnetsI added a 64 cent stamp and a clear return address label and they were ready to go!Saving the DateWe also created a Save the Date Video for our website. I hope you like it!

Yay!!! Loving the color combo. It's a bummer to hear about those glassine envelopes letting loose - those can be tricky. Wow. It's so real now. Haha. You're really getting married! So exciting!
