They just went out! Signed, Sealed, Stamped and Delivered! My latest fun project: Save the Dates for a sure to be fabulous New Year’s Eve wedding.
This couple wanted to get the party started right. So I came up with a design that would highlight the New Year’s Eve themed picture they had taken. The bride loved it. So with the help of my assistants, we cut, scored, hole punched, cut some more, adhered, stuck, bent and tied… creating a total of 233 Save the Dates !
Special thanks to Helen, Mary Kay, Kim and Paula for all their hard work!! This was definitely a team project.
Here’s a video of Kim and Paula creating the faux wax stamps. for anyone who is interested in seeing how it’s done, this will give you the idea.
A lot of love and care went into planning this “postal experience “. My goal was to not only create a lot of visual “wow” factor but to provide guests with a sense of anticipation. I want them to be thinking, “I wouldn’t miss this for the world !”
Here’s what I hope will excite them as they pull this “piece of gold” out of their mail boxes:
First I hope they notice their names carefully lettered in black on the beautiful gold shimmer envelope in the style of my new calligraphy font. ( It will be released on Myfonts.com this June, 2011 !). Hopefully they’ll also take note of the themed custom stamp from zazzle.com.
The party horn on the flap along with the return address printed in the matching lettering style was another detail meant to suggest something fun inside.
Once the black damask ribbon is untied the secret quickly starts to unfold.
The gold glitter wax seal sitting in the middle of the bride and groom’s names is there to suggest a little glitz and glamour befitting the occassion.
Pulling it off and venturing into the final layer, they’ll ooh and ahh at the beautiful picture of this darling couple, while reading about their upcoming nuptials.
I can’t imagine anyone not immediately marking their calendars for a very special New Year’s Eve wedding! How would you feel if you received this in the mail?
