Save the Dates:
I found this really cute Christmas poem that talked about Saving the Date for a 4th of July weekend wedding and I had to use it (thank you if it was a PW bride, I cannot remember where I found it)! I modified the poem to fit us and printed and adhered it to left side of our Christmas cards. I also made DIY magnets for the right side of the Christmas card. My FSIL is a whiz at Photoshop so she made these ordinary pics of us look like we were in a photo booth holding save the date signs (inspiration from a bride on Offbeat Bride blog). Sounds like a lot going on, but people LOVED them! I got so many compliments.
Here's what the poem said:
I bought the digital invitation from Designs Made Easy on Etsy & the pistachio vertico pocketfolds from Cards & Pockets. I made all of the inserts & the wrap around labels using word (tons of trial & error!) and printed everything on my home printer. They were soooo much work but I love how they turned out!!
