New Save the Date

April 7, 2010

so back in december my cousin asked me to make some special save the dates for her.  she was visiting her fiance's family in ireland and wanted to hand some out while they were there.
since it was a small amount, we were able to do something a little more special:
i used this beautiful champagne shimmer paper as the background.
the layer that i printed on was a vanilla cardstock with a black inked border.
to tie in eamonn's irish heritage,  i used an image of a celtic love knot drawn by my sister cathy.  i embellished this with some pearls.

now that she has decided on a color for her bridesmaid dresses, she asked me to make something a bit more simple for a larger amount of out of town guests.
i found this more intricate knot design and created a save the date that could be professionally printed.
i love that we could stay with the same design but make it work for two different budgets!
