Save the Date

Hey there...I realize this isn't Valentine-y...or punny for that matter...but I thought I would post a scan of the save-the-date for the wedding.

The cards are 6" x 4.25". I am making our invitations out of 12x12 sapphire stardream cardstock. The invitations will be 6"x6" square folders with an enclosure pocket on the inside left panel. The save-the-dates were made from the scrap left from the 12x12 cardstock once I folded and cut it all to size.

I printed the save-the-dates, invitations and response cards in dark chocolate brown ink all on one sheet of cream paper and cut them all to size as well. The lobster is a stamp I found at a local craft store...although I realize now, I could have just printed it myself on the paper. :)

Very nice, of course now you know you've peaked my curiousity and you will have to post pics of th invite as well ;)

I always think of romance when I think of Lobsters anymore, ever since that line in Friends where Pheobe tells Rachel that she's Ross's Lobster.

Ok...A) I totally get you, Madretz, about not wanting to part with the paper...but it took me a long time to find paper that was the exact shade as my favorite color blue: the color of the ocean in New England at about 3:00pm on a bright summer day, that I figured it was worth it to use it as my wedding paper :)

and B) I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Ragged pulled out one of my FAVORITE Friends quotes. Oddly enough, I never caught on to the lobster/Friends thing until a couple of days ago. The reason we have a lobster on the card is because we are having a clam-bake with lummy lobsters :)
