Making my own Save the Date cards
After accepting Mr. B’s proposal, I just had to get started on some wedding projects! First thing we did was find the right venue for us, which took quite a bit of searching and looking, but eventually we found the perfect place, an old mill that had a licence to conduct civil ceremonies, and which you could hire out for the whole weekend and included accommodation for all your guests. Once we had booked the venue and the registrar I got busy with my first wedding project, making the save the date cards! This was really fun, and I knew I wanted them to be like old fashioned circus tickets, so hit Pinterest and searched away for some inspiration. There were loads of good ideas on Pinterest, and I took inspiration from a few in particular and then got to work designing my own cards on GIMP. I printed them on heavy brown card and then used a circular hole punch to punch out the corners. I even used a needle to mimic the perforated edge of the ticket stub. We have decided on a small wedding so it didn’t take too long as I only had about 30 of these to make!
