Save-the-Date Part II

Once we had the wonderful map from Laura in hand, we had to figure out what to do with it. I considered creating a postcard with the map, but I was afraid the pretty little thing would arrive scarred with stickers and postal bar codes. After consulting the designers at Crane, we decided on a classic z-fold design.
We worked with Laura on the save-the-date text (I love her whimsical calligraphy) and she created an icon for the front of the save-the-date. We then sent all the files to Crane to be printed on 100 percent cotton Museo paper.

A week later, the save-the-dates arrived and we loved the final result.

I wanted to wrap something around the z-fold for presentation, so it was the perfect opportunity to bring in our primary wedding color: butter yellow. Armed with Offray satin ribbon and glue dots, I created simple ribbon wraps for the save-the-date cards.


I addressed the envelopes (more on that in another post), affixed the pretty boat stamp and they were ready for the Post Office!

Love your Save the Dates! The idea of the boating stamps was perfect for Lake Placid! And I noticed Mr. Bliss did a GREAT job on the ring :-)
