My friend never seemed to understand what I wanted and I felt bad for all the changes but at the same time I wanted to scream because they were not getting done.
In addition, when I went to print them out at Kinko's they only do it in a plain card stock with a sort of glossy finish, I wanted more of a traditional invitation paper, you know, maybe textured with a "softer" finish.. so I ended up buying the paper and printing them myself. My poor FI just didn't know how to handle me this weekend. Now I am sure the font is too small for my grandma to read and I don't dare ask my friend to change it again becuase he might just kill me!
I also ordered free magnets from visaprint to put in the with STD cards. Do you think that is overkill? I was thinking that since they were free, why not, then maybe I wouldn't worry so much about people tossing the card aside and forgetting about it....
So here they are, Sorry if the picture size is too big or too small, this is my first time uploading a picture on this site.
Second - you STD looks awesome If you don't want to commit on a color, did you try the watermark ?
Like, select a nice pic of a beach or landscape you like, and make it very shallow ? If you work with office 07, it's so easy : you select the picture, go to picture tools, recolor (on the left hand side) and select watermark (second row, third one). One photoshop I'm sure it's as easy.
That way you keep a nice landscaping background, but with natural colors - and you can pick your color later on.

I made three slides very quickly so that you get an idea what I mean.
