I am considering doing these boarding pass save-the-dates myself, but I am VERY worried that they will look "home made" if I cut them out myself. I am not much of a DIY or artsy person and when I try to do things myself they end up looking like a kindergartener made them. I don't have a steady hand, so that worries me (I even have bad handwriting.)
I designed these STDs myself from a mixture of templates and ideas I have seen here on this forum (sorry that I don't know or remember who exactly to give credit to). I think they still need some tweaking, but if I can somehow do these myself and have them come out looking decent, I'm willing to sacrifice a true designers work to save a few bucks.
My wedding planner said they need another pop of color to make them stand out, and she said that the seashell looks like the Shell Gasoline logo. So I'll probably change the seashell. But I don't know if I want to add another color because I'm a minimalist and don't want it to look too busy. My wedding colors are cream and celedon. It makes choosing print colors difficult, but I think the table settings will be pretty. So here's my STD:
The word file I will be printing is white, but for the jpeg, I made the background that beige color because I will be printing on beige or cream cardstock.
Does anyone have any suggestions for cutting these out? I don't want to buy a whole bunch of expensive cutting tools just for this, because then I may as well have someone else do it. Has anyone tried to do this at home and found it to be too difficult? I'm considering doing a few trial runs if I can get just a few pieces of cardstock instead of having to buy a whole ream.
I will upload my template for anyone who wants it. TIA for anyone willing to give me tips or advice!
