DIY STD postcard AND INVITE (updated!)
Posted 19 May 2010 - 03:30 PM
I checked out you tube for â€œcartoon tutorialsâ€ and basically taught myself how to use a photograph in Photoshop, and trace over it to create a cartoon. There are several ways of doing this, I did the not-so-perfect way because I liked the way it looked better. Then with the magic of layers, my fianc© made the original photo disappear and made the background striped with our wedding colors (I didnâ€™t really know how to do that). We downloaded â€œfuturisticâ€ fonts from
The only negative feedback Iâ€™ve gotten so far is that my fianc© â€œlooks like Santaâ€ (Heâ€™s blond!) and that I â€œlook like a zombieâ€. HAHA! Whatever, canâ€™t please everyone! I think they look great! Although my nose looks a bit weird and we have no pupilsâ€¦
I am going to do our invitations the same way, so we have a theme. I was thinking of having those be long and skinny with a tri-fold, the response card could actually be attached at the bottom with a perforation, so then people could tear it off then mail it. Does that seem cheesy to anyone? I would LOVE some feedback!
PS. Everyone is really great on this forum!

P.S. may-be you can "color" FI in a bit so he looks less like Santa, and why not throw in a few pupils for the two of you while you're at it!

Also I love the idea of having the RSVP cards attached to the bottom of the invite. We perforated our RSVP cards and people thought it was so professional looking and fun.
