I am so excited to share my DIY Passport Invites!!  With help from SO many girls on this forum, and Aylee Bits $10 template -- http://www.ayleebits.com/2009/03/09/passport-invitation-template/ -- I am finally ready to put them together and send them out!  I used an orange metallic cardstock from Joann's for the cover and a thicker high-grade printer paper for the inside pages.  I used VistaPrint to create my free reply postcards!  Feel free to ask ANY questions!! The $10 template was the best money I ever spent!!

 

I was thinking about finishing it off with a ribbon around the bind?? I've seen that done a lot and think it makes a nice finishing touch.  What do you think?

I love, love, love the postcards! I don't have advanced enough skills at vistaprint, everything I try to make looks so boring and simple. Any advice/suggestions on how to get them look that pretty?

Primavera:  The postcard I bought is actually a design they offer!!! I just added the text!!  You can search "palm tree" once you are under the postcard designs...and it should show up?? or even maybe under the "travel" category??  Good luck!! Let me know if you have trouble!  THere are quite a few beach designs!

Woohoo! I found them, thanks! I guess I have only been looking at the magnet designs earlier. That is great! Thanks!

Here comes my first question (lol), how do you rotate the text on the postcard? When I click rotate it only does it 180 degrees and not just a little bit if you know what I mean?

For the design I made, the text was already rotated that way...If you are trying to do it on a different one, I'm really not sure you can.  Sorry!! I hope this helped??

Hmm...weird, It is the same design but the text is straight and not aligned with the the picture. It doesn't seem like I can change it either. Hmm...maybe they have changed it. I saw other designs where the text was diagonal like that though. I really liked that design, but I guess it is not the end of the world :)
