For my Save The Date invitations, I knew I wanted to do something unique. I used a few skills in photoshop to create a funny and personal Save the Date magnet to send to guests!
It was a sunny day in West Chester, PA so my fiancee and I got dressed and charged our $100 Kodak camera. My little sister took pictures of us being silly in my parent’s backyard. This was one of my favorite pictures and I thought I could manipulate the image fairly easily:
In Photoshop, I cut-out our bodies from the rest of the picture and background.
Cute! Now it’s time to design the invites. I wasn’t sure what colors I wanted to use for my wedding so I just went with colors that I love…muted teal and purple.
I used layering in Photoshop to input the “hanging off a tree image” onto the off-white box/block.
Once I was happy with the final design, I ordered the oversized magnets from VistaPrint.com. They looked great printed and were a great deal (75 Save the Date invites cost me less than $100 TOTAL)!
I still have my Save the Date magnet on my fridge even though my wedding was over three years ago!
