wedding save the dates {rhiannon + brandon}

I was so happy when my second cousin contacted me about helping them design the save the dates for their upcoming wedding this fall. They had an idea of how they wanted them to look, and I was able to create the save the date that they were envisioning.

The save the date, when folded up, was a 4" x 6" card (able to fit into a standard photo envelope for mailing). To hold the pieces that were folded in together, I created "save the date" stickers to be applied in the center. Also on the front, were male and female hiker graphics to represent Rhiannon and her fiancé, Brandon. The couple loves hiking together, and wanted to incorporate that into a fun save the date.

They wanted to use recycled paper for these, so I was able to find a 100% recycled heavy-duty brown construction paper to fit with the theme. I printed these on my wide format Epson photo printer, since they were 12" wide by 4" tall. For the stickers, I used Avery's glossy white 2" round labels, so it was easy to drop my design into their template for printing. I printed their photo on premium double-sided matte photo paper. These were then glued onto the brown paper in the center.

I was thrilled with how these super cute save the dates came together and happy that Rhiannon and her mother loved them, too! Best wishes to the future bride and groom!!
