At the initial meeting with this young couple I knew I would do whatever I could to help them. He proposed to her under a tree on a property near where he grew up in the Northeast. They very adamantly wanted to use a picture of the tree on the response card, and create a vintage look. I had recently acquired PicMonkey for photo editing (a great program) and decided to incorporate the use of my Silhouette Cameo as well. I created the post card.....and it looked pretty decent......but .....as I pinned I realized that the tree would probably look just as good on the invite. The bride to be had informed me she wasn't the fru-fru type gal and the postcard had such a dominating look. Soooo, I put together a prototype invite using the tree in the background. Yep, it was a success. We still used the tree on the front of the response card, but we put it in the invite face down so people could see both the information card and response card when the invitation was opened.
Today we assembled the invites with the lace belly band and some twine (all part of the original idea) - we did decide during the planning process that there needed to be a little more on the front and decided on a monogram - once again done using my Silhouette (I'm telling you I LOVE this machine). This whole project has been great fun and I have learned tons about using PicMonkey and my Silhouette. I'm happy, the brides happy, the mother of the bride is happy, life is good.
