For this save the date design I actually have Facebook to thank for it, Kristin went to middle school with one of my high school friends and the day the friend request was accepted Kristin was able to see one of my blog postings prompting her to email me. I think everyone can agree that the world just got a whole lot smaller thanks to Facebook.
When it came time to build the flamingo I actually went to the website of the wedding location, I wanted to make sure the flamingo I designed was 100% accurate. I used two colors of glitter for the flamingo, clear for the wing and black for the beak. We continued the use of the flamingo on the return address and for the custom stamps. I LOVE this design it totally works and sets the tone for a truly fabulous upcoming wedding:) Next up, the wedding invitations........stay tuned!

I wanted the design to have an old world feel of Ireland to it which is why I choose to use a vintage elegant frame with scrolls, to continue the feel of Ireland I used a font called Keltic. Eileen wanted her Save The Date to have a little bit of sparkle so clear glitter was applied to the Celtic Knot which darkened it just a bit. Most people think an envelope is just used to hold the invitation but who says that you can't make your guests addresses a part of your design.....I LOVE using the outside of an envelope to give a peak of what's inside. When you send invitations you want your guests to have a sense of anticipation, by including their names into your design really gives them the feeling that they matter. I say this all the time.......it's the little details....those are what will make your event go from nice to extraordinary.
Eileen mailed her Save The dates last week I was extra excited because this is the first time one of my designs was going "Down Under"......I received an email from her last night saying everyone LOVED THEM and how the design has inspired a future tattoo.......which is a first for me. Next up..........are the Wedding Invitations looking forward to another laughter filled design session with Eileen, Elizabeth and the FAMOUS Shirl.........can't wait:)
