So, I printed our save the date's on business cards and mounted a small magnet to the back!
Trouble is, now I don't know how to mail them...
Should I just stick them, loose, into a bigger envelope?
Should I mount them, somehow, onto a card or cardstock?
I don't want to spend an awful lot... but I don't want it to look lame.

Advice please!!

And just for visual reference, here is the artwork from the card! (it takes up the whole card, but I left a wide border on it so I could edit it for printing)

Oh, and for anyone following my invitation mini-saga, here is the finished version (front and back) (The patterned paper was from my collection. Convo me if you would like any additional information on it and I will look to see who made it!)

And, just for fun, here's the RSVP (I *THINK* it will be a postcard when all said and done) I also want to change the wording from "circle your choice" to something else. Haven't decided what, yet... any help is appreciated!

COMMENTS AND CRITICISM WELCOME!! It's your advice that has gotten me where I am with these!!

I love it - all of it! I wish I would have done something like that for my wedding.

By the way, on your invite, should it say "...as THEY celebrate wedded bliss..." rather than "...as the celebrate wedded bliss..." ?

Love it all, think it is adorable.  The illustration is too cute and the reply card is wonderful

And I would say attach the magnet to a piece of cardstock that fits the envelope.

Should I put another magnet on the back of the cardstock?
Or maybe sew on a little pocket?
I guess I could use those double sided sticky dots for scrapbooking too...

And thanks!

I agree on attaching it to some card that fits the envelope.

I love it, so whimsical!

But it's "hearts, hands, and forevers" not "forever's".  The 's is for possessions, not plurals.

Big collection of Kenmore presser feet to swap/trade/sell!!  Ruffler foot, etc.  Please PM for details!

These are FANTASTIC!
They do sell magnetic size for business cards... my fiance buys them for his cards for his store... we were finding them at Walmart... staples or something like that MIGHT have them too!!!

*We are in the card planning stages as well right now we're getting married Aug 14th 2010 and he wants to do save the date cards... so I've got to come up with something now
