So, I'm getting married in November to the love of my life Smiley  I'm currently writing up my PhD thesis and in order to save my sanity i decided we needed Save the Date cards!  I made the design on photoshop (through trial and error mainly as i'm a graphics noob!) and then printed it onto some card i'd tea-stained, then punched the edges with a border punch. 
Also i made a stamp just using foam and an old plastic tub to glue it to.  I used the stamps on the envelopes that i'm going to post the cards in Cheesy

Our wedding is having a sort of victoriana/steampunk and peacock theme, so i was kind of hoping to capture that with my save the date's Cheesy

These are the envelopes, i used a copper and goldy coloured ink to create two images. 

These are the save the date cards Cheesy  I've blacked out the location on the photos to preserve privacy Smiley

This one shows the tea-staining best i think:

Wish the pictures did them justice.  I took them in my lizards viv as it's the brightest light in here by far Smiley

C&C welcome <3 thanks for looking
