Ok-I really couldn't resist the title for this post. Sorry. It is Friday night, after all!

So, anyhow, check out our save the date post cards I designed for my wedding! They are hot off the press-I just picked them up this evening. I really am in love with the design and am so glad that I stuck to one of my original ideas instead of convincing myself to go with something more traditional and less corky. There are so many things about this wedding that are non-traditional, including our actual relationship (Freddy and I are 11 {and some change} years apart), so hell-why not be corky and create something that fits you as a couple instead of going along with the norm? Am I right!?!? 

So you might be wondering the reasoning and story behind this out-of-the-norm post card design... Well, my fiance is going to school for electronics and is crazy about anything and everything electronic related, hence the robots.  Also-there is a slight history of robot building that runs in my family. My uncle has actually built several robots from scratch. The barn in the middle represents the barn that Freddy and I are to be wed in. The separate hills with us upon them represents us as being apart and trying to reach each other. Once we are wed and it is time for the thank you cards to go out, I plan on designing a cute little card where we are shown side by side, holding hands and having finally reached each other to 'share our love'. I know. Corny. :) 

Everything about this design was created by hand which is something that I hardly ever see that, in itself, is special. It is unique in it's aesthetic and no-one has ever used this design before and for this reason, it holds a lot of value to me. The line work was drawn with a black Precise V5 Extra Fine Rolling Ball pen. The color that you see was achieved by using a cheap children's water color set in combination with Wilton icing coloring pigments

Oh-and I couldn't be more please with the print quality, either! The post cards are really pretty close to being as vibrant as you see in the picture. This is the second time now that I have used Seemless Design for my post card print needs and I am very pleased with both experiences-so check them out! Also, I forgot to mention, they have a really quick turn around. These 180 cards were printed in less than 24 hours and only cost me $32.00 after taxes. Way to go Seemless!
