My oh my, I’m seriously in love with these save the dates. Created by Sarah of August Blume, Beth and Michael’s modern and whimsical save the dates combine beautiful lettering from Feast Calligraphy, chevron stripes, a fun interactive layout, and cut-out details. So cute!
From Sarah: I had the pleasure of designing a save the date card (and getting extra creative) for photographer Beth Morgan and her beau, Michael, for their spring 2012 wedding. With a palette of teal, plum, fuchsia & slate (and the occasional red heart), we mixed their “Mississippi is for Lovers” theme with custom silhouettes and a muted chevron pattern.
We wanted a unique, interactive save the date to set the tone for their April wedding and to get guests excited about traveling to the South. The couple met and fell in love in Mississippi so we included little-known-facts about the couple and their state on the back of the trifold card with a teal watercolor background.
The last panel features a mini glassine envelope holding a hang tag so guests can mark their calendar! The calligraphy was penned by the very talented Alissa of Feast Calligraphy. The cards were digitally printed on solar white cover stock and each Mississippi was individually cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
I love it! Thanks Sarah!

I love this! It’s so cute and unique – I can’t decide if my favorite part is the state shaped cut-out, or the mini glassine envelope and heart sticker.
