Kristy + Peter’s DIY Die Cut Save the Dates

Oh man you guys, after moving to our new house on Monday and trying to wrap up some loose ends at our old apartment – not to mention get settled in the new house! – I’m just completely wiped out. Luckily for me, these DIY die cut save the dates from designer Peter Hootman are bringing a smile to my face today! I love the peekaboo effect of the engagement photos behind the cut out letters on the cover. So fun!

From Peter: These are the save the dates I made for our wedding. They went out during Christmas so they had a kinda holiday flare to them with the string lights. I designed them and got the inspiration from some die cut stuff I saw on Pinterest. I wasn’t sure how we were going to actually make them till I found a Silhouette Cameo die cut machine on Amazon.

I ordered one and I ordered the paper and envelops from Paper Source, then I designed and ordered a custom rubber stamp for the back of the envelope.  We had a lot of fun playing with different fonts, but we had to modify a lot of them so they wouldn’t just fall out. It took way more work then I expected and a lot of time to cut out all the letters but it was worth it.
