~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Hey ladies! I haven't posted on here in forever. It has now been a little over 3 months since the wedding, and I am just now writing our thank you cards. I feel a little bad, but life sure gets hectic after getting married, and things like this just get pushed to the side. At any rate, I spent like 8 or 9 hours yesterday writing the notes, and it wasn't so bad. It was actually slightly therapeutic. We have about 20 more to go, and I will finish those either today or tomorrow.
So anyway, here are the details on our thank you cards. We also knew we wanted something custom to match our pocketfold wedding invitations that we sent out. I made our pocketfolds myself, but for some reason it was REALLLY hard for me to make our wedding thank you post cards. I tried and tried for weeks, but I just couldn't get the hang of how to use the software. I knew what I wanted them to look like, but I couldn't figure out how to make them in photoshop.
So....I turned to a graphic designer for help. I sent her pics of my wedding invitations and told her what I wanted. She then made several options, and we selected the one that looked like our invite. We went with the over-sized postcards because we wanted to display more pictures, and have them big enough for people to see the details. I love how it turned out...lol. She was awesome, and we got everything done in just a few days. We then printed them out on Vistaprint.com FOR FREE. We just paid for shipping, but we also ordered other stuff from vistaprint at the same time, so it was no biggie.If anyone is looking for someone to design thank you postcards, I recommend Brenda Ernzen at Forever Clever.

I've posted pictures of the thank you cards and our invitations so you can see how well they match! She used our monogram/bellyband design, and incorporated it into the front of the thank you card. I just love it! Anywho, I will keep you ladies posted on how long it takes us to finish them and get them sent out.
