Fall themed Save the Dates

by Caryn Gehrke
(Ingleside, IL)

These were created using Bazzil cardstocks and Cricut cartridges. The cream color paper was sent through the printer to have our names, date and location printed on them. I then added the die cuts of "Save the Date", the branch and leaf (which has the date written on it).

The most difficult part was the frame. I couldn't find pattern paper that I liked, so I decided to make my own. I used small stamps with our intials (C+J) and stamped across the entire page. This took FOREVER, but the custom look was well worth it! The frame was cut also using a Cricut die cut.

I experimented with different types of glue. I'm actually a scrapbooker more than a card designer, so my works of art are normally placed under page protectors. I found spray adhesive worked the best to ensure the die cuts were fully glued down to the paper. I also used a 3d adhesive square on the leaf to make the date stand out a bit.

Finally, I added a few Swarvorski rhinestones to resemble berries on the branch.
