DIY – Postcard Save the Dates – Part 1

My first task was to find a postcard template that looked vintage, or make one.  Oh how I wish this wonderful resource from Blah, Blah, Blahg existed several months ago.

I set out to draw my own.  That didn’t go so well.  Then I tried finding a stamp online, but nothing really said “vintage” to me.  By now we are 2 weeks past the “should have” sent date.  I wondered if I could buy a vintage post card and copy it…then it hit me.  I HAD some vintage postcards.  Earlier this year while helping clean out my grandmother’s house I had picked up a handful of unused Christmas postcards.  Now I just had to find them…..

Here are a few of them.  Aren’t they fun?




Isn’t that just perfect?  So I scanned it in, saved it as a graphic and got started on the front of the card.
