Save-the-Date Postcards

For my fall 2011 wedding, I created a truly unique set of save-the-date cards. Brian and I spent months collecting vintage postcards featuring cities and landscapes to match our “Ozark mountain romance” theme. I then spent weeks hand-embroidering each one. The result was a memorable piece that made our wedding special and that garnered media attention for our blog. The project was subsequently published in the book Design: Paper: A Seductive Collection of Alluring Paper Designs, the international craft magazine Mollie Makes Issue 14 in English, French, and Russian editions, and on the popular wedding blog Green Wedding Shoes.
