Pot-o-clover postcards for a wedding


I spent today printing these simple save-the-date cards for my friends Christine and Nate's Irish-themed wedding. I have never made a custom design for something so important as a wedding before so I made the process harder than it needed to be. I was very critical of all my design ideas and ended up dreading the project a little because I was so afraid of letting my friends down (even though they were very easygoing about the whole thing).

When I finally buckled down, committed to a design and began printing, I enjoyed the process as much as ever.

A moment ago, I went to deliver the cards to Christine and Nate and they were so pleased that I have to laugh at myself a little for being a hyper-critical neurotic. The experience turned out so nicely that I hope to have the opportunity to do special custom prints again sometime!

There's nothing like a deadline to make you finish up and decide that's it :)
They turned out great!
