To answer questions about my cute little announcement--
1. How did you make it, with paper or is it all digital? Photoshop? If so, how did you print it? I'd love to know your steps if you'd share! -Bobbi
This is all digital. I created it in Photoshop, getting my inspiration from other designers I found online. To print it, I made sure it was 4x6 and then simply went to Snapfish.com and had them printed as if they were photographs. It meant that they were on photo paper instead of lovely, heavy cardstock, but that was what we could afford for the quantities we wanted to make.
2. Where in the world did you find that great b/w background? i love it! very bold! -Jodie
I have had this set of digital scrap papers from Scrapgirls.com, here. They are damask patterns that can be customized, but for this project, I went with the straight black and white original file.
(I was directed to these papers from another blogger I stalk, Danielle T.)
3. How did you print it to maintain the bold color? Or was it an emailed announcement? -Melanie
As I said, I just decided to print the whole thing as if it was a photograph, and so it really ended up looking just like this! I mailed them in red vellum envelopes, just to add that final touch.
Thanks for asking, all!
