saving the date part 2

As promised, here are some pictures of the save-the-date cards that were sent to our guests this week. The fiance and I worked so so so hard on these, and I hope our guests appreciate them as much as I do!
Here's a closeup of the front page.
It opens by rotating the pages to the side.
All 150 assembled!
With the envelope.
Ready to be mailed!
If you can see in the pictures, we embossed every flourish pattern and used linen textured cardstock to add some texture. I designed the cards in Adobe Illustrator and we had them printed at a local printshop in the UP for less than half the price of getting them done at Fedex Kinko's or OfficeMax (we checked). I'll do a full cost & materials breakdown when I get back from Boston!
