Faux Wood Burned Saved The Dates + Hand Printed Envelopes = Love
Our save the dates needed to set the tone and direction for the rest of our wedding stationery. The theme: semi-rustic, semi-elegant, and playful. I knew I wanted a wood grain/wood burned look, and that I also wanted to create a coordinating stamp to use on the envelopes. After admiring these invitations I was sold on the font and the rest just fell into place. I created this design originally for our wedding invitations, but as the planning progressed (and the plans changed) I decided this design was better suited for our Save the Dates and a new invitation design was in order. I designed and hand carved the stamp into the Speedball Speedy Carve block and hand pressed onto the white envelopes using a black printmaking ink available at your local art store.
The Albemarle font family comes in Albemarle, Albemarle Swash and Albemarle End Swash. This made it easy to customize and embellish the layout to be exactly what I wanted. Free download is available on fonts101.com or you can purchase it on myfonts.com.
