I majored in Graphic Communications in college and have always enjoyed graphic design and editing. Since I don’t get to do much design work at my current job I like to get creative and do things myself every chance I get.

This is a 5 x 7 flat card, printed on flat matte paper and mailed in an envelope. I always use White House Custom Colour for my printing. They have tons of paper and finishing options, do great work and I love their packaging!
I edited the photo (cropping and changed to black and white) in Photoshop and laid out the text in InDesign. I used all sorts of different fonts, a few basic graphics, an engagement photo and included all the necessary info in a little story.
My father-in-law retired then turned 60 just a few weeks later. Mark and I decided to throw him a surprise birthday/retirement party. The theme was easy – The Beatles. Everything centered around The Beatles. The invitations were titles of Beatles songs.

My parents threw Mark and I a Fall/Tailgate themed engagement party shortly after we got engaged. My parents did everything for the party but they did let me design the invitations!
Our wedding colors were pink, so I had to add a pop of pink to the football!
New Address/Holiday Cards
Since we moved right before the holidays I decided to combine our new address announcements with our holiday cards. I think they turned out pretty cute and got the point across!
Now maybe people will stop calling for our new address!
I designed this card in Photoshop (even thought something like this should be done on indesign, I don’t care I just love Photoshop!). If I’m not doing the printing myself, I’ll order from White House Custom Colour. I wanted these cards to be cut to the rounded rectangular shape so I chose one of their boutique templates. These cards were flat and printed 5×7 on Premium Matte paper.
