Save the Date Cards

I ordered the photos for the Save the Dates on Monday.  I went with PhotoWorks because I wanted them in the 3.5x5 size and they were the only company I could find that still offered that size!  Also, they are currently having a sale on 3.5x5 and 4x6 photos -- $0.10 a piece.  Plus, you get free shipping on your first order.  So, I spent $7.50 for 75 prints.  :)

I placed the order for the magnets today.  I went with Oriental Trading because they were the cheapest I found (by far!) and they had good reviews.  I will have to cut the sheets into the right sizes.  They're 8.5x11 sheets, so I can get 5 STD magnets per sheet.  It's a little extra work, but it's definitely worth it over ordering magnets pre-cut.  They're WAY more expensive.  I also ordered some double sided tape dispensers for the pocketfold invitations because they were really reasonable (and I will need them soon -- saved the additional shipping costs!). 

Since I'll be able to get started on the STD magnets soon, I thought I should figure out the cards for them to be attached to.  This is what I came up with:

[The front of the card.]

[The inside of the card.]

If you can't read the card, I've put a little poem along with the important information:

Our day is fast approaching,

And we can hardly wait.
So, put this magnet on your fridge,
And be sure to Save the Date!

I printed them on some ivory/beige cardstock that I have from the packs of cardstock for the invitation backers. That purchase definitely worked out great! I'm printing the cards 2 to a sheet. Again, I'll have some cutting to do, but it's cheaper than buying cards!

So, what do you think?
