I already wanted to do the 'guest seating tree' with a photo hanging on the base of our initials carved in a tree - and I also wanted to theme the cake topper with a wood grain base and with the groom holding a wooden heart with our initials on it! So this Save the Date would work in perfect with our theme! Also because it would be one sided I could sew the fabric on the back of it!
My one concern is that I already had an idea for my Save the Date cards, I have already purchased stamps for it (as I have a 'Stampin' Up' Club that I go to every month) But those Save the Dates were going to be really tricky to make as they involved a spinning wheel of photos on the inside that would show pictures of Ben and I through a hole that was punched on the face of the card, and that was held together by a brad!
So maybe these Save the Dates are easier, and fit the theme really well! And I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of the stamps I purchased any way, even if i don't make those Save the Dates with them.
Here is the one I just made:
