www.mygrafico.com. I purchased the Chalkboard Invites from Blackleaf Studios and got to work. Here is the finished product, all print work. The font I used is called Pastel and I found that on www.dafont.com. I paired the invitation with brown paper bag envelopes to give it the look/feel of a chalkboard.
My next invitation is still a work in progress, but I can show you a sample of what I'm making. It is a wedding and it will take place on a beach at dusk. All I had for inspiration was the above information, as well as the colors yellow and orange. Again, inspired to use the chalkboard theme, I decided on a palm tree, beach chairs, and sand background. I love to work with graphics and my program of choice, believe it or not, is always Microsoft Word. I began by looking for a palm tree image (I found one I liked in MS Word clipart), I then searched for a sand graphic that would work well on a dark chalkboard background, as well as beach chairs with the color scheme the bride-to-be requested. I found them both here. Below is a sample of what I've come up with so far. I will post the finalized invitation once I'm done putting it all together.
