Magic Save-the-date
Tuesday, September 06, 2005
Finally!




Thanks to fellow w@wie Vannie, I finally did our save-the-date card. This is inspired by Magic: The Gathering, one of the many interests Mr. Frost and I share.

Originally, I posted a save-the-date card with our favorite picture. Mr. Frost and I realized that, to do justice to our inspiration, we have to use an art. "If we're gonna do it, we might as well do it right," were the words of Mr. Frost the wise.

I also had to use the latest design of multicolor cards, this taken from the Kamigawa block, the only multicolor card in the Betrayers of Kamigawa set. Click here to see the previous studies I made. Just for the record, I reeeeeeeeeally enjoyed doing them. And no matter how crappy some people may think they are, I AM SO PROUD OF THEM!

Here are samples of actual cards.












Will be having it printed on photo paper then we're good to go. :) Thanks to Simon Woo for reminding me about the border color of dual color cards.

Acknowledgement goes to our good friend Tim Burton for the images taken from his movie "Nightmare Before Christmas." Come to think of it, our wedding will be held before Christmas. So that means...

Man, we are one weird couple.
