Wondering how I got the chevron-like feature on either side of the date?
I went into Overlays, Arrows and selected one of the arrow points (missing the tail).I dragged the corners to make it the exact size of the other squares (tip: if you hold down the shift key and then drag the arrow, you can custom size anything!) Then, using the other features of Text, additional Geometric Overlays (for the Yellow and Blue), I created the rest of the announcement.Just remember though, not to make your lettering too small or else when you print it out it won't be readable. I had to go back and increase the size of some of my lettering.Finally, I found a great source for envelopes to fit these announcements. You can create, print and have these ready to send out in just a day, rather than waiting up to 2 weeks for them to be created and sent to you from a printing company.It only costs about .10 cents per sheet for printing, so this is really super cheap.This ends up being a 5 x 5 square announcement (you will need a cutting tool to trim off the excess).What better occasion to bring together your nearest and dearest for a party!Before you even start thinking about graduation invitations, it’s important that you know exactly what you are interested in.Amazon sells packages of 50 5-1/2 square invitation envelopes for shipping from Rile Designs. Just make sure you get your envelopes ordered first!!If you're like me and you don't enjoy spending astronomical prices for things you can make yourself, just do it.
