A few weeks ago, we took a road trip to Arizona for a couple of special occasions. It’s been a while since we’ve spent that many hours in a car together, and we were so excited to spend it planning out future posts and upcoming projects and activities. We even made these cards along the way for a happy couple and newborn baby.

We attended the wedding of our friends, Abby and Danny and made this card for the Bride and Groom. We gave it a classic yet whimsical feel using a gold background and the couple’s new shared initial on the envelope. Adding prints and textures creates interest. This love bird sticker was the perfect touch to complete the look.

Color coordinate the gift wrapping to your homemade card. This polka dotted bag adds another whimsical pattern to the overall look, and we topped it off with an over-sized bow. While on the road, we got creative with our limited time and photography needs. Photos were taken on the leather seats of the car and in this case, the gas station floor.

A funky card is unexpected for such a sweet baby girl. This houndstooth pattern mixed with bright colors and mismatched letters is an unlikely pairing. Bird stickers, which came from the same package as the wedding love birds, were added as a nod to a common theme in her nursery.

We keep paper scraps, leftover stickers, and recycled gift wrap to always have materials on hand for this type of project. Keeping blank cards and envelopes in stock makes it easy for you to Do It Yourself even “on the road”.
