I hope this unique save-the-date will inspire my Jewish readers to take their cards to the next level. The customer request I received was for a "save the date" to send to her guests for her grandson's bar mitzvah. She wanted a card she could hand write that said "save the date" and had a Torah. I tried to take it to the next level with my design. Here is a little tutorial. I hope you enjoy!
