    You got so lucky that they had the premade template! The invites turned out great!

                  They are really nice! I'm worried that my ink jet printer will have the same issue. It was good that you found a print shop that was able to help out.

                    I ended up going to a local print shop because my printer at home wasn't able to handle the 80lbs card stock for the boarding passes. That ended up being really good since they found the ticket enclosures in the right color pre-made for a decent price. (I was going to use one of the BDW templates). Our colors are pool and navy with accents of red and orange (mostly from flowers) so I wanted to stick with those colors.

                    The Gory Details

                    Navy Brochure Enclosures
                    Compass stamp
                    Embossing ink and powder
                    Heat gun (Marvy® Uchida Embossing Heat Tool)
                    Rounder Corner Paper Puncher

                    The outer cover is a navy brochure folder with a single pocket inside. I embossed a compass onto the front and rounded the corners to finish it out. The compass was a stamp I found at Michaels and I used transparent embossing ink & powder.

                    Boarding Passes
                    80lb card stock - natural white (kind of an off-white color)
                    Rotary Trimmer with both a straight edge blade and a perforator blade (Fiskars® Portable Rotary Trimmer)
                    Rounder Corner Paper Puncher
                    Glue Spots - HERMA® Dottoâ„¢ Permanent

                    I used staples to attach the boarding passes to each other and then used glue spots to attach the bottom pass to the enclosure. The Dotto dots dispenser made it super easy with no mess at all.

                    RSVP Envelope - 4bar Pool - Paper Source
                    Invitation Envelope - #10 in natural white (matching the boarding passes)

                    We had the printer print our address on the RSVP envelopes and the back flap of the outer envelopes. We used our printer at home to address the envelopes to our guests.

                    The whole time I was working on this project I regretted not just ordering something from a catalog. Now that they are done and out there, I am SOOO glad I did this!! Thanks to everyone here for the encouragement and ideas. I couldn't have done this without you!
