    Wow those look great! I have been going back and forth on if I should attempt my own invites myself or not and you have just given me the inspiration to do them! I just ordered a few samples from cards & Pockets and I am waiting for those in the mail! (I want to be sure I get my colors right!)

    thank you too for posting which fonts you used! that is very helpful!

    Anyway...few questions for you if you don't mind!

    Looks like you printed these yourself on your own printer?

    Where did you get the templates to get the sizing correct on each insert?

    thanks!

      I forgot to mention that part. This was very frustrating at first. I used plain printing paper as a template to practice on first. I cut a couple pieces for each one. I probably went thru about 10 for each one to get it right. You have to play around with the page setup and print set up. I started out with the measurement of the actual cards and then went from there. I think it would have been a lot easier if I wasn't trying to get the flowers to bleed of the sides of the paper.

      Hope this helps.

      I wrote down a couple of measurements, but not sure how that will work out if you don't use the same form

      Let me know if you need help once you get started
