    I finally finished my invites last week and sent them out!

    I borrowed a lot of inspirations and ideas from so many brides here...thank you to everyone who has helped me with these! I hope I too can inspire someone with mine!

    I bought the pocketfolds from cards and pockets. they were great to work with and they also have color samples that you can order. I am glad I did this because once I got the samples I changed my mind on the colors I wanted to use. I highly recommend getting some samples before you order. I also got the outer white envelopes and RSVP envelopes from cards and pockets. They do sell pre-cut mats but I decided to purchase their metallic card stock and cut the mats on my own. It worked just fine doing it that way and now I have extra cardstock for my other projects

    I made all of my designs in powerpoint and printed everything at home...it was probably much cheaper this way!

    In the end I made 50 invites and I think they cost about $3.50 or so each to make (not including postage) so not too bad!

                    I am in love with your invites!! I might have to borrow the idea of adding different color boards to the inserts.
