    Hi All,
    Now that I have finished designing my STD's I am thinking about invite design. So I am back to my lifeline, BDW, for advice. (Please forgive the bad photoshop work, I am at work so I had to do it fast when inspiration struck.)

    I found these SOOO cute STD's that I want to turn into a pocketfold invite with of course some modifications. Here is the STD:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    So my thought I would change the matte color to orange and line around the picture to pink. The text around it would have our saying "a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step ~Lao Tzu" And the bottom would have our names, date and location.

    Then because there isn't a lot of space to put text I was going to set a layer of vellum over the top, not attached to the invite, printed with the more traditional text/information like this:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    Then the inserts, which still need some work, would look something like this:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    And then the pocketfold would be sand colored and look kinda like this minus the pink ribbon and of course in the sand color (back side is on the left):
    Click the image to open in full size.

    Then instead of the ribbon we would seal them up with clear, maybe orange, wax and an old fashioned M stamp. Kinda like this:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    Finally we would place them in a clear envelope so the monogram on the backside of the pocket fold would show through. Might even put a bit of confetti in there to give it that pop. Something like this but with different confetti:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    *whew* Wow that was a lot to get out. So am I crazy? What is way to over the top? Carla

      I love it. I wouldn't put the confetti in though. Accomodations is spelled wrong in the second one. :)

        I'm not artsy, so its hard for me to visualize what it would be like. I do love the STD inspiration! I would do a sample run and then post so we (I) can see :)

          LOL Don't worry I will but it may take me a bit to make the actual template. Those were just some quick images I threw together in photoshop when I had the idea. Plus I promised SandDune a AHR invite template first.

            Sounds good! I might borrow that STD design from you - I really love it!
