    Hi everyone,

    This is post is way overdue but better late than never! Thanks to all the brides who have inspired me! At first I wasn't even considering a DIY project but after seeing so much creativity here, I figured I could do it too! So after much frustrations and petty arguments with the FI, here are our invitations!

    I know I may have "borrowed" some wording from the other brides here and I just want to say THANKS! to everyone for helping me out!!

    I bought the pockets and invitation mats from Cards and Pockets (great customer service) and the paper from PaperPresentation. The ribbon was from a local trimmings store in the city. The belly bands were made from 1.5 inch strips from brown metallic paper (paper presentation) - cut using a putter cutter from staples.

    The invitation weighed abt 1.8oz so I had to get the 61c stamps and for the RSVP postcard I used the 28c stamps.

    The hardest part was cutting the Accomodation and RSVP cards to the correct size to get the layered look. We were behind schedule when sending them out so at one point we were really pressed for time. But eventually we got 90 of these sent and overall, I'm happy with the way they turned out!

            Hm, not really sure why that other photo wasn't rotated - I fixed it on the comp before uploading... will have to ask the FI to take a look!
