I used Microsoft Publisher to make a mock-up. I knew what size envelope I wanted and that I wanted to use 8.5" x 11" cardstock, so I just played around with sizing until I found something that worked. I believe the invite was 5 1/8" by 6 1/2" when closed. When open it was 10 1/4" by 6 1/2" and the flap was 2 inches deep.
For the inserts, the postcard RSVP was 3" x 5" because that's the smallest the post office will accept. The remaining inserts were also 5" wide, but I'm not sure of the exact height at the moment. Again, I just played around with rectangles in Publisher until I got the sizing right. Hope that helps! I'd also just do a search on Google for DIY pocketfolds, there is a ton of information out there!
