    Thanks ladies!

    I just wanted to detail how I did my template. I used my actual passport for inspiration. I just measured the passport and followed the layout in Photoshop.

    I downloaded fonts I used on the passport on dafont.com. I don't have the font names with me right now. I downloaded photoshop brushes for the mayan aztec designs on the background of the invitation. I also downloaded the brush for the brick wall design.

    If anyone wants my Photoshop template, please PM me but you need to have Photoshop.

      I used Pink Azalea 105# Metallic Card Stock for the pink ones. White Card Stock 74# was used for the paper in the middle. I glued the white to the pink by using double sided tape.

      The envelopes were A-2 Onyx Black Metallic. Got all of them from paperandmore.com

          Great work! The time and effort was totally worth the finished product.

            Beautiful invites Di! We are planning to do passport invites as well and have ordered metallic card stock for the outside, metallic paper for the inside and A-2 envelopes from paperandmore.com.

            Question for you: were these $0.44 each to mail or $0.61? Yours are so similar to ours, and I would like to buy some cute postage in advance on zazzle.com

            Thanks!

              Thanks. I am not clear on what you are asking. I just used one first class stamp on the invitations and a postcard stamp for the postcards.

                Sorry I was unclear. I meant for the invite itself. I was worried that the invite might be heavy or a strange shape and I'm not quite sure it would be more than the standard $0.44. Thanks for the response!
