    They def need some work.. But here is the RSVPs I created today. :o) I plan on printing them on Metallic Pearl Cardstock. I was wanting to add a faded stamp in the backgorund of the hibiscus flowers (like on the labels for the playing cards) since it looks so plain on the white cardstock (but I haven't figured out how to yet). Maybe once I get it printed on the pearl paper they wont look so plain.

        The paper in the picture is just regular white cardstock. But the paper I will be using for my RSVP, Bridesmaid cards and Passport covers, I ordered from PaperandMore.com  <--- Highly recommend them!  I ordered 100 sheets of Pearl Cardstock, 100 sheets of Pink Azela Cardstock, and 50 envelopes for right under $80 with shipping included.

          I really like them and I think they are simple and beautiful without the extra hibiscus in the background.  This way it doesn't take away from the fact that they are boarding passes.

          Super cute!  Great job!

            Hey Miss Bubbles.

             

            These will looks awesome on pearlescent cardstock. I definitely understand your frustration regarding background images.  I ran into the same problem with my orchid themed boarding pass invites, but I finally figured it out (in MS word version 2010 anyway).  Hopefully this make sense: make sure you format  all of your images to be "behind  text". Also your text has be to inserted in a text box in order to select teh proper formatting options.  Once you create a text box, make the fill color white, and set the transparency to 20% to 50% (this is a matter of personal preference and image/font colors being used). If you still have questions let me know.

              Thanks Ladies!! :o)

              I'll probably just fix the ones on the front then. Thanks for the advice!!

               

              Should I do the rounded corners or leave them pointy?  Ever since I bought my corner rounders, I have been rounding the corners on everything in site.. lol..

              Also, should I take away the "place stamp here" that I added?  I will go ahead and place a stamp on each one so people will actually return them with a yes or no response. Or so I hope.

               

              All advice and improvements are greatly appreciated. :o)

                Hmm... even though it's minimal, I think it's a waste of ink to print 'place stamp here' if you're going to provide postage.  On another note, I thing I did was add the ages for what classified a child at my resort.  The age group tend to vary from one resort to another i.e. at my resorts children pricing is based on an age of 2-12, but the average person would consider a 14 year old a child.  Just a though, since this distinction might impact your total costs.

                Children (ages 2-12)____

                  Thanks!!  I removed the "place stamp here"

                   

                  I will check with our resort on the child "age range" and I will also check our reception dinner venue to see what their child "age range" is. (Hopefully it's the same)  Thank you sooo much!  I didn't think of that!
