My Invitations - Need Help on Final Cardstock Backing...new to partial DIY!

Recommended Posts

Hello BDW ladies, 

 

I have my invitations printed out now and I want to dress them up a bit!! Sorry about the rotation on the second one, I couldn't get it fixed. Take the poll and help me and the fiance decide! 

 Here is the invitation with the orange cardstock back. 700

 

700 Here is the invitation with no cardstock backing..so "as is"

 

 

700Here is the invitation with the white cardstock backing (well as of now this is the envelope, I am just using it to get an idea because if I do nothing and go with the invite as is, then this "backing" that is actually the envelope will be what I send.  I do however, have a love bird stamp that I am going to put on the back of the envelopes.)

 

 

 

700So if we go with the white cardstock, I'm going to buy the orange envelope. So here's an idea. 

 

Alright, what do you think? What should I go with? Thanks for all your help in advance!!

I love the orange as the mat - it really brings out the orange in the invite and makes it pop.

Hi AllieRay,

 

When I saw the first photo my initial thought was "Oh that's super pretty as is, why does she want to mess with it?" Then I scrolled further and read that it was the invite with the orange backing which clearly I love! LOL By itself is nice also but feels as though something is missing and I wasn't crazy about the white backing so I definitely vote for the orange cardstock. As for the envelope, based on 780chick's reply I'm curious to see if the orange cardstock with orange envelope will have that WOW factor or be too much. Would you mind posting a pic of them together? Although I'm sure the white envelope with orange cardstock will look fab as well.

Thanks everyone for your comments/votes!  I really love the orange mat.  The fiance is voting for the white mat and the orange envelopes....he thinks it flows better with the white from the tree and the lines at the top since they "run off the page."  Passionsarcasm, here's a pic of the orange.  The problem here, is unfortunately I was comparing oranges with the samples so the cardstock back and the envelope here aren't exact matches.  The cardstock I felt matched the lettering the best so I had the guy at the paper store cut this one out for me. BUT problem 2...the matting does not have a matching envelope :( So I would have to change the matting to go with orange cardstock and envelope....but hopefully this gives you an idea of how it would look!

I kind of agree with the Fi on this one - white mat and orange envelope.  By any chance is there and option for a pink mat and orange envelope? Are you making a bellyband... maybe that could be orange.

 

No matter waht you choose, I think they will look fantastic, just a matter of persional preference.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
