So my DIY invites are finally completed.. I did this in stages that were really dragged out.. i wasnt sure why it took me so long to complete until today when i finished.. i dont think i wanted to finish because now im a little sad that i dont get to work on them anymore lol.
Anyways I designed all elements of the invite myself. Our colors are eggplant, silver/grey, coral, and brown. They were all done just in microsoft publisher. I did a pocketfold invitation instead of a passport or boarding pass because i felt a pocketfold fit in with my vinatge theme a bit better.
I got my kraft pocketfolds from an etsy seller who was amazing!!! I had to buy my supplies from her because i couldn't find kraft pocketfolds anywhere that would ship to canada for a resonable price. So from her i ordered 30 each of the pocketfolds, A7 envelopes and bar 4 envelopes for the reply cards. She sent about 50 of each even though i only paid for 30.. which was so sweet of her.
Anyways this is the invitation design
These are the individual pieces to go into the pocketfold
Here is the pocketfold all put together. The RSVP card is put togther with the envelope and secured with a silver bellyband
The outer belly band is the silver again with an eggplant ribbon and 3 rhinestones placed to the right of the pocketfold flap.
And last is the outer envelope. I took a pic of the only one that didnt have an address as i am just dropping it off to my photographer. It was Jon's idea to address the envelopes with the old typewriter font to go with our vintage theme (he wanted to actually use a typewriter lol!! but we didnt have one) We used our printer to print the addresses which is where having those extra envelopes came in handy because my printer didnt like printing on envelopes and many got ruined, but luckily thatnks to the etsy seller we still had lots! The reply card addresses are done the same.
And now they are ready to send out!!!
