    I did these invitations myself. I wanted to save money, but still have a great result. The formatting, and cutting took forever. But I'm so happy with the result.

     

    costs:

     

    98 invitations

     

    $277 for all paper and envelopes (including cardstock for paper fold, blue and orange paper, envelope, and RSVP envelope)

    purchased from the paper tree

     

    14.78 Sand dollar punch out 

    4.99 for a black and blue stamp pad

    4.99 for star fish stamp

    2.89 for bride and groom stamp

    all purchased at micheals with a 50% off coupon

     

    total for one invitation: $3.12

     

    The open pocketfold

     

     

    The closed pocketfold

     

    The outer envelope

     

    The formal invite

        I'm trying to make mine match..but then again, people don't know your colors until they actually get to the wedding.
