I was feeling so super creative today after perusing the invite thread I stumbled upon when searching for info on pocketfold invites. We're broke right now after Christmas and our Chicago road trip, so I just had to play around with my supplies that I already had on-hand. What resulted is something in totally incorrect colors, not a good watermark pic, bad font, horrible font size, and alignment that is so out of whack it's not even funny.... BUT-here goes!
My totally lame attempt at making a trial invite:
Click the image to open in full size.
The colors will actually be closer to an aruba shade of turquoise with a brown sugar color of brown, and the actual invite card with possible watermark and wording will be printed on an ivory shade of the shimmery cardstock.
I am totally in love with Christa's invites and will probably go with the "real", premade pocketfolds, but I was just feeling antsy and creative and thought I'd give all you "idea whores" some fodder JUST KIDDING!
OK, let the insults roll! HA!

    That is 1000 times better than what I could do! I think with a little tweaking, they would be great!

        Ha! Thanks gals, you can actually see the scotch tape I used! And where I cut too short and had to tape my hand where the ring shows! Doug and I are laughing at these right now!

          Ya but that's the whole point of having mock ups - so you don't have to tape the real ones :P

              You call these lame & mock-ups? Pleaseee! They look like they're practically ready to go in the mail! LOL!
              I agree with everyone else, they look great & I only wish I were that creative.

                These are great and similar to what I would love to do but afraid to. How did you fold them?
