Check out my totally lame invite mock-ups!

Recommended Posts

Melissa, I would think if I wanted to do a 6X6 card, I would need enough for 2 6" sides, plus enough for about a 2 or 3" pocket, plus the flap, about another 2 or 3". So 18", or 20" long to be safe, and then at least 8" wide (in order to do a 1"flap on each side that would double-stick tape the pocket to the side), but where in the world would I find Stardream-type shimmery paper that sizehuh.gif I'm pretty sure I'll just buy the pre-made pocketfold cards, then just do my own matting and invite card, respond card, inserts, printing, etc. I just really wanted to play with it and have something to see in person to figure out what I thought.

 

Thanks for all your encouraging comments! Really, if you saw these in person, you would have to snicker at me a little. But the idea is great, I just don't know how to pull off the whole paper size issue. Also, I am sure I would be completely happy just orderding the pre-made pockets. It was just fun to try :) Seriously tho, if anyone knows where I can get the crazy size paper, let me know!

HA! I just found some 12"X18", and possibly some full-size, stardream paper at Traditional and specialty envelopes and papers, including metallic paper - Paper-Papers.com, so my vision maay become a reality. I gotta crunch some numbers and see what would be more cost-effective for me.

abb those look great for being mock-ups. have you also looked at paper-source? (paper-source.com) they have that kind of paper and i believe it comes in the size you need if you buy one of the big sheets they sell. i was just there the other day and thought about buying them to make a mock-up STD because we arent sure what size we want to do.

I actually think these aren't lame at all. I think they are very nice! If you do those few changes you mentioned they will be awesome!

Thanks ladies :) I am so excited to do my invites.... but Doug reminded me that we need to do the STD's first, so that is my current project. Maura and Melissa, I'm gonna check out your ideas and down the road I'll post what I end up coming up with! Thanks for all the nice comments everyone, you rock :)

    • 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.
