So here are a few photos of my invitations, which I will be selling in my shop. The price is little higher than my other items, because OMG, these were a LOT more work than I anticipated (plus the dupioni silk wasn't cheap). It did get easier after the 5th one, but I was exhausted when I was done. I told the fiance "never again, never never never" will I make these types of invitations. This is my normal rant after I try something new. Then I'm like, nah, I can do this again. So check it out:
Since we have a destination wedding, "Travel Information" contains our travel agent info, resort info, etc. It's in lieu of "Accomodations." I really only added a "Details" Card so that there was a nice layered look to the inserts. The Response card's 4Bar red envelope is inserted behind all the inserts, out of view. Augh. Look at the date of the Response card: November 15. And I mailed them today! What a faux pas. Girls, if you are mailing your invitations, make sure your "respond by" date is at least 3 weeks in advance. Shame on me. But life threw me lemons, and I made apple juice. I know - its just wrong (and yes, the saying is "lemonade" not apple juice).
A Monogram square closes the whole pocketfold. I decided to add 6 small rhinestones to the square just to add some interest. I felt that it was a little plain without them. More work, yes, but nice touch.
