    I spent pretty much all of yesterday trying to finish off our DIY invites so they can be mailed next week, and am so excited that they are almost done!

    Here is the outside.

    Here are our four inserts. The map isn''t perfect, but I did it myself, so I am pretty proud of it.

    RSVP Envelope Labels, again not perfect, we put the labels on before thinking about stamps so there was a bit of overlap, but I was too tired to redo them [​IMG]

    The envelopes - I had planned on doing calligraphy but fell in love with these instead.

    Thank you for the compliments! These have been a huge undertaking and I can''t wait to send them out next week and start receiving our RSVP''s back.


    Hudson - I can''t wait to see your pics! I have had a kind of hard go of it finding inspiration pics in our colors... A lot of green and white and a lot of purple and white but not a lot of the two together.

    Morgie, absolutely beautiful invites. I love the subtle damask too. It''s not all over the place like some designs.

    Those look great! I love the purple ribbon and damask. You are probably the only one who will notice the stamp overlap.

    GORGEOUS!! I love the damask with the little bit of green. Something you might want to check on though is that I think addresses are required to be lengthwise on the envelope. I could be wrong, but I think I remember reading that rule on the post office web site. If that is true, then you can just wrap the label around the short side instead of long side.

    Agreed. They look so professional and rather expensive too [​IMG]

    The purple ribbon really sets it off- well done!

    Missy, RHBGirl, Lliang, Amber, WannabmrsH, ilovesparkles, dannielle, bee, honey, meresal: Thank you all for the kind words! It is really nice to hear after spending many hours on them!

    Lanie - I hope you are right about the overlapping stamps! It just kills me that after I thought we considered every detail something so silly could fall through the cracks!

    Guilty - Thanks for the heads up! The invites are actually square so I think we should be ok, though I am a little nervous that the machines may read the return address instead of the mailing address since it is on the back. I have found a few girls online that have done similar envelopes and they haven''t had a problem or if they did, only got a handful mailed back to them rather than to the intended recipient.

    Idreamofcushions: Thanks! I am not sure which paper you are asking about but I got the white paper from OfficeMax, it is just regular 80# coverstock, the black is 80# coverstock from paper and more. The green paper is linen paper I got from Hobby Lobby in the scrab book section. It was MUCH cheaper there than online! The damask I actually printed myself on the white cardstock. I had considered using damask wrapping paper, but after looking at some invitation samples, I decided it would look less homemade if I used a heavier paper and made it look more like a panel.

    haha, for some reason, the pictures of the envelopes looked rectangular to me, maybe because of the angle of the picture or the proportions of my computer screen. I thought maybe you had used a rectangular envelope to make room for the ribbon or save on postage or some other random reason.
