After A LOT of time and consideration, I decided to include an outer envelope to my DIY invitations. As previously described…the invitations are made with Stardream Sapphire paper and have matching envelopes. The piece with the wording on it is a cream colored paper with dark chocolate brown writing. There is a pocket with the response card and envelope that will eventually also have a map and an information card.
The invitations, once folded, are 6″ x 6″ and wrapped with a 2″ band of cream colored fibrous paper and a chocolate brown ribbon.
As soon as I send them out I will post pictures, but I really want to keep them secret-secret until my guests get a chance to see them.
I had the wonderful people at Wilshire Graphics Press make us a monogram with a copperplate and a cursive font combined. This monogram has shown up in various places in the wedding details and will be on the cake as well.
