    @Carrielicious:  It is hard to tell without seeing a printed version. I think they look a little greeting-cardish and not like an invitation. 

    Maybe add a ribbon? If you can reduce the size of the flower, that would definitely help. The scalloped edge looks like it was cut with scizzors (like the special border shaping type). Its very uneven.  I would use an edge that is less bumpy/wavy. Or buy precut paper to reduce that from happening. I would also make the pink paper larger and leave less brown border showing.

    Hmm…Twine is typically a nice touch for rustic themed invites. Also, colored envelopes would make the invitation seem less casual and ‘every day’. Actually, changing the white paper used on the invites to cream or something softer would help as well I think.

    I agree with another poster that they look too much like a greeting card and not an invitation. I would definitely remove the “Handmade with Love” from the back.

    I would lose the vellum overlay and the “handmade” stamp for sure. I’d also reccomend not doing the scalloped edges, but maybe just simple corner rounding on both layers, as well as the other pieces. Try to make sure the flower graphic on what I assume to be the RSVP card touches the corner from edge to edge if you’re not including the entire thing – otherwise it looks like the paper wasn’t cut quite right. Like others have said, it’s hard to give solid advice without seeing a printed mock-up. Fonts and colors can dramatically change the appearance of an invite. Update us with a more finished version and we can be of more help.
