    Mine was just one card. Simple. Got the point across.

    I definitely did not do expensive invitations…mine were one layer.  I see these gorgeous invitations and have brief regrets; however, I didn’t allocate a large portion of the budget for invitations and ultimately I’m happy with my decision!

    Mine are mounted on the eggplant backing and then mounted to the silver pocketfold from Cards & Pockets. I love the way it looks, the extra pop of color really helps. I wish I had a photo to send you but I’ve only made one as a trial with the samples – haven’t touched the materials for the real ones since I got them.

    My invites were cardstock with a backing panel, but so were each of my inserts! I did a lot of overall layers to my invites, but I made them myself so they were very afordable.

    @StL.Ashley:  my invites were mounted onto the pocketfold along with a few additional embellishments.  diy, btw.

    i think you should do whatever you like and what fits your budget.

    Mine were linen paper mounted on cardstock, then mounted into the pocketfold.

    i had a 5×7 flat card custom cut, and a colored backer card custom cut as well, and all assembled onto a trifold pocketfold. it was double wrapped with a sheer ribbon with a small knot in the back. while it was all professionally cut and assembled, i pretty much designed the overall look myself…with the exception of the invitation design itself, as it was from weddingpaperdivas.
