You don’t really have to do two layers if you don’t want to. Also, many people use glue dots or double sided tape to stick the layers together, because it’s basically mess-free. Good luck!

I think it’s just another way to work in an accent color. Totally preference, I’m sure.

I would go with glue dots.  They are awesome and so easy to use.

I’m sure it’s base don preference. Instead of layering ours, we’re just gonna have a border printed around them. It’s save a few bucks at least!

@Laboroflove- Gluedots are a great idea! I actually have some and now I’m wondering why i didn’t think of that too haha

@Nlmiele – DO NOT use rubber cement! I received a pocketfold invitation glued with rubber cement and it looked awful. Everything dried wavy. Definitely go with glue dots or double sided tape. They don’t need to dry so your paper will stay crisp. Just a warning! 🙂

Its based on preference, the extra layering can add alot to the invitation.  Our pocketfolds were a brown/bronze and the actual invitation was printed on ivory cardstock.  I wanted it to pop a bit so I used a teal cardstock as the matting.  Definitely use double sided tape, it works the best.  Check out local crafting and scrapbooking stores and get some quality tape so you dont have to worry about them coming undone.  Some brands of double sided tape wont cut it, especially depending on how heavy your cardstock is and how many layers you have.
