Lovely!  I am a fan of DIY invites.  These are beautiful!  Have you tried to round the top point of the liner?  There is a paper punch that will do it for you.  I think the main reason you are having trouble with the liner is because the paper is a different shape than the envelope flap.  You might even have to cut the part of the liner that slips into the envelope narrower so you have the same amount of red paper along the entire edge of the flap.  A little extra work but it will pay off.   And FYI: always apply adhesive to the smaller paper being adheared so there is no overlap.

Make sure you check with postal service about the weight, sometimes the fancy invites cost more to ship and I’ve heard horror stories about them never being delivered. Just a tip.

That said, they’re beautiful!

Those are gorgeous! I love the vellum in invitation suites, and your colors and motif are incredible!

Tip for the envelope liner: trace the envelope (with flap open) onto your liner paper, then cut out the shape, trimming about 1/2 inch of the bottom. Should work like a charm (:

I love these! I diyed my invites as well! I would have loved to use that transparent paper, that looks so lovely, but my printer would’ve eaten it lol

Ours were much more simple in design (I’m a graphic designer so I made it a bit artsy but super simple) but I love the floral designs, I really wanted one for a while!!! These look so beautiful! I also love the envelope liner, beautiful little touch 😉
