And not a moment too soon. I got two hours of sleep last night, stayed up until 5 making 98 invitations. FI did as much as, if not more work than I did. He is awesome. I am so glad they are done.
I used blossom pink petal enclosures with a stardream opal square card inside, with the text letterpressed. Then I tied an ivory ribbon around the whole thing, and they went in green envelopes. The RSVP cards were A4 stardream opal cards in green envelopes. Very simple–no other enclosures. I will try to post a picture or two, but for now I am just so freaking glad to have it all done.
Oh, and despite my extreme fatigue, I am so glad we made them ourselves! I love how they turned out and I love that we made them together.
Man, is work going to suck today.

Congrats! They sound beautiful!
We finished ours last night as well after three days straight of working on them. Dropping them off this morning at the post office was a bit like I imagine dropping your kid off at school must be like!
Ours were black pockets with white 7/8" grosgrain ribbon lovingly taped around it, along with a monogram square made of white cardstock on top of silver cardstock. The insides were the same silver cardstock behind the white invite and the 3 enclosures were white cardstock with blue and grey printing with Scriptina and Papryus fonts. The RSVP is a postcard with one of our engagment photos on the front with the text "We do not remember days, we remember moments" and the photo is FI and I laughing at each other while he pushes my hair out of my face. The envelopes are pearly white with blue Papryus font on the back and outside. Stamps were custom from Zazzle and sealed with a double-heart sticker!
And the best part … THEY’RE DONE AND IN THE MAIL! The post office lady took them from me after convincing me they didn’t need to be hand-cancelled (dang you weddingbee for telling me something I didn’t know before coming here and thinking that i needed it!) and said "Now you can relax." I just laughed!
