My envelope is silver and my invites purple.

I think going with navy is a great choice.

Mine aren’t the same color.  The invitation is light gray and my envelope is dark gray.  I liked the contrast.

I think navy will be beautiful.

I did pocketfolds with an outer envelope. The outer envelope is the same color as the invite paper…sand.

Uhh… no… but kind of.  I used a grey pocketfold with green matting and belly band, and a cream part that’s written on and cards.  The envelopes matched the green backing..

Yeah… here’s a link to photos because that sounds more confusing than it needs to be.

Personally, my envelopes and invites are different colors.  My pocketfold is a red linen, my envelope is a Stardream Gold, and my invities are printed from Catprint on the white shimmer cardstock.

If you really want to match them though maybe get a sample of the Cards and Pockets Stardream Opal paper. (I’m looking at my Catprint booklet and while its not *exact* is really, really close.) It’s more of a brighter shade of the same color.

I got my invites printed on the same cream shimmer paper from cat print.  It was amazing.  I ended up putting those into a tiffany blue pocketfold and had matching envelopes.  But I think if you have cream paper, you can do any envelope color you want 🙂
