We have over 100 invitations to send, with over half via international post. Therefore it is important, budget-wise, to keep the invites standard size and weight. I have done these as a quick mock up. What would be different is the printing (this is just a cheap inkjet print set on “fast draft”). I did a quick job on the embossing too.
We’re going for a simple, classic look with our invites. There will be only one insert, slightly larger than a business card directing them to our website for RSVP, accomodations, etc.
I am very open to suggestions for improvements. If you like them, let me know that too 🙂 Thanks!!!!

Cute! Maybe make the green circle a tiny bit smaller, but I think they look good : )

@wabanzi: lovelywow wish I could do something like that! I wonder if my you might consider changing the large green circle to maybe a green Letter initial?

@whitefuzzy: You may be right…I have so many punches in different sizes and shapes, so I can try out quite a few.
@Peachytalk The double circle is what keeps the vellum closed (the shorter piece of vellum slides in between the two circles) so I definitely need something there, but we will not have the same initial (I will be keeping my name). But maybe a different shape/size.
@ellie-b: Thanks! I think they’ll look better printed on my laser jet. Maybe with our names in green (?)

@wabanzi: Yeah, your names in green would be a nice touch. You’ll want to make sure it’s not too light a color of green, though, so it’s easy to read.

I don’t think you need those punched corners on the black paper. idk why, I’m really distracted by that tiny bit of light paper when it’s closed? and I do agree with a smaller circle as well. Otherwise, I LOVE the fonts you’ve used. The green and the smaller punched corners is a gorgeous touch.
