@MrsElliott:  I am doing DIY fall invites as well.  I’m actually going to get the supplies to make a mock-up tonight.  I’m trying to keep it simple but interesting.  My colors are primarily purple and green.  I am going with a very thin roll of cork, such as what covers a bulletin board.  Ironing it flat, then attaching the invite card to the front.  I’m doing the card on ivory paper with ink in mostly green with a purple boarder and our names in purple.  I designed it all in Word, and I’m just putting a little fall leaf at the top.  I took my inspiration for the response cards and reception cards from what I was seeing in the online shops and just kept it very simple.  I’m using ivory envelopes, and I don’t intend on having an inner and outer envelope unless I finish them and am honestly worried about them coming open.  My cousin works for the post office and my best friend lives in Maine so I intend to have it all checked out by my cousin and test mailing my friend’s invite so she can tell me how it fared. I intend to put it all together with an ivory lace belly band that is just glue dotted together in the front with the seam covered by a small peice of square paper with our intertwined monogram that I made in paint the other day.  Hopefully I will have pics tonight, lol.

We were going to print them ourselves, but once I saw Cards & Pockets, I was sold! They sent us a quote when we ordered samples and it was super reasonable (I think in the $200s for 150 invitations including supplies). So we’re definitely going that route, much more convenient and very affordable.
