Hmmm I’ll show you the mockups I made for my own invites, previously (my colors were then green and black and white).

I just wrote a blog about ours the other day. Here is the link. I just have the front on there so far but the inside will have all the traditional information printed on the plain pearl ivory paper and then hand sewn with the silver thread. Our colors are blue, ivory and hints of silver.

Here are my DIY invites.  I made them in illustrator and ordered all the paper from paper-source.com.

I didn’t work on them nonstop so I guess about 2-3 weeks working on them an hour here and there.  Once I got the main invitation page made I basically cut and pasted the elements onto the enclosures.  I also researched a lot to find what I wanted them all to say.  It was lots of fun and I’m using the theme of the invites throughtout the entire wedding.

@jenniejen: Did you make your own pocketfolds, or did you order those from Paper-source.com ?
