I’ve set up my invitations to be printed at Cards and Pockets. My colors are pink and gold. My invitation is pink/gold type on cream. The invitation mat was going to be pink and the entire pocketfold gold (belly band is pink too).
I’m running into an issue though. The gold pocketfold from Cards and Pockets is so off!!! It looks like mustard/yellow and does not have that dreamy pink/gold Martha Stewart look to it. It pretty much looks like my colors are pink and yellow. I’m not worried about it ‘matching”, just that it looks hideous together. I’ve also seen the gold leaf one but that’s wrong too…very matte-ish. The antique gold is basically dark bronze.
Has anyone else looked for that Martha gold and found a good pocketfold match? Given this unexpected issue, I’ll need the other option to allow me to order 1 sample.

I can relate, one of our colours is gold and we couldn’t find the right shade of everything either. Some stuff is bronze-y, some yellow/orange-y.

Not sure if you’d be up to making your own, but where I got my paper from has some nice gold options and you can get the paper cut to the size you need.
Making pocketfolds is kinda tedious BUT it’s not that difficult and if it means you get the color you want it may be worth it.
This is my abolute favorite paper company.. great prices and fantastic customer service! Getting samples is super easy and they are so quick to respond and get orders processed.
Here were some of the “gold” stocks I found
Hope that helps some =)

@runsyellowlites:you are a trooper! i wasn’t planning on making my own but if push came to shove…i will at least think about it some more.
i found several champagne/gold shades on papersandmore so i’ve ordered 4 samples there (finally figured out how to get a sample and not a pack!) and am crossing my fingers one will work. oh, and one of them was called stardream so maybe it’s the same as the anchor paper color!
and i finally placed my finger on cardsandpockets “gold” – manila! it basically looks like a shimmery manila envelope. not cute with pink and cream!
