You can actually order samples from paper and more.  The pic you posted lookes like a square invite (6.5″) with an A2 envelope, it could also be 5.5″ with an A4 envelope.  I’d order samples of both so you can see what size you like, but just know that you will be charged extra to mail a square envelope.  As for designing the invites, I highly recommend photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator (Adobe).  I usually design everything in photoshop, then import to InDesign for sizing/placement/print.  If you plan on cutting the invites/inserts yourself, I’d also recommend a scrapbook cutter.

Here are my suggestions:

Program to create the invitations – GIMP.com

Fonts to create the monogram – dafont.com

Vintage pattern – I suggest looking for “brushes” or “patterns” maybe using keywords like flower, vintage, etc… (download brushes and then use them in gimp, if you don’t have experience with these types of tools I suggest looking for tutorial videos)

P.S. I ordered from paper and more and was so pleased. We did however choose to cut our own paper to the sizes we wanted, it wasn’t that much work but did take some time. We bought a paper trimmer of course to make it a LOT easier. However, I’m sure it’d be nice to order them in the sizes you’d like and having them trim them for you. I would first google invitation sizes and compare them, thinking about what size you need, like, and how much it would be to mail them (unique sized invitations typically cost more per invitation to mail).
