design the card in powerpoint, publisher, illustrator…whatever program you have and can use. it’s a very simple design, so shouldn’t be too hard. use dafont.com for free fonts.

print the invite on white cardstock, then mount on a piece of green cardstock. cut strips out of navy cardstock to use as a belly band and use a drop of glue to attach it. tie with twine.

Also, last time I checked Martha Stewart had instructions on how to line your own envelopes if you wanted to take the time to make the interior of the envelopes decorative.

@missmichigan: No, she’s saying you’ll have to design it yourself by setting the margins and typing the text into one of those programs.

@missmichigan: I think you’re misunderstanding what we’re saying 🙂

There is no design already set up. If you want to DIY, you have to make it yourself. Open a new document in one of those programs, set your margins, and start typing the info in the same (or similar font). If you want a fancier, free font, check out dafont.com to download. Then do as @Kitsy says, print them out onto cardstock/paper of your choice and mount/glue them onto colored cardstock.

You could always get someone to create this for you, but since it’s a simple enough design, you should be able to DIY easily following the steps above.

Check your dpi before making your invites tho! Mine was set at 72 and I had to change it to 300, and it took me awhile to figure out why it was so fuzzy looking.

the envelope looks like it has a liner glued to the inside. You would need to find the paper that the person used for the liner to duplicate that look.
