I think they look great, but if you want to liven up the liner or envelope, maybe a fun colored stamp or two would help.

Get a stamp in the same red and stamp (or Gocco) some sort of design on the gray liner?

More info needed:

What are your colors? Is the red the inner envelope? If you have silver I think you are fine. You could just switch up inner envelopes to same color as outer- although I like the red. Honestly these are fine. If really bothered is it possible to place a black or dark inner liner where silver is?

Stamp on the liner and maybe on the front of the envelope too since there is a lot of white space?

I love the grey and claret together.  If there both colors are represented anywhere else in the invitation suite, you should be fine to leave the grey liner as is.

I think I was posting at the same time you were posting your pics.

You’re right, it does look nicer with the better envelope.  I think it would really help pull everything together if you changed the branches from brown (on my monitor they look brown anyway) to grey.

Overall, I think you’ve done a great job with the design!  I diy’d my own invitations and in retrospect, I was my harshest critic–but it was all so worthwhile in the end!!!

I actually really like it a lot! I think if you still aren’t sure about the liner, adding a stamp in red would look great!

I think it looks beautiful! If you wanted to add a little something, you could print the same branch motif on the outside of the envelope under the address.

I love the stitching! It reminds me of ones that a Bee made…but I don’t remember which one. Their colors were blue, red and white!

Miss Poodle stitched her envelopes. I took inspiration from her and stitched my invitations into a booklet! I love the way it looks!

I think they look great!!! To be honest, I don’t believe anything is needed, they’re so cute as is!
