Print a design all along the side or the top. Google search monogram and use a free site to help you create one.

We might need a bit more information to help you. What shade of blue is the card stock? Is it light enough to show the black ink? Are you intending the size of your invites to be 8 1/2 by 11? or would you prefer a 5×7 size, or otherwise? What color and size are your envelopes? Do you have any experience or access to illustrator? or even microsoft word?

Also, what style are you going for? Is your wedding casual and cute? or more formal?

I know you said you can’t spend anymore, but Michaels has a ton of great embellishments, and they always have a 40% off coupon.

hmm, well I defintely like @Belle2Be:‘s suggestion to check out michael’s, you can really add some great embellishments to your invites without spending a lot. Perhaps get a pattern punch like this one to create a design down the side. Or purchase some twine or ribbon to tie around the invite. Or you could even purchase a stamp to add an embellishment to the invite.

If you absolutely do not want to spend another cent, then here’s what I would do. Open microsoft word, open a new document, choose document type to be invitations>wedding invitations. You should have some basic templates pre-loaded or you can click the link to get more off of microsoft online. Once you have a basic template that you like you can replace the font styles and pictures with graphics that you like. You can get some amazing free fonts from this website. Use one of the available free clip art images from word, such as one of the scrollwork patterns or embellishments. Creating your own monogram like @mwitter80: suggested would be good too. Or you can purchase an inexpensive ready made monogram digital file from somewhere like here. By The Way I’ve used here to make monograms for me and she was amazing.

Best of Luck!
