    I do think it’d confuse people to include an envelope they aren’t supposed to use. RSVPs are a big enough PITA that having people more confused isn’t going to help much I’m afraid.

    I guess I’d go get the tissue in your situation, honestly.

    Tissue is probably the way to go.  You can wrap the whole set in tissue and secure with a ribbon or band.  Using a paper cutter will slice multiple sheets of tissue paper at a time.  Below is a photo of an invitation suite I made where I used multiple types of tissue to wrap/cover the invite/infocard/rsvp postcard set.  Not sure how formal you need it to be, but you can dress it up or dress it down easily.

    @ProfessorGirl:  Envelope liners are super simple!  Take a spare envelope and open it all the way up (carefully). Cut off the side flaps/triangles. Trim off about 1/2-3/4 of an inch around all the sides.  Now you have your template for the liner.  Use whatever paper you please (a lighter weight works best) and use the template to cut out your liner.  Fold at the appropriate places (your template will be your guide) and insert into the envelopes.  Secure at 3-5 points on the top flap with double sided adhesive squares.  Ta da!
