Cool invitations!  Definitely DIYable if you have the time 🙂

Size wise, I would aim to make them DLE size (size of a standard letter) so they are cost effective to post. 

It would probably be easier if you had them printed for you – cost effective too if they are just black and white. 

I would do a lace belly band if you wanted to add lace to the design.

I would start with deciding what size envelope/invitation you are looking for. Keep in mind that the odd size envelopes cost more postage sometimes. Based on that, you can create a word document that fits the size that you want. 

If you are wanting to DIY, definitely get a paper cutter, to make those straight line cuts. This is the one I got, have used it countless times to make my invitations, menus, programs, etc. http://store.scrapbook.com/ek-ekcp01.html

Or, if you have it printed as PP mentioned above, they will usually make cuts for you for a small fee.

Looking at it again, the folded part looks like about 2/3 of a standard letter page, and the other “evening invitation”is the other 1/3. That makes it really easy because it would fit in a standard #10 envelope (4 1/8″ x 9 1/2”).
