Thanks again for all the feedback!
@rachbac: That was a great point. I actually did check the size and thickness of the postcard before I printed on them. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get the required size and length:width proportions and still fit the card in the CD pocket, but this one just qualifies. It’s the size of cutting an 8.5×11 card in quarters and then trimming a little bit off each side, and the cardstock is 80# (just thick enough).
@Adira: That’s cool that you used the same birdy motif. I actually saw it here originally on one of the bee invites (sorry, can’t remember which one–maybe Mrs. Penguin?) On most of my paper goods, the bird positioning is most like the positioning on the RSVP postcard cover–birds sitting on a line near the bottom with our names/date below. However, on the invitation I wanted the birds to move closer together as you moved from meeting by chance (first panel) to announcing that we’re getting married (2nd panel) to the date of the wedding (third panel). But one of the things I loved about those birds was that you really could sit them anywhere.

Yes! I saw the birdy motif on here first too! It was Mrs. Penguin! I also copied her favors and did similar coasters for my favors. I really love how you broke out the birds and used them in different places – I didn’t even think to do that except to make a little stamp of them so I could put the birds on the envelopes. Where did you get the outline (the one around the menu and information stuff) that you used? I love the look of that!

Holy cow! For someone who said they have very limited experience in design…well you’d never know it! Every piece you made is just lovely and they coordinate so well!

@Adira: I bought the border a while back on istockphoto and adapted it to work with my colors and style. I don’t remember what it was called.
@ILikePink: You’re right on the screens and bulbs! This suite took 6 screens for the CD holder itself, 2 for the envelopes, and 4 for the RSVP cards. Amazingly (or luckily), I didn’t have to redo any of them. If I were more creative, I probably could have fit several panels (or several colors) on a single screen, but for me it wasn’t worth messing the whole thing up. I’ve also gone through 6 screens for placecards, menu cards, karaoke covers, and program covers, but I think I have enough left for my remaining projects. Barely though!
@pec1216: I actually was joking to my fiance that I might consider selling some things on etsy. My background is a PhD in genetics and around 4 years in business consulting, but I quit my job to take a stress break, and I haven’t yet figured out what I want to do when I grow up 🙂
