    I didn’t notice anything when I first seen the picture, but once you mentioned it, it does look bare.

    I think an imboss would be great! Or even a lovely stamp with both of your names.

    its too bad that the best part of the invite is getting covered with the pocketfold. Are you having any enclosures? are they also going in the pocket? what about doing a belly band instead so that you still see that pretty detail on the invite?

    Are you doing an information card? That would be a good place to put it!

    I think the invitation looked great with just the stamps.  I fear the beads would fall off or the glue would ruin other things.  However, on the envelope I would add a monogram of your initials with him.  I have attached an  example that I think looks pretty but simple.

    @littlemisshostess:  I agree that the best part is being hidden. 

    You could cut the a “mirror/reflective”pattern below the ribbon for a middle piece and the bottom would be open through to the invitation.  That would add an interesting twist I think.

    @bluebelle23:   lets see a shot upside down? I mean obviously you would fix the writing but the idea is the same

    that tough — it looks great in the pocket but it needs to look good on its own…..

    I don’t know that I have an issue w the decoration on top vs bottom since its uneven no matter which way its printed
