My package from cards and pockets (online) just arrived today. I am so excited! I am making 60 invitations.
Here is what I ordered for a total of $79:
60 5×7 pocketfold envelopes for the invitation
70 A7 envelopes
70 response card envelopes
I am an avid stamper/scrapbooker so I have a multiple paper trimmers, tape runners, glue, tons of cardstock and anything else I might need lol. I am printing the invite on my own printer, and stamping/embossing with my own stamps, embossing powder and heat gun.
Wish me luck!

YAY!! Good on you. I thought about making my own invites for about three seconds before I remembered I have no creativity! If you’ve got the skill, go for it! Don’t forget to post pictures!!

First stages of the invitation…I was really going for simple and elegant, and many of the invitations I looked at I realized I could probably do something similar for less $.
The black is stardream metallic in black, and the pocketfold envelopes are the Mars color. Bad lighting, but it’s a nice deep, shimmery burgundy/red and not orangey how it looks in the picture. I spent $4 ordering paper samples to make sure the color was right. The stamped part will be embossed.
