I used scrapbook adhesives permanent adhesive and it worked great for me, even kept my RSVP card, which was two pieces of cardstock sent as a postcard together through the mail no problem.

I used the Tombow PowerBond (in the red case) for my metallic invites. It was the only thing I found that worked. It isn’t refillable- so it ends up being a bit more expensive. The permanant adhesive is designed for paper, but the PowerBond adhesive is designed for cardstock- so I think it is important to use something stronger- especially for attaching to the pocketfold which is usually make out of a cardstock material.

I also used a glue that was awesome- it is called Zip Dry glue. However, you could see where the line of glue was through the paper. So, I used it only for the lower layers and then used the PowerBond tape for the top layer.

@justbeginning: I really really second this. Another bee, JamaicaBride put me on to them and when I used them (exactly like you, a matting then the invite itself) they stayed put. I used the ones that come 3 in a pack from Michaels for $4.99. They were really good.

@ignatiangal: agreed.

PVA is amazing. but it is liquid. I have used for bookbinding as well but only with bookcloth so I am not sure how it will act with just reg paper.
