Your invitations are beautiful! Do you mind telling me where you purchased the paper? Also, how much was the total for the number of invites you did? Thanks!
Ok, this is a long response, but if you want to replicate this look, go for it. I’ve tried to write out everything I used.
I got everything from Paper Source. Here are links:
Invitation: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/personalized/W318-2011026208301/detail.html (they are size A7)
A7 Tri-Fold Folder Enclosure: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/A7-Folder-Enclosures/2506.004/845.html (Luxe collection, color: blush)
I cut down the invitations by cutting about 1/8 inch off of the top and right sides. I attached the invitation to a piece of paper which was cut to be just a hair larger than a standard A7 Invitation. So the shiny border you see is this paper: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/8-1-2-x-11-Text-Weight-Paper/2505.131/401.html (stardream collection, color: opal)
A9 (cut in half) RSVP Cards: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/A9-Note-Cards/2505.050/205.html (Luxe collection, color: blush). I cut these in half horizontally.
A6 RSVP Envolope: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/A6-Envelopes/2506.001/104.html (stardream collection, color: opal)
Outer Envelope: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/A7.5-Envelopes/2506.001/106.html (stardream collection, color: opal)
The bows are made with this ribbon: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/Grosgrain-Ribbon/3620.030/852.html (I can’t recall if I used the soft white, but that is what they have on line.)
I got everything in the store, and the staff was very very helpful. They helped me figure out how to do this most economically and with out too much tedious work. They gave me some helpful tips like:
These are not cheap (about $7/invite), however, it was worth it because we only made about 12 invites since we had 20 people at our renewal.
