These took a lot of time and a lot of stamp ink, but I think they were worth it in the end =)
I printed them at home on cheap blank invitation paper i found at Michael’s and stamped on the yellow flower with a rubber stamp I bought off Ebay.
The invitations I got from Michael’s just had one size paper (8.5″x5.5″) and only one set of envelopes for the actual invitation. So I bought an extra box and cut the invitaitons in half to make RSVP postcards (since I couldn’t find matching RSVP envelopes), and into quarters to make the reception cards.
The one under the postcard with the flower in the corner is what the back of the postcard looks like.
My camera distored the yellow color a little bit, the flowers are more yellow than they look in the pictures. And no, I did not choose the polar bear stamp. Unfortunately it’s the only postcard stamp the USPS has right now. At least the colors kind of match…

I love the stamp you used! Blue and yellow are our wedding colors too. 🙂

These look great! I’ll be stamping my own invites too and was looking for inspiration. I like how clean and neat these look – great job! 🙂

Agree – great job! 🙂
I too am another bride looking to make my own invites (and also looking to do the postcard RSVP idea, etc.) 🙂
Thanks for sharing! It’s nice to see how d.i.y. invites/rsvp’s come out. 🙂

Our names are in Edwardian Script ITC. I downloaded it for free but I can’t remember from what website.

This post is so reassuring. I am also making my own invitations from Michael’s kits. I was concerened that the invitation paper wouldn’t make it through the mail for RSVP postcards. Did you make your own template to print them or did you find one online?
