Labor of love indeed. Finally finished.
To create the ‘kangaroo pocket’ used cardstock, was able to cut two out of each 12×12 sheet, scored it for a clean line, folded up the pocket, cut it at a slant, and added a slit for our mini card that had our website details then glued the sides of the pocket. Created our own invite front and ordered from Vistaprint as well as our postcard RSVP. Then created the timeline insert, printed and cut them out. Attached the invite card to the front with photocorners (I love those things!), put the directions / timeline card and RSVP in the pocket and inserted the mini card into it’s slit in the back. (Hmmm, seems easier when you write it all down then when you are actually doing it…)
Went out in the mail yesterday and it only needed 1 regular stamp! WOO HOO!

Wow! These look amazing! I was actually looking to do some similar pocket to keep all the inserts looking tidy. How long did it take you to do this? I want to attempt this project. I’m also ordering Vistaprint invites:) What size is your invitation? So nice it only took one stamp!

Thanks! It really didn’t take that long as long as you have a good cutter. We made everything to fit a 5×7 envelope. The postcard from vista was their standard like 4×6 card (maybe teeny bit smaller?) size. We used one version for the front and another in the back as the RSVP. The only thing I would do differently was take into consideration the cardstock – we got a textured cardstock, mistake. The typical craft glue strips wouldn’t adhere the edges so we literally had to hand glue them. That probably took the long time. Seriously was not a huge time consuming project – completely doable.
