I used handmade paper from http://www.handmade-paper.us (Susan is GREAT) for the outer folder. The nice thing is that there are two pockets so all the cards stay in neatly. I used stamps from my local craft store and my heat embossing tool for the Scripture (1 Corinthians 13) at the bottom of the invitation. The yellow card stock is a pearlescent finish from Office Max as is the white card stock. I used the heaviest they had and I am glad I did because the intense purple ink can bleed through thinner paper. I used 2 shades of yellow for the stamps. I have been asked by others how to divide up a sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ paper so that they enclosures nest perfectly. Here it is again.
Cut the 8.5″ x 11″ card stock in the middle lengthwise. You will now have 2 pieces 4.25″ x 11″
Cut the first piece widthwise at 7″. This will leave a 4″ piece.
Cut the second piece widthwise at 6″. This will leave a 5″ piece.
Now you have 4 successive pieces of card: 4″, 5″, 6″ and 7″.
I hope this helps!
I finished it all off with a double ribbon embellishment on the outer folder.
