I made a few modification because I find it too plain. I got these "Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Punch All Around" at Micheals. This set comes with two punch outs: a corner punch out and a straight punch out. I used the corner wild flower punch out to achieve the lace look on the corners of the invitation. I got the invitation, monogram stickers, and inserts printed at Vista print. The ribbons from Fine Ribbons.
|Punch out corners before folding the invitation. Used a lightweight|
cardstock. Any thicker the wild flower puncher will not work.
|Unfolded the invitation measures 13.5" by 9"|
|Folded invitation into 4 sections. Section 1 is 2.5", then 4", 4" and the|
pocket is 3" deep.
|The contents of the invitation is printed on white linen paper (section 2).|
It's centered from top to bottom, left to right in section 2.
|On the right side is the pocket where we can put inserts like|
RSVP info and the "entourage list".
|Pocket is 3 inches deep and the sides are glued shut.|
|For a neat professional looking folds each section|
was scored and folded using a bone folder.

|pocket is not glued all the way to the top. It was glued from bottom|
corner up to the beginning of the wild flower punched out image.
