I absolutely love these. Quick question though, how did you print the inserts?

Just wanted to say thanks for the great idea! I love it- I just made mine in AutoCAD- it helped with the dimensioning of envelopes and how to resize the page to fit the envelopes i ended up choosing. (European sizes) These invitations were all in all a bit more work than I initially expected, but sooooo worth it! -K


P.S. To all of you wondering, I spent about $100.00 for the paper, embossing equipment, and corner punch. (50 invitations)

Where did you get your paper from? I am using that same shade of coral/peach.

I will definitly make these invitations but...Did you created the invitations via photoshop, or which software did you use?
