Two weekends ago, my fiance, his mom, and I knocked out our wedding invites after I had been obsessing over them for ages.  All of this was done in MS Word and Photoshop and it was printed at Kinkos. 

The outside:  Red Cardstock wrapped with silver and black ribbon, and a tag on top specifying the guest's name(s).



The flip side:  The outside back.  The ribbon holds onto the RSVP card and the map/accommodations card.



The address side of the RSVP postcard, complete with an Alaska highway stamp (because i'm from Alaska - I scored these on eBay for cheap, which I liked because I didn't want to have to use the panthers.   Lips sealed  also, they are 29 cent stamps, which still works after postage goes up in May):



The information side of the RSVP postcard, design based on TheBon's RSVPS:



The Map/Accommodations card, Map side.  Design based on Wedding Mapper.



The Map/Accommodations card, Accommodations side.



and, finally, the inside of the cardstock, the ACTUAL INVITE:



...and the envelopes, hand addressed by moi; and, at the bottom, the return address label (for good measure).



Please pardon the ghetto censoring - I didn't have time to futz with photoshop Cheesy 

So?  Whaddaya think?  Very un-pokeball, yeah?  They'll be going out next week-ish Cheesy


ETA:  crap.  i didn't realize these pics were so washed out when i posted... you can get the gist, though, right?

i think they are gorgeous! i admit when i first saw the first picture, i thought they were pokeball- esq, but i believe reading the rest of the post, i could see how it all ties together. i really love the flowers in sillohette, and the idea of letting the guests request a song. these are beautiful!

thanks ladies!  people (i've given out two of these by hand to immediate family members) seem to be confused by the ribbon - both people that got them thought the insert cards were the whole package and hesitated to break the ribbon to get into the invitation!  i hope others aren't so sentimental, guests need to know where and when and to whose wedding they are invited!
