I wanted to share the DIY invitation suite that I created for my July 2013 wedding. I designed the set myself using Adobe Photoshop. The watercolor background uses a free Photoshop brush from www.brusheezy.com.  I can't recall the fonts I used, but they were free scrapbooking fonts from www.KevinandAmanda.com.  (I blurred out our full names for privacy.)

For the save the date cards, I printed them using Vistaprint and the calendar stickers are from Moo. Their small stickers are the perfect size to fit on a standard wall calendar!

For the invitations, the pocket folds are from Cards & Pockets in the color Lagoon.  I printed all the insert cards using Vistaprint and trimmed them to size using my paper trimmer.  The thank you notes are also printed from Vistaprint.  

Anyone using Vistaprint for their invitations, please be aware that their cards are NOT standard sizes.  Even though the sizes on their website say that the flat cards are 5x7" in size - they are up to 1" off from the actual size!  Please make sure to get some samples and measure them out with a ruler to see the true sizes, especially if you want to order pocket folds or envelopes from another site.
