Pocket folder mock-up
I made my pocket folder invitation to the measurements shown on the cards and pockets website. I made it using a 12 x 12 piece of brown card stock I picked up at AC Moore. It's 7" x 5" when folded up.
I love the look of patterned paper for the invite mat but if we decide to go with this style we will have to buy and cut paper to achieve that look. Cards and pockets only offer solid color invitation mats. As with the #10 booklet, I used the large leaf stamp I bought online from paper-source to add depth and interest to the invitation card itself. On this one, I used a multicolor stamp from color box ($17.99 at AC Moore)
I printed my inserts on 6.5" wide card stock and again, had to fiddle with my margins to achieve the staggered look I was going for. All in all, I love the look of the pocket folder and how all the pieces of the invitation are included. Also, I need to check with the post office but I don't think I need to use an envelope for these invitations.
