And here is what you would see when you pulled it out of the envelope...
Ohhh, fancy monogram!
All the pieces in their proper place...
And all the pieces pulled out. What was that I heard? Requests for close ups?

Stacks and stacks of these bad boys were made, and we finally got them all mailed out...
RSVPs have been coming in, and Mr. C seriously loves getting the mail everyday. We make sure to take turns opening the envelopes, and get super pumped to see people accepting, and a little bummed out when people decline. I don't think either of us has ever been so competitive about getting the mail before.
Our invitations were a labor of love, and I think it shows. We've gotten tons of compliments, and we saved a buttload (yup, a whollllle buttload) of money, so after all the hard work, the tears, the arguing, the stress...the invitations were actually worth it all. They are exactly how I envisioned them and I think they are getting people excited for the big day.
Now that you've seen the final product, I'll post about the process we took in designing them and a cost break down.
Did you DIY your invitations? Did it end up saving you money or costing you more?
