This Free Pocket Fold Invitation Template set, exclusive to Budget Savvy Brides, is literally blooming at the seams. The set includes a coordinating invitation, RSVP card, and enclosure card. Oversize flowers in reds and pinks are set off by a gold pocket fold, for a high-end look without the high-end price tag. No one will guess you DIYed these… unless you strategically let it slip!
What you’ll need to make this project:
- Wedding Templates <– download
- Microsoft Word (Mac or PC)
- 8.5 x 11 card stock
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Gold pock fold invitation (optional)
- Double sided tape (optional)
Download the templates and save them to your computer. You should end up with three files: The invitation, and two enclosure cards. Open the templates in Microsoft Word and add your wording. The fonts used in the example are Garamond for the main text, and Splendid is the script font, which can be downloaded for free here.
Print the templates on 8.5 x 11 cardstock. 67lb paper works best, and white or cream would compliment the design nicely.
Using scissors or a paper cutter, trim along the dotted lines. The finished size of the invitation is 5 x 7″ and fits an A7 envelope. Both enclosure cards should be trimmed to 3.5 x 5″ and fit a 4-bar envelope.
Tip: Be sure to hold the paper against the top edge of the paper cutter for straight cuts.
Optional: For a polished look mount the invitation to a gold pocket fold invitation and place the enclosure cards inside. Pocket folds cost approximately $1.25-2.00 each, but really give the package a high-end look. The pocket fold shown in the picture is from Marsupial Online. A less expensive option can be found at Paper and More.
Tip: The best way to adhere the invitation to the pocket is with double-sided tape. A glue stick will cause wrinkles.
