I made my wedding invitations from Signature Pocketfolds in Teal-Canvas. I designed and printed the invite cards and inserts on white cardstock. The pocketfold was sealed with white cardstock bands (with a printed pattern to match the invite cards). Tags were then added and hand addressed to our guests (in place of an inner envelope). I also used white square flap envelopes and white European flap RSVP envelopes (not shown).
I made these invites for my wedding in August. All the paper and envelopes were from Cards & Pockets. I used:

This wedding invitation was made using Bronze Metallic Signature 5x7 Pocket Fold.
Each invitation was custom cut matted of Champagne Metallic cardstock and Copper Metallic cardstock.
The invitations were made using Printable Cream Cardstock cut to fit the matting wrapped at the top with Double-faced Satin Copper Ribbon.
Each closure and top of invitation frond was cut using the Champagne Metallic and Copper Metallic Cardstock.
Each table was also decorated using the same paper for the table names and place cards. I also made custom programs, and have only 5 left over! It was a lot of fun! :-)
For our wedding, we were on a tight budget but i had always wanted to do a pocket fold invitation. Cardsandpockets made that possible!

My friend Heather wanted invitations for her library themed wedding, so I helped her design these with a bookmark concept in mind.. since we couldn't find pockets like these, we made each one out of your fabulous merlot cardstock! We really loved the final product!
I used Rectangolo Pocket Fold in Milk Chocolate and the 5.25x7.25 Envelope in Milk Chocolate.
Wrapped the Pocket Folder in a canvas-like fabric (since we are getting married at an art gallery!) and sealed them with a wax stamp!

I used the signature pocketfold in coffee bean with a clover mat. White envelopes are also from Cards & Pockets.
This is our invitation. We used everything from Cards & Pockets because it was so much easier to order and they had pre-cut pieces!
The pocketfold is the Signature Pearl Metallic. Its beautiful in person, the photo does it no justice. The invitation itself was printed on the 4.5 x 6.5 pre-cut paper (Invitation Mat) in snow white. The inserts are on the 3.5 x 6.75 pre-cut paper in snow white as well. Behind the invitation mat is a fuchsia metallic mat which adds color and is really nice quality paper. The fuchsia square you can see to the left of the photo is on the outside flap of the invitation and holds our 2 x 2 monogram. The fuchsia square is 2.25 inch. Finally the envelopes were 5.25 x 7.25 white envelopes. Very nice quality envelope as well.
I loved the quality of everything and anyone I've talked to at Cards & Pockets was very nice and will help you anyway they can! I would defiantly recommend anyone to buy from them! Good Luck to everyone!

Our monograms were also printed on Cream cardstock with a Bronze backing. We added the Rose colored ribbon to tie it altogether, and matched it with a ribbon around the bronze mat.

The pocketfold was the Signature PocketFold Gold Leaf (Metallic). We layered that with the invitation mat in cranberry (metallic). The invitation itself was the snow white 4.5x6.5 with color printing full bleed, printed by Cards and Pockets. The three enclosures were cream puff . The closure was a custom cut cranberry (metallic) 2" x 2.5" mat, on which we mounted a photo sticker with our engagement picture. We mounted a magnet under the closure so that the invitation could be reclosed after opening.
