Fall Autumn Wedding Pocketfold Invitation {Updated}

Here is an updated version of my pocketfold fall/autumn wedding invitation. It’s 5″x7″ when folded. The invitation panel was made with My Digital Studio and the leaves are hand stamped, from Season of Friendship stamp set.

To keep it closed, I made a belly band out of card stock, embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. The medallion is die cut with Apothecary Accents Framelits, stamped with “You’re Invited” from For the Bride stamp set. I paper pierced around the edges with the new Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. Then, to define the edges a bit, I sponged soft suede ink on the edges of the medallion.

Another option for the closure is the medallion with an initial. I stamped the A with Early Espresso ink and added the leaves from Season of Friendship stamped in More Mustard ink around the edges.

Here is the view of the pocketfold invitation fully opened. Enclosure cards fit into the pocket.

Fall/Autumn DIY Wedding Ideas

I’ve been pretty quiet the past week or so, because THIS is what I’ve been up to!

Wedding cake, invitations, decorations, etc. Not MY wedding–my brother in law and my new sister in law got married over the weekend in a beautiful, rustic, perfect fall wedding.

I offered to help with invitations, cake, and anything else they needed. Here are the results!

Cake:

Carrot Cake

Caramel Apple Favors

The apples were dipped in melted caramel (Kraft caramels worked the best!), chopped walnuts & heath bar bits. We used twigs from my yard as a stick and tied the bags closed with various colors of raffia. I made the thank you tag with the Day of Gratitude stamp set, Very Vanilla card stock, and punched them out with a 1 1/8″ Circle Punch.

This is the outside of a 5″ x 7″ finished size fall wedding invitation. The card stock used includes Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, and Watercolor Paper. The image is from Branch Out and I also used the Very Vintage Wheel in the background. Across the front, I also added some 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon.

Inside, I printed the invitation on Very Vanilla card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip. The RSVP card is stamped with Branch Out again. On the inside, opposite the wording, is a pocket to tuck in the RSVP card.
