Really nice shower invitation! This idea was taken from two other cards I found online and a combined them. I love the idea of the pocket to hold the actual invitation while still seeing some of the invitation!
I used my computer to print my invitation on transparent vellum. The size of my invitation determined the size of my background pieces and my pocket. I stamped the pink pocket on the inside back and on the outside front with versamark in the heart stamp from Petite Patterns. The pocket is held together with the organdy ribbon (no tape or glue).
The vellum invitation is placed on a white background CS stamped in pink with the hearts and it is 1/8" bigger all around than the vellum. This is then placed on a sliver CS cut to be 1/8" bigger all around than the white CS with hearts. Use double stick tape to put them all together. Cut out tag from white CS (or use tag punch) and stamp diamond ring from Mini Mates in silver. Make a background out of silver CS for the tag. Use the rectangle 2-holed punch to punch tag and tie up pocket with tag and organdy ribbon.

Love this invitation and would like to CASE it. Could you provide me with the dimensions of the pocket card piece and directions on where to score the cardstock?
Thank you for sharing this beautiful invitation!
