That’s what Lisa and Mike did with this laser cut with gold glitter and raised print, it’s an awesome way to set the tone for a wedding that is one part elegant and one part insanely cool.

Pocket cards remain one of our most popular invitation ensembles as it keeps so much information neatly tucked together for such a pretty presentation. Here, we have matched it with a gold glitter belly band, a decorative tag and matching envelope liner.
Pocket cards and folders come in all the shimmer colours that we carry and a few matte finishes as well. Pocket cards are great when you want to decorate the front and be able to open the card without removing the decoration – as above, the lace and monogram stay in place so the card always looks great. Pocket Folders Pocket folders can be sealed with a tag like this one or wrapped in a removable ribbon or belly band to open.
