Crafts to "DIY" for: Adorable Bridal Shower Invitations

In a few weeks a girlfriend and I are hosting a rustic themed bridal shower. Now,  I say invitations are one of the most important pieces to any party: they set the tone of the event, giving your guests a sneak preview into what kind of party it is! 
Unable to find anything I could get in a timely manner, I opted to make my own. After browsing around Etsy for ideas, I decided on a simple design with a bow to hold it all together. You lift the front to reveal the information underneath! These turned out better than I was hoping, I can't wait to send them out! 

The base of the invitations are just brown card stock cut down with rounded corners. Some minty scrap booking paper makes for the perfect background for the whimsical bride and groom stamp! Some dark hemp at the top and ivory lace around the edge give these invitations the perfect "feel" for the upcoming shower. These were incredibly easy to make and could easily be modified for any occasion. I'm already planning our Christmas cards! 

Do you make your own cards/invites to events? Would you ever consider doing this style?
