How to make your own wedding invitations

After looking on the internet for wedding invitations, I wasn't able to find anything to my liking. So, I decided to make my own. If you're looking for a way to save a lot of money, this probably isn't the best way. My final cost for 90 invitations was $140, but $50 was for the paper used to wrap the invitations. Here's my project list:

Canson Watercolor paper, 9 by 12, 120lbs, 10 sheets, 5 packs $8.63
Resume Paper - Ivory, 50 sheets $6.48
Vellum Paper, 29 lb, white, 100 sheets $20.98

I designed the invitations and stacked cards using Powerpoint. To use my file, be sure to download the fonts first.
