Invitation Books

Trying to create something that I love, but be reasonable and realistic at the same time.  I'm thinking about simple invitations, but adding ribbon or envelope liners, or additional cards.  Or I can print one piece and add it to a DIY setup, and add layers of papers.  Here are some of the things that have got my wheels turning.
Of course I still love this custom one...

An etsy find.  DIY, envelopper or paper source style, but could add printed pieces from Carlson Craft.
A simple letterpress invite.  Could do only the invitation card in letterpress, but could add an envelope liner, and additional flat printed pieces to this.
A Nautical Invitation Story on Oh So Beautiful Paper

Love the "You're Invited!" and the "RSVP" printed envelope liners.

I like that the 'rope' is tying everything together here, so it still feels like one presentation. Could use a rattan style or a navy and white bakers twine.
Vellum wrapping is a nice simple option for holding everything together.
A little detail on a striped liner.  Could this be a sticker?
Also thinking about a navy and white striped liner, or a solid navy liner, or another map liner.  Could print a text liner, or any of these as a belly band.  Perhaps a matching belly band! With a sticker! And an anchor!  Woohoo!
