Ladybug invitations with matching handmade envelopes!!!

My co-worker, Naomi's daughter is celebrating her 3rd birthday, and she wanted these invitations she found on Etsy, so I said I could make something like them.
What do you think?  Pretty close, eh?  Here is it opened...

Here is what 25 invitations and handmade envelopes look like.  Yes, I cut and folded each envelope myself because she wanted matching envelopes. I used the Simply Scoring tool, started with an 7-7/8" square and using the Diagonal Score tool, I scored at 3-1/8" and 4-1/8" on opposite sides of the envelope.
 My friend Erica always told me to package my cards, (only because I didn't package her cards so nicely, "Sorry Erica, you were one of my first customers!") so I have taken her advice to heart each time I have some cards to give.  I had some leftover paper from the invitations and some nice corrugated paper I had "saved for something."  I decided it was saved to make the packaging for Naomi's cards.

Thanks for checking in!
