This may be too delayed of a response ... but just incase ...
You might browse some Martha Stewart Weddings magazines, even at the bookstore, for ideas. I'm not sure how much is online. We used Emily Post's Etiquette for information on related queries.
I just finished doing the whole shebang for my sister's wedding. We did:
order of service
party invitation (reception is 2 mos. after wedding)
including ... RSVP, labels, and directions
For the party invitations, we put the invitation, followed by the RSVP (card tucked under the return envelope flap), followed by the driving directions.
We actually used sewing to bind the vellum and whatnot together. We considered including the driving directions as a tear-out from the invitation but decided to keep it separate.
It's a lot of work but oh so fun.
I've also used clear glue and grommets to attach vellum to cards. They make eyelets, too, but that'd be more work than punching and then using ribbon. There are all kinds of ribbon and rafia. Even at the fabric store, you could look at decorative (drawing a blank on the word ... edging? finishers? there's a whole section of them, usually, for use on dresses and pillows and whatnot). One idea I'm working on is to use a fringe to decorate the card (also sewn on). That'd be too much for yours, but you might find something that works for you there. You could attach it by sewing on buttons (use a hole punch for sewing it through), too.
I hope I've given you a little something to start with! Enjoy.
