Do you have that cup of joe or hot tea handy? That's good let's get started! Last week during the InKing Royalty Blog Hop I showed you the 3D flower arrangement that my Glam-Girlie and I were creating for her birthday party. Today I thought I would show you her birthday party invitation.
I am loving how these are turning out! This is the third and final attempt for her party invitation. I will not show you the first two HUGE mistake cards. Well, I could if I had photos, but the trash has already ran today. Yep, I put those right to the waste basket. But don't you just love these?
For these invitations you will need a 12"x12" piece of card stock. I used the Blushing Bride from SU. You will then cut the card stock down to 9"x9". A few years ago I attended an InKing gathering in Atlanta. At this gathering the wonderful and talented Mary Fish was in attendance, and I won from her stash of prizes the envelope punch board.
I promise, I haven't gone off on another tangent. That great tool, I used to create the perfect fold and round corners for the invitations. I love a tool that you can do multiple uses for other than just one.
The measurement for this invitation will be a 6"x6" with the interior being a perfect 6" square. I cute the Cherry Cobbler card stock to a 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" square with an additional Blushing Bride piece of 5"x5" for the printed Invitation.
To make the invitation stay closed I created a band using DSP pink paper and the crown is from Lifestyle crafts Cutting dies, crown cupcake liner. The crown beside the invite you can use for cupcakes for your party.
I cut the sides off of the crown and put a sweet flower sentiment that I colored with Copic Markers, to hide the seam just a bit better.
A final look of the two projects completed so far for our Cinderella Theme Birthday party.
Thank you for stopping by today! I love hearing your comments. If you have any questions or need help in creating your own cards or invitations I am happy to help. Until next time we enjoy each other's company.
Happy Cookin' & Happy Stampin'!
