You may be wondering why I am posting this. Well, initially it was going to be a surprise party (which you will see on the inside). But she accidentally found out about it so I am able to share the invite without having to worry that she'll see it. It actually works out better this way because we were having a hard time coming up with a way to get her to the restaurant without her becoming suspicious. Problem solved! :)
Here is how I made the invite:
- This is a gate fold card. To create it, I took a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of textured Bermuda Bay card stock. It was scored 2 1/8" on both sides and folded into the center.
- The Medallion image was inked up in Versamark and stamped off-centered (over the seam). It was then clear heat embossed.
- Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain was added around the card and tied in the front. TIP: I used a piece of Melon Mambo card stock on the back of the card to help keep the ribbon secure.
- Images from Great Friend were inked in Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay and stamped onto Whisper White. I used a 1 3/8" circle punch to crop the images and layered it onto a Rich Razzleberry scallop circle.
- I used a Crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top of the tag.
- Silver Elastic cord was used to tie the tag to the ribbon. Before knotting it, I added a Filigree Brad.
- For the inside of the card, I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP for the sides. The invitation information was printed off my computer.
- The final touch was a Crushed Curry eyelet border at the bottom.
