Birthday Cards

Monday, May 16, 2011


So finally the invitations for my daughters shower are done. These are the final result after I had her visit Joann's in Pa. for her to choose the right purple.
It came to 1o different cuts from the Cricut to create, with 2 strips also cut for the band.

The first thing that I did was to choose the scalloped Invitation of page 72 of the Tie the Knot cartridge and size for it to fit in the A 2 envelope. Next was a tag to weld with the Elegant Cake "Celebrate". The tag was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and then both sides of the invitation was done with the D'vine Swirls folder before putting it together.

The flower was from Tie the Knot and was sized in the Gypsy at 1.65" so that i could shadow at 1.75" with the lighter shade. The leaves also were cut the same size but cut two of the leaves and one was mirrored and the smaller leaf was hid. On the tag, I put the flower and the leaves were put on the envelope.

Using the computer, the info was printed and sized to fit on the bottom of the tag so that when you lifted the tag the info was located there.

I cut a strip of green card stock 1.25" and then punched both edges with a Martha Stewart punch. I could not find the right color ribbon so then I did put a 1/4" strip of the purple on the green and then the ribbon so that it would give it the right shade.

All the invitations scattered on the table before getting them put together in the envelopes.
