Alexander’s Birthday Invitations

Red Card

Blue Card

Card: Real Red; Baja Breeze; Whisper White; Very Vanilla; Brilliant Blue
Ink: Real Red, Brilliant Blue
stamp sets: Bitty Birthday; Pleas Come
Accessories: stampin’ write markers (bold brights), SNAIL, Spiral Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Cutter

This took a bit of thinking. I originally just stamped the bitty birthday pictures onto small squares and backed it with matching card and stamped the please come directly onto the main card but that didn’t look good so then I stamped onto a rectangle of either white or vanilla and rounded every corner or used the spiral punch down the left hand side. It still looked too plain and I thought about using ribbon and then decided to cut strips of white or vanilla with a strip down the middle of either real red or brilliant blue. I then stamped the please come in either the red or blue to match the card stock and then used the SNAIL to place everything on the main card of red or baja breeze.

Now to use my stampin’ write markers to put in all the details. I also used the markers to colour in the pictures – using the two main colours of red and blue again. I tried other colours but it looked better just sticking to two colours.
