Mackenzie will be 5 years old in September, which means she will have her fifth birthday party coming up. My mom has made all of her invitations, except this year! At 33, I finally made my own invitation. Actually, I think I sent out an e-vite for the 3rd birthday, but my mom has done all of the others. Most of the time if I make cards (even at Christmas), my mom has designed and cut all of the cards and I just assemble, but not this time. I did everything - designed, printed, cut and assembled! Aren't you proud of me?! ;)
I even had all of the supplies and didn't have to order anything from my mom! In order to accomplish this, I made all of the invitations a little different. I bought some lalaloopsy images from an etsy shop and created the invite sheet in photoshop and then printed it on photo paper I've had for a while. I made the background colors a little different to add even more variety.
Then I used all of striped paper I had to make the folded covers. Polka
dotted paper from the same Stampin' up paper pack for the wrappers and
cut out flowers in coordinating cardstock. I cut most of it out in one
day and sorted it into the color combinations I wanted.
Since I was on a roll, I was going to start assembling them that night, but then realized I was out of my glue tape. So 10 days later I finally got my tape from Amazon and was able to assemble the invitations this past Saturday.
I only have pictures of these remaining 5 because I actually put the rest in envelopes and addressed them, so that they are ready to send out in a couple of weeks. I did keep 2 invitations (one for each girl) as keepsakes. One day I'll scrapbook! ;)
