Today, I am sharing with you how I made my first ever party invitations.
I recently picked up a 25 pack of this gorgeous 12x12 paper by Basic Grey. It is the cumin paper from the Spice Market collection, and has a blue patterned side and a soft white and tan textile looking side. This was the only paper I used on these cards, minus the kraft card base.
To decorate the outside of the cards, I rounded the corners of my card base and the patterned paper. Once I adhered the patterned paper, I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching around the outside of the card. To make the banner, I flipped a sheet of the paper over to the white and tan side and cut out a banner. On it, I embossed the "you're invited" stamp from Avery Elle's You're Invited stamp set in Ranger's Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I also added two small pearls to the left and right side of the text.
On the inside of the card, I stamped again the same "you're invited" stamp, but this time, I added the what,where,when, and rsvp stamp. This stamp is a great way for the person using the invitations to add their information! I also used a border stamp by Recollections (classic borders stamp set) to add some decoration to the inside. I used a brown dye ink for the stamping on the inside of the card.
I hope you enjoyed these invitations! I had such a great time making them. Thanks for visiting www.papercraftingbyg.com!
