Birthday invitations

Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you a project which kept me busy for couple of days (if not a week). My little princess is turning 6 this Sunday and we are inviting her friends to a playing house to spend some fun time together. I prepared the invitations, one version for the girls and one for the boys. All together I made 14 cards. Here is the design:


I used 2 MFT stamp sets with their coordinating dies for the images, I coloured them with Shinhan alcohol markers.


For the castle I used the brick wall MFT stencil and Hickory smoke distress ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I die cut it with the castle die-namicsΒ to build the castle of Jana princess πŸ™‚ I used the dies in the set to cut the other castle elements from dark grey cardstock. The sentiment is from Scrapfellow, stamped in black and some SSS/Lawn Fawn inks. It reads: invitation for a birthday.


For the background I sponged some Tumbled glass distress ink on a white card base. When assembling the castle I used thin 3D foam tape for more dimension. Of course I had to add a lot of clear shimmer to the images (Spectrum Noir) and emphasize the eyes with a black glaze pen.


Glossy accent is used also to make some details shining.


I did not do that on all cards, but I added a mini brad as the door knob.



For the inside I printed the details of the venue on coloured paper and die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. As it is our last birthday in the KG, I wanted to include a pic of my princess (on a swinging horse to match the theme) as a memory for all her little friends. I printed and matted hem with a white stitched rectangle and a colourful paper piece before adhering to the inside of the cards.


Of course we had to use matching envelopes: I stamped a princess and the same sentiment in black.


It was a long project, but I put my heart in it. My sweet little girl was so happy and I hope her friends enjoy these cute cards too.

I will submit this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything goesΒ and Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday


I will bring some new inspiration again soon, hope you pop in next time too.

Have a wonderful day,
