It's time to Party again!

And this time its my daughter's Christmas Party and also her birthday celebration that's delayed by four months :) Wondering how that happened? Her birthday falls in the 3rd week of August and this year because of Swine Flu we didn't get chance to party the way we normally do every year. We had just gathered few of her friends from the neighborhood. We started off with movie and popcorn, then we cut the cake and all kids had fun eating cake, chips and sandwiches. Neither me nor my daughter were satisfied with this celebration. We decided that once my husband returns from his business trip and we return from US we will throw another great party! Several months passed by but my daughter didn't forget the promise I had made to her - so finally I am throwing a Birthday Bash and since Christmas is around we will celebrate that as well!

Here is a picture of the invitations that I made for her birthday -


Supplies for 24 invitations:

Double Sided Cardstock (2)
A3 size white bulky paper (6)
12" Paper Trimmer
1-1/4" Circle Punch
Corner Rounder Punch
Journaling Pen (in this case - Zebra Sarasa Pink)
Tombow Adhesive
CTMH Stamps: 
    D1352 It's Your Day (For, when & where)
    D1400 Everyday Celebration (Cake)
    B1335 Grace
    K size name stamp
CTMH Stamp Pads:
    Bamboo
    Hollyhock
    Cocoa
    Chocolate

Step-by-Step Instructions:
  1. Cut 24 >> 3-1/2" x 3" cards from 2 double sided cardstock
  2. Cut 24 >> 6" x 4-1/8" paper from 6 A3 size bulky white sheets
  3. Fold all the 24 bulky white sheets into half
  4. Place the open end of each white paper half way through the 1-1/4" circle punch and cut both edges
  5. Stamp "For, When, Where" on plain side of the double sided cardstock in cocoa ink
  6. Stamp the back with "Cake base" in chocolate ink and "Cake inside" in hollyhock ink
  7. Cut four corners of each 3-1/2" x 3" card using the corner rounder punch
  8. Glue a slim portion of the white paper edges to create an envelope
  9. Stamp the front of the envelope using the Grace stamp set
  10. Create a heart shaped look by placing the short flourish next to the long flourish
  11. Write the text on the invitations 
  12. Insert the 3-1/2" x 3" card into 6" x 4-1/8" and stamp the back with your creations/logo.
This is a bit time consuming project but it is lot of fun once its all done!

Cheers,
