I'd like to share some sweet little birthday invites I've made for my daughter. Malayla is turning 10 in a few weeks, so I have agreed to a small slumber party. I didn't see the point of buying a pack of invites if she was only inviting 4 girls over for the slumber party. So I opted to create four very unique birthday invites instead.
I grabbed three large tags, coated them with gesso (on both sides), embossed them, then stuck them together with washi tape. Choosing the colours was the hardest bit - I had no idea what she wanted. So I went with all-out bright colours (how unusual for me, NOT!!!). Once I had decided on the colours I used Tattered Angels Chalkboard mists to create the background, then inked over the top with distress inks in matching colours. I die-cut some doilies, flowers, tickets, and t-shirts. (In case you are wondering what those black lines are on the centre page, I have simply edited out our address and mobile phone number).
I titled the invite VIP (Very Important Princess). To create this title, I used the large alphabet (Code: IDAUC0001) from Imaginarium Designs chipboard. I simply coated it with blue ink, sprayed it with Helmar vellum spray, and sprinkled blue Doodlebug glitter over the top. Once dry, I shook off the excess glitter, and adhered it tot he front of the invite. I used the exact same process for the butterfly (Code: IDT0014).
And on the last page a put a little reminder of what the girls needs to bring with them. Now the easy part is done. Next I have to organise the food and entertainment, lol! And ear plus - I'm sure I am going to need some of those.
