Hip Hip Hooray, You're Invited!


Welcome to the PARTY and what's more important than an adorable invitation to join the party!

I used the birthday package side of the polka dot paper along with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit to make the "envelope" for the invite.  A Hip Hip Hooray stamped on a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the framelit and tied off with some of the same Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon.

The front of the invitation is shown.  I cut these out with the Lots of Labels framelits and this is the largest of the set.  Stamped the Bakers Man in the corner and watercolored him in with the Watercolor Pencils.  Up and off to the side I inked the greeting "who's having a birthday" with our Stampin Write Markers and then stamped it directly onto the invite.  To add some dimension, I stamped the Surprise greeting on a separate piece, started by inking the whole image in Sweet Sugarplum and then the lower half of the image in the Rich Razzleberry ink pad to create my own ombre effect!  Breathe on the stamp once you've inked the second color to remoisten the ink before actually stamping onto the paper.  This piece was cut using one of the Project Life Cards & Tags (i think!) framelit sets and layered up at an angle and popped with dimensionals!  For the finishing touch and to assist in pulling the invitation out of the pocket, I used a hand held hole punch and then threaded the Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Stitched Edge ribbon through it and then tied that off with a little Old Olive Bakers twine!

On the back side you could print the important party details, "who, what, where & when..."

Hope you liked it!
