Pocket Invites

My daughter's birthday is coming up and I thought it would be fun to create some pretty invites for the sleepover she is having. I used today's try a new technique challenge on SCS to make these invites. I used two Papertrey sets. The cake stamp set as well as the beautiful blooms set that had the "birthday girl" sentiment in it. I stitched the edges to be sure they will not fall apart and dressed it up with Amy Butler DP. She loves Amy Butler fabric so I thought this would be a fun choice. The velvet flowers are Maya road and the brad Heidi swap.


If you click on these images you can see a close up of the single card and the velum detail. I love the softness the velum layer brought. I stamped the cake and flowers on the bottom white layer and then stamped the frame and sentiment on the velum itself. You can see the detail of the frame all the way around , even on the dark parts of the cake.

I think the girls will be tickled pink with these and I can't wait to show them to my daughter today!

Happy Stamping!
