A Blues Clues Birthday Soirre!

blues clues party invitationUsing a google image search, I found a picture of a character that my daughter really likes, or that was appropriate for the upcoming party. I opened the image in Adobe Photoshop, and resized it to fit on the color background that matched a color in the photo that I thought was appropriate. Make sure you leave enough room for the words you want on the invitation front. Also in Adobe Photoshop, I chose a funky font in a coordinating colour to type whatever text I want.

I then open a separate blank file of the same size, I color it the same color as the background of the front and type my info such as what time and date the party is and the rsvp information. I send these to my local digital photo processing center. When i pick up the finished invitation fronts and backs, I take them home and stick them to either side of a coordinating color cardstock about 1/4 an inch bigger on each side. I use scrapbooking sticky square adhesives.

NOTE: i do not recommend selling invitations you've made with a licensed character on them. I am not sure about the copyright rules on that, so I don't do it. Invitations that I have made with characters on them are strictly for sending to friends and family.

Blues Birthday Invitation

I made this invitation all by hand. I wish there was a Cricut cartridge for that. lol I found a photo of Blue that I liked, printed it on the back of the blue cardstock and cut it out that way. I used some clear puffy paint type stuff to make her nose glossy. I free handed the party hat and used a punch for the ribbons on top of the hat and pop dots to make her head stick out some. Pretty simple. lol I used up scraps of paper to make the invitation!
The party information was printed on to white card and matted on to patterned paper.
