Clean and Simple (C&S) Invitations

Material list:

How to make the invitation

  1. Cut the pink card stock at 15,2cm x 11cm (fold in half)
    Cut the striped paper at 10,5cm x 14,7cm
    Cut the cherry paper at 8,5cm x 12,5cm
    Cut the invitation stripe (pink card stock) at 2cm x 9cm
  2. Glue the striped paper onto the pink card stock base
  3. Distress the edges on the cherry paper and tie the pink ribbon around it, put the metal charm on and make a knot on the front.(it might be easier to rap the ribbon around and glue on, and then cut a smaller stripe to make the knot with for the metal charm)
  4. Glue the cherry paper with the ribbon and charm on top of the striped paper.
  5. Stamp "invitation" on the small pink card stock with the embossing ink, pour embossing powder over the ink and blow off the extra powder. Heat it to make it permanent (with a heating gun or just holding it over the toaster to get heat on it)
  6. Use 3D gluedots on the small pink cardstock and center it in the middle but a bit higher, leaving some space between it and the ribbon.

Hot Tips

If you wish to add another great touch you can gently rub a inking pad (in a matching color) in the sides of the paper to give it a more rougher look. (great if you're making these for boys)

I made these for a nameparty. I made the table cards from the scraps from the invitations. The text is printed from the PC and flowers are from my stash, but you can get these flowers any where from the supermarket to a scrapbook store.
