Grandma's 85th Birthday Party Invitations...

Hey Ya’ll,

This is a sample of the invitations we have made for my Grandma’s 85th birthday party. We had to put together 30 of these, but they went much quicker than we thought.
The cartridges used were Sentimentals, Heritage, Calligraphy Collection, Serenade and Cindy Loo. The Frame is from Sentimentals and cut at a height of 4.30. The corner is from Heritage and cut at a height of 2.00. The shadow from Calligraphy Collection was welded to spell out 85th. This was at a height of 1.30. The 85th was then cut without the shadow feature at a height of 1.30 for the layer. The flowers were from a group of flowers on Serenade and cut at a height of 2.50. The flourishes are from Cindy Loo and cut at a height of 1.00

We used a variety of papers for these and loved the way they all turned out. We used chocolate ink for everything.

Sorry for the distortion on the inside, but this has all of the personal information for the party. We printed it on white card stock and inked it. The card is 4 ½” x 5 ½”. The mats are 4 ¼” x 5 ¼” and the sentiment mat is 3 ¼” x 4 ¼”.
It took a while, but we were thrilled with the way they turned out. Hope you like them! Sincerely, Bobby & Jill.
