I have been working away at anything that I can think of these days. I am just trying to keep my mind occupied while we wait for this little one to finally make an appearance. I decided to get a head start in planning Rhys' birthday party. Her party is not until June but I thought with the new baby I might not have as much time as I like to make invites. Right now I have all the pieces cut and the invites printed. The party location has been booked and the deposit has been put down. Now I just have to glue everything together. I figure I can do that slowly while the kids are napping or watching T.V. I find the hard part is getting into my scrap space to get things planned and cut. Now that part is done so it should be easier to get them together.
I used my Gypsy to create the template for the invite. The base is made from welding the "3" candle from Sweet Treats with the cupcake from Create a Critter. I removed the eyes and mouth from the frosting cut. The base is made from left over paper from a previous project, I had enough scraps to cut all the bottoms out. The frosting is cut from Bo Bunny Double Dot paper. I then passed it through the cuttlebug using the Swirl embossing folder. I also sprayed it with a layer of Pink Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angles. The "3" candle is cut from Bo Bunny Double Dot paper. I then used the Burnished Velvet technique to create the flame at the top of the candle. I finished it off with a pretty pink bow on the cupcake base.
This is what the back of the card looks like. I printed these with my computer after I had cut the out but before I assembled the front pieces. I created the blurry part in photoshop for privacy reasons, on the real version you can read all the information.
I am really happy how these turned out and found that even though I have to make 28 it really didn't take me very long. So Far ... LOL!
