princess birthday

Good Thursday morning stampers! Yesterday I told you that I'd show you the invitations that I'm helping a friend make for her daughter's 1st birthday party. Here it is! I'm actually pretty pleased with the way it has come out. It is a post card style so the invitation itself doesn't open up...the deets for the party are on the back of the card.

It is kind of hard to see the details of the card but I stamped the castle above the patterned paper piece, added some glitter pen on both the ribbons and the hat and also on the "ribbons" on her dress.

On the details side of the of the invitation I used hearts and flowers from the set to make a border at the top and bottom then I sponged some Pink Pirouette on the edges to soften the white a little. We played around with the fonts in Word to come up with something that looked "regal" and came up with "Harrington." My friend picked the wording that she liked and taa daa!

There you have it. I am done coloring the images, my friend cut all the patterned paper and put it on the Kiwi Kiss, and will now just work on putting these together for her. There are 35 all together but I think I can have it all done by this evening.

I hope your Thursday is a good one and I'll see ya all tomorrow!

Card details:
Stamps: SNSS Princess
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Pink Piourette, Kiwi Kiss, PTI White
Ink: Pallette Black, Riding Hood Red
