Hey everyone! Another day off finally so I thought I would share with you a project I did for my daughter.
Sometime during the first week of the new year my daughter called from Seattle, what a great city..I could go off on a whole other subject with just that thought but keep on track Mary. She called and said "Mom could you do me a HUGE favor?" I'm thinking what the heck can I do from here but "Of course honey what ever I can do you know I will." She proceeds to tell me that Chinese New Year and her birthday are on the same day so she is having a party.
"Mom, can you make me some invites for the party?" WHAT?? can I make her invites.. OMG my ultimate dream has come true. I long for ideas to make cards for. Most of my cards I make are for card challenges. I love to enter and then I just put them in a box.
I got all the details on what she was looking for and how many she needed. She left most of it up to me to surprise her.
So I got down to work stamping and cutting. I put all those little letters through my Xyron sticker maker and what a huge time saver that was.
I used three different stamps on the invites. The banner is from Hero Arts. I love this stamp, so many uses, so much fun.
Then I had the lantern stamp for some time. I think I found it in the dollar bin at Mikes.
The third stamp is the "Time to Celebrate" I thought it worked perfect with invites and theme of the card. Last I just added a little bling to give some dimension to the card.
I decided to make envelopes, mostly because the cards are such an odd shape.
Just as an added touch I punched a scallop border at the top on the closing flap. I think it made it have just a bit of a personal touch.
I sent them off to her about a week ago and they were a hit. She loved them and sent them right out.
Maybe it's time to get started on Valentine cards.. Come back soon so I can show you what I'm up to .
