Batman Birthday Invites!!
I am really excited for my nephews 5th birthday and even more excited that I wll be able to head home to see my family for this event. When I called my nephew on the phone and asked him what kind of party he wanted (part of me was hoping he would say Toy Story - so that I could justify the purchase of that cricut cartridge) he thought - for a very long time before he settled on Batman. Hmmmm, now that is a cartridge that I did not own, so one late night me and Ebay had a battle and I won the cart for $10 - YEAH!!! I had so much fun thumbing through the booklet for this cartridge and immediately ideas began flowing through my head.
This is the inside of the invite:
I used the envelope on page 59 of the handbook, cut at fit to page with a 12x12 mat. The invite is computer printed and layered with yellow cardstock.
This is the front of the invite:
I used the batman sign from page 37. I just used the layer and cut it out in yellow. I figured the black backgound was enough to make it pop. I outlined the symbol with yellow stickles to make it stand out a little more.
This is the back of the invitation. It just has the batman symbol that comes with the envelope. I used some envelope gum to give the symbol the ability to close the invite.
I am mailing these off to my sister on Tuesday and cannot wait to hear my nephews reaction!
Hello everyone and thank you so much for visiting me on cuttin' up. I started along this crafting journey in August of 2009 as a way to relax and express myself and it has done that and so much more. I have met so many wonderful people and have unleashed a side of myself that I never knew existed and I must say I love her!
It is amazing how far my talents and knowledge has come since last August and I am so excited to see where my creativity will take me next.
Thanks so much for stopping to visit my blog and hope that you will follow me on this journey.
