Sketched Birthday Invites

Hello there! Are you in need of Birthday invites? If so, I have a cute idea for YOU! I’ve taken Velum Envelopes that I have made with the Diagonal Score Plate of my Simply Score Tool (for an A2 size card, this envelope will fit a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card), cut paper at 7 3/4 inch square. Score at 3 1/8 and 4 1/8, wiht the finished size envelope being 5 3/4 x 4 1/2. Perfect!

Supplies Used:

  • Melon Mambo Card Stock
  • Daffodil Delight Card Stock
  • Vellum Paper
  • Diagonal Score Plate and Simply Score Tool

  • Stampin Write Markers – Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo

I love the non-traditional use of the envelopes by using the side of the envelope as the opening. Using the vellum lets you sneak a peek to what is inside, and gives the invite an extra pop of color behind the greeting on the front of the envelope (being used as part of the card). The back of the card that pulls out would be where you would give the information on the party. Hope this gives you a creative spark for your next party invite creation. Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy the day! Get inky and make some pretty things!
