Swimmin! Invites


Our middle son will celebrate his 10th Birthday next week, so I had to finish the party invites so he can take them to school today. It's going to be a swimming party so I thought Just Beachy would be the perfect set.


These are really simple, but fun cards. I just do card fronts for party invites. These were night photos so they don't show the color as well as I'd like.

I rolled the Lazy Days wheel with VersaMark on the Kraft layer and then stamped off and then stamped the PARTY word (from Calendar Cues) in Ruby Red. The wheel is also rolled on the Ruby Red layer.

I wanted to give the feel of a porthole into the ocean so I cut out the ovals with my Big Shot, then cut a large circle punch hole in the middle. (Then I used that circle for the tucked in sentiment). I popped up one fish, stamped one to look like he's in the distance, and tied it with hemp. Just a couple more circles added as accents. Very mail-able too, which some will have to be.

He thinks they're great - but I know he's just excited about the party!
