Christmas Party Invites - 20139:01 AM
So much for using a lot of color.
In my previous post I showed a photo of where I found my inspiration.
From that photo it seems I have just taken the yellow. Mustardy yellow has been kind of a thing with me this year. I just love it. In the end the green and the aqua were just too much for my eyes to look at. Too busy.
I was working in my dark office - I apologize for the photo quality. Here is the invite. I like how the fonts are working together. I like to use a print and a script together, and usually just keep it to 2 fonts. The fonts I used are Amatic SC Regular and Mardian.
Strips of music were cut from an old book.
A stack of Kraft paper was cut.
To assemble I just angled the music across the kraft paper, laid the invite on top, and stapled them all together.
I had bought a few packs of little paper flowers last year in the dollar section at Michaels. I ran across them, and decided I would use them on the invites. They are glued on with Elmer's.
Envelopes are from Paper Source - curry - size A6.
Also, I am now on Instagram - lynda_happenstance
I'm bummed I didn't start sooner. It's pretty fun.
Lastly - love the stamps! This kind of color I can deal with :) I also used a white pen to address the envelopes. I picked up the pen at Paper Source as well.
I'm getting some of our carpet cleaned this morning - and then tomorrow I will put up the front room Christmas tree! The house just looks so much better at Christmas.
Oh - Gosh. I almost forgot the wording that I got from that commercial - Shelly says she like to go out for drinks and eats. So, drinks and eats it is!
