Birthday Invitation

Its the 25th and today is Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. I think for the past two years, I would have missed couple of hops? I didn’t want to miss this one because the inspirational picture is “awesome”
Aqua and yellow colour combination and those stripes & polka dots are just so pretty. Loved it straightaway. I decided to do Birthday Invitations instead of cards this time. So here is my take on the picture
Birthday Invitation
Cardstock: Stampers Select White and Aqua Mist cardstock from PTI
Stamp sets: Cupcake Collection from PTI. Party Elements- Critter from Clean and Simple Stamps
Inks: Summer Sunrise and Aqua Mist from PTI and Stazon Black Ink
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder, Cuttlebug, Brayer, Frost White Stickles.
I inked the striped embossing folder with PTI’s Summer Sunrise ink and embossed a white cardstock panel.Β  Then stamped the invitation on another white card panel. Adhered this on the embossed card. Diecut and stamped cupcake and adhered using foam squares. Added some frost white stickles to the cupcake. Finally matted the entire card on a Aqua Mist cardstock panel.
This is just a sample. Now I need to make 12 more of it for a friend’s toddler birthday party πŸ™‚
Thanks so much for visiting and happy hopping!
