Dad's Day Invites!




Hello and Welcome:

I was invited by the creative ladies over at Decorate to Celebrate to come up with something that can be used for a party and it had to be created with the "theme" Father's Day well the first thing that came to my mind was invitations.  A party doesn't/or can't begin without them.  It all starts at the invitation and you want the right one.

I got the idea for this invite from a Stampin' Up Demonstrator--Tami. here is her video

Tami made these cards and I liked them but they were just a little too big for what I wanted so I adjusted the size. I added a tie to make it look like a dress shirt.

Recipe:

Card Stock (K & Co., Stampin' Up)
Momento Ink
Paper Trey Ink Stamp
Paper Trimmer
Scoring Board
