Emma's Birthday Invites

I have to thank Mary for sharing the idea for these little cards with me. She pointed me to a tutorial for them on Dawn Mercedes's blog, and I decided to use them for my daughter's birthday invitations. Emma and I both really love them! I didn't have any paterned paper at all that would match the Hello Kitty stickers. Everything was either too bright or too dull, so I ended up stamping my own on a sheet of printer paper. It's been a long time since I actually stamped a background. I've mostly been using paterned paper for a long time, and I must say that stamping backgrounds again was quite fun!

Recipe
Stamps: Love and Joy (T-2659), You're Invited (T-1203)
Ink: Palette Noir Pad (TT-220), Palette Belle Rose Pad (TT-193)
Paper: Pink 1 (V-91), Red 1 (V-118), Printer Paper
Tools: Super Jumbo Circle Punch (D-73), Mega Scallop Circle Punch
Other: Hello Kitty Stickers (SandyLion), Pink Ribbon (Offray), Metallic Colored Staples (D-56)

Beautiful! I'm going to case this for a baby shower. I think I'm going to put the pocket on a 5.5" x 4.25" background so I can put it in a regular envelope...not sure until I try it! Love your blog!
