Toadally Invited :)

My great niece turns one in a few weeks, and her mom wanted a little assistance on the invitations for her party. Everything before she was born was done in frogs - including her room and shower. So, we went with that theme for the party.

The Cricut was used for the green card base. The frog (Paper Dolls) is welded to the crown (Paper Dolls), and the crown is welded to the rectangle base (George). All of that was cut, welded together, in green. The crown was cut again in yellow and adhered to the crown shape on the card. A little sparkle was added to the top of each crown to make it a little more 'royal.' We drew each smile by hand, added flower brads to the Primas, and adhered the flowers with Glue Dots.

The inside of the invitation was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the Cuttlebug. A strip of dots was embossed down the side of each of the pink layers (also cut from George on the Cricut), as well. The adorable butterfly was cut and embossed with the Butterfly Combo set for the Cuttlebug.

We made 30 invitations, and they were a good bit of work - i.e. .... I was cussin' by the end of it. :)

But .... she's worth it.

By the way ... all invitation pictures were taken by Rebecca Roberts.

The Caitlyn picture is ALL mine. :)

Have a great day .... and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!!!
