Last week I guest posted over at Sugar Bee...just in case you didn't get there to see it, here is the replay...
The finished invitation...just in case you aren't interested in how its done...
To make the invitations as shown, you'll need:
fold-over note cards
large oval punch or oval cutting system
First I printed out the invitations on the inside of the foldover notes (they're on sale right now at our Hobby Lobby.)
I tried to my best to center it, but its a little off. It's ok, I just need to be sure I note that when cutting the oval on the other side.
Using my trusty Creative Memories cutting system, I cut an oval on the front of the fold over note. This is the window that the invite information will show through.
Next, I measured the blue vellum, then used scalloped pinking shears and made the decorative edge.
I attached the vellum with tacky glue just around the edges.
Then I attached the top of the card to the bottom.
To finish it off, I simply added some embellishments I created from my Cricut.
(I just realized I forgot to add the rhinestones for air bubbles coming out of the fish's mouth...oh well.)
These are quick,easy and inexpensive invitations for your next pool or beach party.
