Penguin Birthday Invites

January 16, 2017

My daughter wanted to send invitations to her grandparents to invite to her birthday luncheon. Here are the invitations she designed and helped to make.

The card without the belly band on


The card all opened up


Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  We started with the card bases. I scored and folded each pink card base 2 and 1/8t inches from the sides. Next, we die cut the heart from the front panels. It took two passes to cut each heart. Lastly, we dry embossed the front panels with a Darice embossing folder.

I die cut stitched rectangles from some white card stock for the inside of each card. We stamped the images and then my daughter colored them in using Crayola Markers and gel pens. Once she was done coloring I adhered each white panel inside the pink card bases.

Then, we made the belly bands to help keep the cards closed in the envelopes. I cut strips of black card stock and white heat embossed the sentiment. Lastly, I carefully centered and folded the strip around the card. I used some tape runner to adhere the strip to itself in the back.

I plan on printing the information for the luncheon on some pink card stock and die cutting it out to add to the bottom of each invitation.
