50th Birthday Invites

Good morning,

Woohoo...get me posting 2 weeks in a row and today I'm sharing some invites I was asked to make for a work colleague who celebrated her 50th Birthday recently.

The brief was very simple...a black and white colour theme with a formal/elegant design. I opted for an A6 gatefold design and printed the design papers directly onto hammered cardstock.

This is the inside of the invites...again a fairly simple design with a black mat and silver border to frame the text. They were a great hit with my colleague which thankfully was a job well done!

Digital Design Papers: Carol Clarke
Card Stock: White Hammered Card, Black Card and Silver Mirri Card from Hobbycraft
Embellishments: Black Organza Ribbon and White Eyelets
Tools: Cricut Machine to cut numbers, Crop-a-dile to set eyelets
Font: Calamity Jane
