Welcome to Would You Ever Guess Wednesday! The day of the week where we, the member's of Erica's My Cricut Craft Room Design Team, create projects using nothing but the creative features on our cartridges, helping you find the full value of the catridges we all love to spend out hard earned cash on : ) Once you are done here, hop over there to see more projects!
Today I'm excited to share with you an invitation I made for my daugther's 13th birthday party. We have a local tea house that serves a proper "English High Noon Tea", complete with scones and tea sandwhiches. Its a lovely place - and we wanted to create just the right invitation. I found just the thing on "A Child's Year" - not the first place you'd go to look for a 13-year old's party invitation.
A Child's Year features a card making button! Choose the proper size (I chose a 5 x 7 card, and cut at 5") and embelish at will. I also thought it would be neat to cut the image again using patterned paper and hand cutting the tea pot away from the card for a layered look, but thats not what my daughter wanted.
The letter is from Sophisticated and the bows are handmade with a bow easy. I really liked that when you open the card, there is a little tea pot icon inside as well. We printed the party info on velum and placed that inside using vellum tape (can't see it).
