For these invitations I used my Cricut, as well as some clip art given to me by my client. My client loves funky, fun retro style and pin-up girls so this was my take on that theme. I made up a set in two different colors reflecting the colors used in that era (I'm dating myself now...)
This is the boxed set as it was presented to my client. It showcases the pink and green color combo for the first half of this set. My client specified these invitations would be hand delivered, so the envelopes I chose to use were open on top and gave a bird's eye view of the ornament card inside.
I used both glitter papers, as well as hologram papers to make this card. I also used my Martha Stewart punch to add the pine needle detail that peeks out from underneath the ornament topper.
This is a view of the back of the ornament which has all of the party details and features the clip art provided by my client. On the inside of the envelope I printed my logo on vellum so it could be seen through the window once the invitation was removed.
This is the second color combination. I switched out the silver with gold and did a semi-traditional red and green, adding in a splash of pink. You may not be able to see it from this photo, but pink was also in the patterned paper. The ribbon was wrapped around the back of the envelope and pulled through eyelets on each side. I used gold ribbon on this card and silver on the card above.
Here is a photo with the card removed. I used my Martha Steward punch for the snowflakes in the lower right-hand corner, as well as a little snowflake bling I found at Wal-Mart.
This is the opposite side of the ornament. The invitations are identical except for the color combination and choice in patterned papers.
