Let's Party!

I just completed the invitations for our granddaughter's 10th birthday party.  It's a "cosmic bowling" party so neon colors were a must.  (Black lights create the neon colors as they bowl).  Fortunately I found a pack of small-sized cardstock at Michaels since my supply is packed.  I put a score sheet on the back (download from the internet) and cut the bowling pin and ball by hand.  The band around the pin is narrow washi tape.  The invitation folds at the top and the second photo shows the top of the inside.  The orange blast was cut by hand (I'm really missing my electronic cutter these days) and the letters were die cut.  I sprinkled sequins throughout the invitation.  The bottom inside contains the details about the party and was printed in black on my computer.  I put three bands of washi tape on the envelope from the label to the outside of the envelope.  I thought that set the mood pretty well and it should have been bright enough to grab the attention of the invited guests.  Let the fun begin!


  1. Aren't you just the best! Your granddaughter must love those invitations! There's no better example of "just right".

  2. Love it Diane! Just right for the pre teen and fitting for the cosmic theme!
