Birthday invitation card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!! I am so much looking for the weekend and time for crarting and gardening. The tulips are just about to bloom :). I just love this season!!!

Sadly, I don´t have any new tulip photos to share quite yet, so instead I´ll share a custom birthday invitation card I created with you today:

For this card I used only white cardstock which I stamped in various colours using different  stamps from Stampin´ Up! The die cut piece in the middle is cut with a Tonic Studios die cut die. This is a very clean and simple card in style without any mixed media on it. I make CAS cards very seldom, but this turned out very much to my liking.

Wishing you all a lovely, crafty weekend,
xxx, Sanna


Invitation – Canvas Corp Brands

Hi there, I absolutely adore the new Vino & Ale collection from Canvas Corp Home Basics. It is just so much fun & perfect for so many occations!! Like for example for invitations. Who of us is not familiar with the situation where the daily life takes it´s toll and we hardly find time to meet with friends?

How about preparing some invitations in beforehand and planning a nice get together? Maybe with some good food and something nice to drink? This is where the new Vino & Ale collection comes handy :). Did I already say how much I like this collection?? It is so versatile and easy to combine with various styles & designs. I´ve even made a very masculine birthday card using this collection (will share that in near future too :)…). I am having so much fun with this collection!

So back to the cards. I´ve used the „Little Red Pages on Kraft“ as a background for my cards:

Little Red Pages on Kraft

First I cut brown/kraft cardstock to match the size of the red pages, folded the cardstock and adhered some washi tape for interest along the fold.

I find the pages paper very practical! Just cut them apart and you have 6 pages for a minibook or for 6 cards! Or for a Menu card even! Simple and easy!

Next I added fussy cut pictures from the „Vino & Cheese on Kraft“ paper on the cards:

After fussy cutting the pictures I added some 3D foam behind them. Before adhering the red pages on their places I added a golden ribbon for additional detail. After that I just placed the Vino & Ale pictures on their places.

Next I just stamped the word „invitation“ several times on kraft cardstock and then fussy cut the sentiments and glued them on their places!

And this is how the finished invitations look like!

So now all I need to do is to put these into mail and plan a nice evening with frieds!! When was the last time you made some hand made invitation cards??

Have a great weekend,
