I finished the invitations for the upcoming birthday bash in honor of
my dad and his twin brother’s 75th birthday. It really is quite
challenging to combine creativity with age-appropriateness. Birthday
party invitations usually call for balloons and confetti and fun stuff
like that. However, those things really didn’t seem to fit. This is
what I came up with. It is really easy to make. Take a look:
I used drywall tape to break up the plain blue background. I’m
telling you, every papercrafter needs to have drywall tape on-hand.
They have lived on opposite sides of the country pretty much all of
their lives, so there really aren’t many pictures of just the two of
them together. I thought this baby picture was cute, no?
I love this denim ribbon by Stampin’ Up! I wish I could buy/make denim-looking paper. (Hmmm…does anyone know how?)
Be sure to cover the brad fasteners with a piece of cardstock to make sure your finished product is nice and clean-looking.
