Baby’s taking a nap… Laundry is in the dryer… Time to squeeze in a little card-making time!!

I’ve been working on putting together invitations for Abbey’s 3rd birthday party and they are coming along pretty well! She decided this year she wanted to have a fairy princess themed party and she loves Tinkerbell so that was the starting point. Her favorite color is purple and she is VERY girly so I tried to make the invitations as “Abbey” as I could. Here is the starting sketch for what I had in mind >>

I found some adorable Tinkerbell stamps online and decided to emboss Tink and a butterfly onto a shape to add dimension. The party colors I decided on were purple (of course), pink, and green, so I used the purple (a couple different purple printed papers) as a background and went with the soft greens for the oval shape to emboss Tink on.

I wrapped some hemp twine on top of the purple part of the card and attached the Tink ovals on top with 3D dots. It ended up pretty cute!

And finally I glued some paper flowers in bunches along a couple of the sides of the ovals and accented them with some glitter paint in the middle. I sloppy stamped the girl’s names on the envelopes with a dragonfly stamp underneath (which was part of the Tinkerbell stamp set).

Here is the final product… Hope you like it! >>
