Birthday Invites



My son and one of his friends have birthdays that are 1 day from each other. Most years, the boys have insisted on having their own party. But this year, we talked them into having a combined party at the local lazer tag place.


I was in charge of making invites, so I ordered the So Cool set from Stampin' Up. You can see the Totally Awesome stamp on the front!


I made the rest of the invite by drawing 2 circles using my Signo white gel pen from Stampin' Up and adding the cross hairs (like a lazer target). Then, I printed off the words Lazer Tag, using the font Chrome (I forget which site I downloaded it from), cut it out and added it to the target. Then I stmped the Totally Awesome stamp in black, added "Birthday" from Everyday Flexible Phrases (SU!) and hand printed "Party". I cut it out and added it to the front. The back includes all the details about the party.


Both my son and his friend gave me the "thumbs up" on the invites so I made enough to go around. The invidual kids names are printed on the front with white. I am sure the boys will all have fun :-)


Thanks for visiting. Donelda
