Camping Party

Hi everyone! I hope you had a fabulous week! Any weekend plans?

Today I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog. I'm sharing a birthday party invitation using two of their stamp sets:

I stamped and fussy cut the raccoon from Campfire Tails (love him; love the set) and paired it with the "birthday" and party banner from the Winged Wishes set. I wanted to make the invitation mass-producible, so I kept the coloring very minimal. Here's a close-up:

I added angle washi tape again (like I did here). It was a fast way to give the card base a little pizazz.

The invitation matches the party favor box I made during the Newton's Nook July release. One more item, and I'll have an ensemble. :)

I'm entering the invitation in the Birthday Party Invitation Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. The Birthday Creations challenges end on Monday, so there's still time to enter.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Wow this is adorable, love the color combination :)

  5. This card makes me smile! I love your color combo!

  6. Super cute. Love how that washi tape is wonky!

  7. So much fun! You're right, the angled washi adds that extra bit of pizzazz, but still the star is that cutie raccoon!

  8. Sooooooooo cute!!! LOVING that raccoon!!!!

  9. oooh, the colors, and that orange woodgrain ... a knock-out! My favorite part, though, is the angled washi. Such an easy way to change things up, with great impact, and low effort. The perfect combination!
