Pool Party Invites


My good friend asked me a few weeks ago if I could make some Pool Party invites for her daughter. The theme was going to be a Luau so she wanted something that would fit the decor. I immediately knew what stamp I wanted to use. A few months back I purchased this adorable Impress Umbrella rubber stamp. It was an impulse buy since I really didn't need it but I loved it and I knew it would come in handy sometime. And it did!! I stamped the umbrella on Whisper White card stock and then cut it out. Then using my beloved Scor-Pal I scored the ridges and then folded it to make it look 3d. The background is Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms set. The flower centers have liquid pearls and the ribbon is May Arts. Other card stock used is SU Elegant Eggplant and the back (not shown) is Pretty in Pink which is embossed with the swirls cuttlebug folder. These were so easy and quick to make and my friend really enjoyed them.
