Card A Day Blog Post: Invitations

Thank you for stopping by today, It's my turn again to post on the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is " Invitations".

For my invitation, I decided to make a single page card, instead of a folded one. For my image, I chose a digital stamp from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, Party Pig Trio. When I saw this digi stamp, I thought it would be perfect for this project.

I used one of my scrap book programs on my computer to size the image, then I used the text tool to add the title, date, time and place. I then printed the image on white card stock, then trimmed it to 4"x 5". I colored the rest of the image with Copic Markers, RV10 and R22 for the pigs, and for the balloons, hats, and confetti, I used, B24, B28, G05, G14, R05, R29, Y08 and YR07. 

To finish my card off, I adhered my image to a piece of 4.25" x 5.25" red card stock. The back of my invitation was left blank, but it could be used to add some other information, such as directions, etc.

I hope you like my little party invitation, and if you get the chance, please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think of it. Be sure to visit the Card A Day Blog every day, for lots of great card ideas, and be sure to check out our monthly challenge for a chance to win a great prize!
