Card A Day Blog Post: Invitations

Hi there, I'm here again with another entry for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, Invitations. I already had this card made a while ago, but it was never finished, and I thought it would make a wonderful invitation to a BBQ.

To make my card, I first started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, then added a piece of patterned paper from " The Guy Stack" from Die Cuts With A View, cut to 5.25" x 4", to the front of the card base.

For my image, I used the digistamp, BBQ Alf, from Digistamp Boutique. I printed it out on white card stock at about 3.5" x 3.5", then cut around the edge. I colored the image with Copic Markers, but since I started this card some time ago, I can't remember the exact colors I used. I matted the image with a piece of green card stock cut just a bit larger than my image. I then adhered my image to the card base. For the message below the image, I used a " You are invited " stamp that I had in my stash, and matted that with brown card stock, and added that under the image.

On the inside, I printed out what the invitation was for, in this case, a Bar-B-Q, the date, time, location, and a space for other information.

I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for some BBQ now! I hope you get a chance to leave me a comment, so I know what you think about my card, I would truly appreciate it.
