an invitation, a thank you and a free download

  I wanted to share my birthday invitations and thank you notes I made for my daughter's birthday.

If you missed my gazillion pictures of the party, you can view them here

I made the scalloped border in a pink color and then glittered it.  The invitation envelopes are a glittery gold lined with a shimmering hot pink paper.  The note card envelope liners are what designers say "is the jumping off point".  I found this wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby.  The polka dots are playful but seem more grown-up when it's in gold.  I snatched the roll right up...not like it was the only one left or there were tons of people in the aisle.  I just knew this was the direction I wanted to go.

The glitter really does stay on....yeah it made rub off a bit when you run your hand over it.  I really don't know why I didn't see that when I was taking the picture!

 I made these four note cards for personal download use. 

I buy my envelopes from Paper Source.  These note cards fit perfectly in the 4 Bar size.

I wanted to show different embellishment options that you could do...

The first card I simply just rounded the corners - nothing too fancy.

Second card I added I flower and a ribbon leaf.

Third option I again added glitter.

And finally the fourth I tied baker's twine around it with a simple pearl flower attached to the bow.

Now for the download part....this is new for me so please let me know if there are any kinks.

All that I ask is that if you are not a follower or if you are a new visitor, if you wouldn't mind following me and sharing the link. 

You should be able to click on the "Scalloped Note Card" title below and it should take you to Scribd where you can download it....or you can click DOWNLOAD here and that should take you there as well.

Bye for now.
