So for today, I wanted to share this adorable birthday invitation. One of my sister's friends hired me to make invitations for her little boy's 3rd birthday. They were having a Cars theme, so I immediately emailed Ellen Kemper, the punch art queen, to see if she had any good ideas for making the car. Luckily she did. I used her basic car design and brought Lightning McQueen to life (okay so he is not really alive) on the card.
Not bad if I do say so myself. Lightning is made with all punches from Stampin' Up!. I absolutely love how versatile these punches can be. The "look who's turning" is from the stamp set of the same name and is stamped on whisper white paper and punched out with the modern label punch. I layered it onto another modern label punch in pacific point. The sky background is made with my pastels once again. The road is a piece of basic black card stock which I drew a white lane line onto with the white gel pen. The "3" also comes from the Look Who's Turning stamp set. The pole is a strip of brushed silver card stock. As for the highway signs with the number on them and the curvy road sign, those came from my wonderful Cricut machine. Oh, so did Lightning's party hat. The inside of the card had all the party information. I was pleased to know they were very happy with the invites. With all the nephews I have, I am sure I will be able to use this guy again.
Well, that's all for today. I will be back to working on stain glass cards today and hopefully have one to share with you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.
