It's my turn to share a tutorial at She's A Sassy Lady today and I chose my daughter's invites as a project.
My sweet Anna is turning 8 this month and wanted a purple monkey cake - so specific for 8! She also wanted monkey (Create A Critter) invites hanging from the number 8! Again specific...she is all about the details! LOL - so I've decided to do a short tutorial on making single layer invites. Instead of a card I wanted to make a flip over card basically because the monkey hanging from the 8 would be a little unsteady unless I placed it directly on a rectangle piece of paper. I also like to use as little paper as possible. I laid each element out on my Gypsy first and then split them up and made multiples.
Monkey Shadow (Brown Bazzil) and Monkey Front (Purple paper from Basic Grey stack Oh Baby! Girl)
Monkey Middle (Yellow Basic Grey stack Oh Baby! Girl and 8 backing in Green Basic Grey stack Oh Baby! Girl)
Front of 8 in Basic Grey elephant paper from Oh Baby! Girl stack and Brown Bazzil for shadow
