Don't you just love summer?! Although we had a few rainy days here and there, a majority of the time it has been beautiful sunny days!! I just love the fact that it is warm and I can simply go out without a coat or jacket. Also, what could be more exciting and fun than inviting friends over to have a barbeque in the garden so I made this invitation card in an apron shape:
I tried to make it not too girly so that it can be for both male and female. For the apron shape, I simply took a plain white card and folded it at the top. Then, I used a CD to draw a curved line on both sides and cut these out.
To make the little pocket at the front, I simply adhered foam tape on 3 sides of a small card. This leaves an opening for the tag where you can add all the party details on it.
Here is a closer look of the card. I used scrap papers, hand cut various pieces and assembled the skewer, burger and fork together by using a small amount of glue. Then, the words were stamped by using white ink. Blue eyelets were also used so that ribbons could be threaded through.
Of course, with this card, I will join in Virginia's View Challege #6: Shape Card. This is a fun challenge. It is great to break away from the usual square or rectangular cards. There is something unique about shape cards!! Love them!! ^_^
Edited: How can I forget??!! As I used some scrap papers (snippets) on this card, I would also like to take this card to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 136. Thanks Di for reminding me! Playmates, here I come!! ^_^
Have a lovely evening. Weekend will be here soon! Yippee~
